One Smart Cookie (Hally) – Susan Cappadonia Love – #1

Can a tiny piece of paper tucked inside a fortune cookie really predict what the future holds? Just ask Hally. She has plenty of experience in the fortune cookie department. Every year on the night before the very first day of school, Hally and her best friend go with their families to the Lucky Wow Restaurant. And every year the words on Hally’s fortunes spell trouble. But Hally is 100% absolutely sure, no-doubt-about-it-positive that fourth grade is going to be her best year yet. That is, until she cracks open the cookie and reads: Things Aren’t Always What They Seem. Which makes her nervous, since “things” were just too good to be true. Suddenly she’s faced with her worst fear. Her best friend is jealous of Hally’s surprising new friend (and you won’t believe who it is). And if she doesn’t get a good grade on an impossibly hard assignment, she won’t be going on the school field trip (SOS!). “Things” are going from bad to worse. Is this how the cookie crumbles? Or is good fortune in her future? (Description taken from the book: One Smart Cookie. Story — Violence/Scariness — N/A Language — Some name calling. Sex/Love —…
