ABOUT THIS BOOK

Olivia Bean knows trivia. She watches Jeopardy! every night, and usually beats at least one of the contestants! If only she were better at geography, she would try out for kids' Jeopardy! Not only could she win bundles of money, she could go out to tape it in California where her dad, who left their family two years ago and whom she misses like crazy, lives with his new family.
 
But one day Olivia's friend-turned-nemesis, Tucker, offers to help Olivia bulk up her geography knowledge. Before she knows it, she's getting help from all sorts of unexpected sources: her almost-stepdad, superannoying Neil; her genius brother, Charlie; even her stressed out mom. Soon she's breezed through the audition rounds and is headed for the taping in Hollywood. But will the one person she wants to impress more than anything—her dad—show up to support her?

QUOTES

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, January 15, 2012:
“This tale will have readers cheering for the resilient, resourceful Olivia.”
