This is a fairly enjoyable story about a girl who is having a hard time adjusting for fourth grade. As I was reading this, I kept thinking to myself ...

Step Fourth Mallory is a great book!It's about a kid who has a strict teacher and she keeps breaking the rules of her teacher.She tries giving fashion advice to her teacher and more. But it never works out! She tries a lot of strategies for her teacher to like her more, but read the rest to find out which way works for.I'm not telling you...

Mallory is both appealing & realistic. The books contain lessons without being heavy.
