Judy dreads the idea of getting outside help with math, but she quickly changes her mind when she visits a local college to meet Chloe, her new tutor. Besides adopting a more positive attitude toward math, Judy quickly takes Chloe as her role model in fashion, decorating, and slang. Although McDonald occasionally pokes gentle fun at Judy’s imitation (and occasional misunderstanding) of college ways, there’s no doubt where her sympathies lie. An appended glossary defines terms such as geck, roomie, ’rents, and sick-awesome. Penned with expression and verve, Reynolds’ ink drawings illustrate this amusing addition to the Judy Moody series. Grades 2-4. --Carolyn Phelan
