Description

"From now on, call me Oklahoma!" Paige announces on the first day of fourth grade. She is determined that this year she will be different: someone who is gutsy—brave enough to overcome fear of thunderstorms, master terrifying flips on the highest monkey bars, conquer paralyzing stage fright, and stand up to her tormentor: class bully, Viveca Frye. It takes a lot of work for Paige to bring out her inner Oklahoma, but she's helped along the way by her best friend, her sympathetic teacher, her bratty cousin, and some hilarious but inspiring events at home and at school.
