In this sequel to President of the Whole Fifth Grade, Brianna navigates her toughest challenge yet: middle school. Brianna is a spunky, strong African-American pre-teen who runs her own business, explores new interests, and stands up for her friends. Sherri Winston skillfully describes that tough transition from elementary school to middle school, with changing friendships and new interests.
Why we like it: Brianna Justice is fun and spunky! And so is the reader of the audiobook. (Perfect match-up. The reader captured the voice of the main character and the story.) Great addition for upper grade fiction. Also, great addition for stories featuring strong African-American female characters.
