Olivia Bean, Trivia Queen by Donna Gephart - ADVISABLE

Gephart, Donna Olivia Bean, Trivia Queen 278 pgs. Delacorte Press, 2012. $16.99 Language : G (0 swears 0 “f”); Mature Content: G; Violence: G.  

Olivia Bean loves trivia.  Her favorite show is Jeopardy!  Although she is 12, she wants to be a contestant more than anything else in the world.  Besides, if she gets on the Kids Tournament she’ll be able to visit her dad in California.  

I enjoyed this light read, full of fun trivia, gross trivia and Jeopardy! trivia, Gephart uses the excitement of the competition to balance what is really a story about dealing with the changes in your life when your parents divorce.  Well written.
