THE CLASSROOM : TRICK OUT MY SCHOOL
New York : Hyperion, 2014
IL 3-6, RL 6.5
Libby Gardner just knows this is going to make her the most popular student at Westside Middle School. She and the principal have kept it a secret and now it is time to make the big announcement. Libby has entered their school into a contest to win a school makeover -- and they won! None other than Kip Lee is coming to trick out the school for his reality tv show -- Trick Out My School. It is so exciting when the tv crews and the cameras arrive. But the hammering and all the construction is not making everyone happy. What Libby doesn't know is that things are not going to be as wonderful as she thought.
