  • I liked some of this author's later work about the gritty reality of life as an LGBT teen, so I checked out some of her earlier work. I've been pretty disappointed with it, but especially with this one. It's very similar in content and structure to another one of hers that I disliked--Love Me, Love My Broccoli--and it's just about as soulless, contrived, and full of unnecessarily cruel references.Ostensibly, this is a story about a girl who is popular and ambitious with her spelling bee "career" [...]

  • SPOILER ALERT: How Do You Spell Geek? Is a short fiction book about friendship and competition. Basically, it’s about two best friends that were separated , but in the end they were brought together even closer with a new friend. It was published by Julie Anne Peters. I think the theme has to do with accepting new people into your life. In the beginning , Ann and Kimberly were as close as ever , however, a new girl named Lurlene drifted them apart. Ann thinks that all Kimberly cares about is t [...]

  • How Do You Spell G-E-E-K? is a fast-paced, light, fun and enjoyable read.Best friends Kimberly and Ann both have a dream to make it to the National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C. Eighth grade is the last year they can qualify, so they are practicing day and night. But when Ann is assigned to sponsor new student Lurlene Brueggemeyer, who turns out to be an amazing speller, suddenly her relationship with Kimberly and her chances of winning the competition are put to the test.One reason I read th [...]

  • Ann and Kimberly have been training as competitive spellers for ages, but now their studying camaraderie and even their friendship is threatened by one thing--or rather, one person. Homeschooled new girl Lurlene is assigned to Ann for mentorship, and everything about this girl is geeky--her appearance, her actions, even her laugh. At first Ann resents that sponsoring Lurlene is scaring away cute boys and interrupting spelling practice with Kimberly, but when she genuinely develops an investment [...]

  • This is a great story of middle school friendships and how they change. Ann and Kimberley have been best friends for years. They're both spelling bee addicts, and spend most of their spare time quizzing each other from the dictionary in preparation for the upcoming state spelling bee. But lately things have changed: Ann's parents recently divorced, yet Kimberley seems more intersted in spelling than in how hard the divorce has been on her friend. When a new girl comes to town, Ann is assigned by [...]

  • I'm starting to enjoy Julie Anne Peters' writings. Her unusual type of story caught me and opens a whole new kind of world for me. This one is no different. About a popular girl, Ann, asked by the school principal to be a sponsor for a new girl. Shows her way around the school, and make sure she feels welcome after all this time she's been home schooling. Turns out the girl, Lurlene, is a well, geek. Ann's bestfriend, Kimberly, doesn't approve her going around the school with the geek girl. To p [...]

  • Ann Keller has a lot to deal with this eight grade year: her parents have just recently divorced, her mom moved away, she and her best friend, Kimberly, are studying to get into The National Spelling bee, and she has just been asked by the principal to sponsor the new student, Lurlene, who is a little different.Lurlene quickly becomes the class target of bullying. Therefore, Ann quickly realizes things she hadn't seen before in the people around her, including Kimberly and the boy Ann oh-so-desp [...]

  • "How Do You Spell Geek?" is a personal favorite of mine, actually. I'm not sure if it was just me, but I believed that the narrator would be the "geek" referred to in this story. I was a bit surprised when I figured out that it was sort of the opposite, but the story played out well anyways. Ann and Kimberly have been best friends for a very long time, and when they first lay eyes on new student Lurlene Brueggemeyer and Ann gets assigned to be her "sponsor" around school, they think this could b [...]

  • This book kept me hanging! I just couldn't put the book down!! I would recomend this book to. people who like books that are kind of short (page 3-139). The book is interesting, well at least I think so. I thought the book was so good that i am going to read a bunch more of Julie Anne Peters books like Luna, Revenge of the Snob Squad, By the time you read this, I'll be dead, Romance of the Snob Squad, and A snitch in the Snob Squad.

  • I gave this book 4 stars because I thought it was interesting that it was about 2 friends that spilt up after a new girl comes. I like to read realistic fiction books about things that can really happen. I liked that they became friends in the end. I like reading books wear everyone is happy in the ending. It just makes me feel good. I also liked when they were competeing in the spelling bee. I couldn't stop reading at that point because i wanted to see who would win.

  • A new girl who has been home schooled and dresses rather unusually enrolls in Public School and Ann has to be her sponsor. Ann and her best friend are practicing for the National Spelling B and this new girl comes between them. This is a story that can relate with a teen age girls as they deal with peer pressure and their own conscience.

  • What is your favorite part of this book? I would have to say my favorite part of this book was when Ann has to show the new girl around and her name is Lurlene and she isn't the prettiest girl but she has photographic memory.What came as a surprise to you in this book? I would have to say the part when they all make it to the spelling bee.

  • I enjoyed this one. Will add it to my classroom library in the social issues mix. It deals with fitting in and well not fitting in. The cruelty of girls in the middle-school. I think it is really on the rise.

  • Just because an author whose books I love is on a shelf at the library, doesn’t mean I’m going to love each book by the author. This is middle grade book and about three girls competing in the state spelling bee in Colorado. It was ho- hum for me, it may be perfect for you.

  • This book was okay it was pretty easy . I learned that you can do anything only if you put your mind to it don't let other's dought you . Just proove those people wrong so they will look stupid. I also learned that you can be ugly,pretty,and all that and still be the bomb!
