Gertie's Leap to Greatness
Gertie wants to be great and for the most part her two best friends go along with her missions. But when Gertie finds out that her mother, who left a long time ago and whom she never sees, is moving out of town Gertie ramps up her mission. But a new girl in town threatens her plans and she finds out that friends can be fickle, feelings can be hurt, and maybe things aren't what they seem.
I liked the beginning of the book but the ending fell flat for me. There was a whole subplot about her father's job that was never resolved at all. In fact, the last time she saw her father in the book they left each other on bad terms. While Gertie did learn how to handle some disappointment and learned aa lesson about her mother it still was a downer ending with no real resolution.
