What could possibly go wrong …If a super-cute boy (one you really want to impress) assumes that you’re a championship skier and snowboarder, is it really that big of a deal if you don’t set him straight?When a teensy fib starts snowballing out of control, Hannah Smart realizes she needs cash to keep from being found out.

I had the opportunity to read a digital ARC of this book from NetGalley. I think that this book would be pretty popular in my fifth grade classroom. Many of my students really enjoy stories about middle school drama, and this book has plenty of that. This book reminds me a lot of Dork Diaries: Tales from a Not-So-Fabulous Life by Rachel Renee Russell only without the illustrations. Hannah Smart is starting her first day of middle school in her new town of Maple Ridge. That's stressful enough, especially since many of the kids aren't very nice to her. Hannah's next-door-neighbor and new best friend, Gabby and her super cute brother, A.J., convince her to join the middle school ski and snowboarding club. Because Hannah moved to Maple Ridge from Vermont, everyone assumes she's a skier. Hannah is afraid to let on that she's never skied before, because she's afraid no one will like her.As this misunderstanding begins to snowball out of control, Hannah takes on a job at the local television station where her father is the new weather reporter. Because Hannah is very clever and resourceful, she winds up with her own on-air weekly segment on the evening news.As the date of the club's ski trip approaches, Hannah is going to have to either learn how to ski like a pro or come clean to everyone that she doesn't really know how to ski. Along the way, there are all sorts of funny moments of middle school drama that really make this book a lot of fun to read.For my complete review, please visit my blog: http://www.janatheteacher.blogspot.co...
This was a great, easy read for pre-teens and early adolescents (although I'm far outside that window and still enjoyed it). The author made the story very relatable and did an awesome job of portraying Hannah's inner dialogue in a way that everyone can connect with. Loved that fact that it was the second in a series but could be read as a stand-alone. It is also a great resource for middle school teachers to have in their arsenal as it relates to key values students are experiencing at this age (making new friends, popularity, being honest with yourself/others, crushes, etc.)*I received this book through the Goodreads Giveaway program for an open and honest review*
I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I thought this book was very well written. This would be a fun book for YA. Great job.
Another fun romp with Hannah Smart. Classic teen comedy done with modern flare.
