Gertie's Leap to Greatness

Written by Kate Beasley and Illustrated by Jillian Tamaki

Gertie Reece Foy has a daddy who works on an oil rig, a great-aunt who always finds the lowest prices at the Piggly Wiggly, and two loyal best friends. So when her absent mother decides to move away from their small town, Gertie sets out on her greatest mission yet: becoming the best fifth grader in the universe to show her mother exactly what she'll be leaving behind.
