Olivia Bean, Trivia Queen

By: Donna Gephart

BOOK TALK

Olivia loves playing Jeopardy! more than anything else in her life, and her dream is to be a contestant on the show and meet Alex Trebec.  Since her parents’ divorce, her father lives in California where the show is filmed, so now more than ever she wants to make it on the show so she can visit him.  When the opportunity for her to try out for kid’s week presents itself, she enlists her family and even her pesky neighbor, Tucker, to help her study for the show.  Surprisingly, her mother’s boyfriend encourages her and helps her as much as anyone.  Even after repeated calls to her father, he offers no help or support.  In spite of her disappointment, she successfully proceeds through the stages of elimination and on the day of the show, she surprises everyone, including herself!
