      ARC from publisher at ALAAllie has mixed feelings about her mother being principal at her elementary school. On the one hand, she gets to know the teachers and staff really well, and enjoys hanging out after school with the other teacher's children, especially the geeky Graham, organized Lexa, and second grader Maddie. On the other, everyone expects her to tell on them, and they give her a wide berth. This isn't too bad, but after she got her best friend Chloe in trouble for having banned tradin [...]

      There's something so delightful about reading a book in less than 24 hours. It's been too long!

      Mellom, Robin Confessions from the Principal’s Kid, 262 pages. Houghton Mifflin, 2017. $17. Content: G (some bullying)Life was okay when Allie’s mom was a teacher, but now that she’s the principal of the elementary school things are definitely not the same. Especially since Allie made the mistake of turning in her best friend for a violation. Now the only kids that really talk to Allie all day are Joel, who just wants to harass her, and the other kids, the Afters, whose parent works at the [...]

      Lukewarm novel for 5th grade readers. Allie West is the daughter of the principal. It is not fun being the daughter of the principal most of the time. Other kids don't know what to make of the consequences in being your friend and your teachers seem to know you all too well. Allie decides to stop hanging out with the Afters, kids whose parents are also teachers at the school and always have to wait until their parents go home and join the Pentagon, a group of math whizzes who are lead by Allie's [...]

      Allie's mom is the principal at her school, and this brings about some good things (like her after school club of friends and getting to know staff members well) and some not-so-good things (like other students' perceptions of her).It was an entertaining realistic fiction book with situations that a lot of students can relate to such as trying to fit in, misunderstandings and falling outs with friends, standing up for others who are being bullied, and dealing with parents who are caring, yet bus [...]

      I received an ARC of this book while at one of my VRC book committee meetings. Quick read with short chapters--I finished it in less than 24 hours.As a former "After" myself, I found this very believable and realistic. (Although for the better part of my "After" career, it was just me and my little sister, and we did not get on very well at the time. The few times we did hang out with other "Afters," it was two boys, who did not get stuck after school as consistently as we did, and we typically [...]

      Cute story! It reminds me of when I was teaching 5th grade. Allie was a great narrator-- she felt very authentic. The author did a great job capturing tween angst and anxiety about school, friends, bullies, parents, and finding your place. This would be a fun read-aloud for 4th or 5th grade.

    8. The Library Lady on said:

      A standard school story, given added spice by the fact that the author based it in part on her own experiences in childhood. Otherwise, this is the millionth kid wants to fit in and doesn't, but eventually does, complete with the former best friend, geeky boy true friend, bully boy, and wise, off beat grownup. Been there, read that, but it's a pretty well done version.

    9. Lauren S on said:

      I really enjoyed this book. It's an excellent story about defining who you are. Allie is a strong character that many readers can relate to --- with not fitting in, or having weird hobbies (maybe not having a mother for a principal). This was a quick read and I'm glad the library chose to purchase this book!

    10. Jaymie on said:

      As a former teacher's kid and a former teacher whose kid had to sit at school more days than not, I really identified with Allie. I loved the group she hangs with - the Afters - and the ways they try to make the best of their extra time at school. Great story about friendship, family, sacrifice and compromise, and the line between tattling and sticking up for your friends.

    11. Candace on said:

      This was a really cute, entertaining book. I genuinely liked Allie, the main character, and I thought the author had a pretty good grip on what kids are like right now and how they talk, etc. I just genuinely liked it. :)

      For the PKs, Teachers' and Principal's kids out there, or kids of any parent who has an authority role in your life, this will lend insight!!

      I really enjoyed this story about a fifth grade girl whose mom is the principal of her elementary school. It's not easy being a principal's kid!

      An awesome book filled with relatable scenes, laughter, surprise, and happiness.

      I loved this something fierce.*Disclosure: I work for HMH, but I do not review HMH titles unless I feel extremely strongly about them as a reader. They have to be something special if I'm going to review them. This is one of those.

    16. Anne on said:

      This is a solid book for young readers. The chapters are short and easy to read, yet it has a good story line. I think kiddos would like this book.
