From School Library Journal
“Full of unapologetic girl power and complete with appended activities based on Maggie’s interest in physics and Lena’s in Dadaism, [Nothing But Trouble] might especially appeal to lonely studious-and-creative types, with its reassurance that they’re not as alone as they may think.” (Horn Book Magazine)
“A vividly realized present-day setting, distinctive, believable characters, subversive humor, and satisfying ending give this title solid kid appeal.” (Kirkus Reviews)
“The story’s high entertainment value is balanced by more serious moments.” (Publishers Weekly)
“The more strong and independent female characters in middle grade the better. Readers are going to fall in love with Maggie and Lena... Jaqueline Davies has done it again: fascinating characters, a page turner, surprising twists and turns! NOTHING BUT TROUBLE is a winner.” (Colby Sharp, Nerdy Book Club)
“Friendship and family fun plus lots of humor make this a real page-turner. Maggie and Lena might be Trouble with a capital T, but they’ve got enough heart and moxie to change the world!” (Bestselling Author Suzanne Selfors)
“Spearheaded by a couple of singular, funny, and complicated characters with a penchant for hacking, this a beautifully and quietly emotional story of the bravery in seeking your own voice and the triumph of connection. I can’t wait to see what comes next for Maggie and Lena. Mus, sum!” (Naphtali Faris, Mid-Continent Public Library)
“A sublimely subversive story of two resourceful girls hacking their way through sixth grade and discovering one of those extraordinary friendships that turn your world upside down and end up fundamentally changing you from the inside out forever.” (Katie Bruce, Youth Services Librarian at the Princeton Public Library)

Because as much as the heroines of this book pull off unbelievable pranks that no middle schooler would reasonably expect to go off successfully -- including winning against the unstoppable forces that rule the school and gaining an unlikely ally -- you can't help but want to believe. Doors and pulleys and piles of parts too convenient to be real just cushion a plot around two girls who would never believe anything is impossible. Who could pull off that much paper mache in that little time? Who cares? If a kid takes these girls as role models, her parents and teachers better hold on tight.
