About the Book

The first in a must-read middle grade series from Girl Scouts of the USA about a group of fifth graders with lots of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. This novel written by award-winning author Yamile Saied Méndez is perfect for readers who love The Babysitter's Club and American Girl's Girl of the Year series.

Maven wants to be known for something great.

She had been nervous about starting fifth grade after spending all summer with her little brother and baby cousins. So when her fifth-grade teacher announces a district-wide robotics competition, she jumps at the opportunity to be the class’s leader. Being in charge is better and cooler than playing make-believe, right? Many people doubt her, especially the boys in her class, but with the support of her friends and Girl Scout troop, Maven is determined to prove them wrong.

Then she goes overboard with her dedication to the competition, and she seems to be disappointing everyone—including herself. She begins to realize maybe being herself is what she needed to do all along.
