Cute story about an anxious girl, Ava, who finds a pencil which when asked a fact-based question, gives an answer. The pencil reveals family secrets, crushes, math formulas. But Ava feels like she gets a little obsessed. Over the course of the story, Ava finds some bravery and gives her family some insights. ( )

Really enjoyed this story. A magic pencil gives give two middle school all the answers they are seeking. Some things are better off not knowing. The girls use the pencil to tell fortunes, find out about boys, help family members, and help some residents in an old folks home. The part about the old folks home really made my heart smile. This would be a good book for a discussions on watching what you wish for. ( )

I think this is a good book for students to read. It was written recently, so it has references the students can understand. I also think that it embodies the old saying, be careful what you wish for. ( )

Ava is an extremely anxious girl but luckily she has a very good friend in Sophie to help her overcome some of her worries. She discovers a pencil, which will give her the answer to factual questions, in the middle of a math test. The resulting story is a good mix of school story, fantasy, family story and, throughout the story, living with anxiety. It is all woven together quite well. ( )

I enjoyed this book. What questions would you ask if you had a magic pencil? What do you do when you know bad news before anyone else? How do you handle anxiety when you just have to wait? This book looks at all these questions and more. Engaging central character. Fun read. Touching moments. I'm glad I read it. ( )
