Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 5–8—Maggie's friendship with Allie and Emily is not the only thing coming to an end. This is the last year Odawahoka Middle School will be in existence, and this year's sixth grade is the final class. Classrooms have been shuttered, programs have been suspended, and labs have been locked up tight. As Maggie's old friends are finding different interests, new girl Lena appears. Lena is a self-possessed artist, into photography and the Dada movement. She is very un-Odawahoka, and she has decided that she is going to be Maggie's best friend. The problem is that Maggie is harboring some secrets and she needs to decide how much she is going to let Lena know; she's often the one left taking care of her cranky grandfather, her mom disappears into her room at night with a bottle in hand, Maggie is maintaining a secret website selling vintage autoparts, and there is her late father's Hacker Bible. Before he died, her father was a brilliant engineer who pulled off epic hacks with aplomb, and Maggie is determined to follow in his footsteps and make this last year at Odawahoka Middle School memorable for her classmates. As controlled chaos seems to reign beneath the crumbling roof of their middle school, both girls discover more about friendship, family, school spirit, and themselves than they imagined. VERDICT This pitch-perfect start to a new series captures the power dynamics between adults and children and allows for the realization that everyone has a story worth hearing.—Stacy Dillon, LREI, New York City

Review

“Captures the power dynamics between adults and children and allows for the realization that everyone has a story worth hearing.” (School Library Journal (starred review))

“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)
