    1st printing. Written by Kate Beasley. Art and cover by Jillian Tamaki. Won in a major six-house auction, this hilarious and heartfelt middle-grade debut features a girl on a mission to be the best fifth grader ever. Gertie Reece Foy is 100% Not-From-Concentrate awesome. She has a daddy who works on an oil rig, a great-aunt who always finds the lowest prices at the Piggly Wiggly, and two loyal best friends. So when her absent mother decides to move away from their small town, Gertie sets out on her greatest mission yet: becoming the best fifth grader in the universe to show her mother exactly what she'll be leaving behind. There's just one problem: Seat-stealing new girl Mary Sue Spivey wants to be the best fifth grader, too. And there is simply not enough room at the top for the two of them. Hardcover, 7-in. x 9-in., 256 pages, Text (with B&W Chapter Illustrations). Cover price $16.99.
