Girl Overboard!: Everything’s Coming Up Rosie (book 3)
- About the Author & Illustrator
I’m surviving middle school and living in Singapore! Mom is still cooking up a storm, making delicious local food; Alex is still annoying, as usual; Dad is still busy making sure that we are all happy.
I’ve decided to join the water polo class as my extra-curricular activity. That’s going to be real fun. Now all I have to do is grab my googles and swim gear and go.
The next few months will be BLISSFUL, right?
Tired of all the trouble Sharon has caused since Rosie arrived in Singapore, Rosie is determined to stay as far as possible away from her rival. So she signs up for water polo (yes, seriously, water polo). But Ben accidentally signs Rosie up for student council, and she finds herself running for president—against Sharon! Can middle school get any worse?
“A very promising voice…Rosie is bright and spunky, headstrong yet endearing—a girl who knows her mind. She is sure to find a lot of friends (and devoted readers) in Singapore.”
—Dr Myra Garces-Bacsal, Assistant Professor, National Institute of Education, Singapore
