Publisher's Summary

What's special about Cassandra? Absolutely nothing. She's as ordinary as any other fifth grader. And yet her ordinary life is riddled with hilarious and sometimes heart-breaking mishaps as she guides herself through the world of pre-teens on the brink of adulthood. She's the new girl at school, uprooted from her beloved state of Texas and relocated to the hillbilly Ozarks of Springdale, Arkansas. She tries to hold it together as she weathers stubborn parents, vicious dog attacks, and petty cat fights. But when her teacher challenges her to push herself in a friendly competition, Cassie realizes she's been selling herself short. This book compiles episodes 1-6 of season 1, Walker Wildcats Year 1.

Ordinary stories with not much else

This book is kind of a let down even my kids did not really enjoy it. The title doesn’t lie that she is extremely ordinary. Some parts are descriptive but the stuff covered is tedious I actually found myself empathizing with Disney’s Sadness in that one of the best parts is when a dog dies. It recounts a family trip well and a decent recounting of a major disease, but overall the heroine comes across as bratty she pouts for days when things don’t go her way, which is often. Honestly, if I were her grandmother I would expect her present to be a bomb too. This is descriptive of a day in the life of an average new student it just isn’t an interesting description or a very average new student.

Cassie Jones - very likable!

•audiobook• My sons have graduated from high school within the past eight years (yikes! Is that telling my age or what?! No more than when I talk about the books I listen to with my infant granddaughters, I’m sure) but I don’t recall their female friends - nor my girlfriends’ daughters acting quite like this at 11/in middle school. More so in elementary school. So the age of the characters and audience seem off. Dialogue sounds like ... the formula of the books I was reading when I was growing up; not like how I nor other adults talk to their kids. But that’s a minor “non reality” and didn’t calculate into my rating. Narrator was appropriate for the series. She sounded like a young reader. Cassandra Jones’ misadventures were cleverly developed with practical results. Easily a 4 or 5 star push with more polishing. Clean and sweet, it’s a throwback to previous generations with a modern spin. This is my voluntary review of an audiobook received for free.

A cute Children's book

It was a cute Children's book. Cassie is a girl I can identify with. She is really into academics. I was at that age too. I got this book through storyorigins and this is my voluntary and honest review.

So Adorable!

Cassandra is nervous. She just moved to a new place. She'll be starting a new school. She knows nobody. She's pleasantly surprised to find how quickly she fits in and makes friends. She also joins a lot of activities that she really enjoys. I really enjoyed this story. I found it very adorable. I also found it very realistic. There were a few things that I didn't really care for in the book, but they actually happen. Not writing about them doesn't exactly make them go away. I can say that this book has helped me NOT miss some of the dramas we experienced in school. I think all the characters were adorable. There were a few snotty brats in the book, but they exist in the real world too. Expecting them to be punished for their actions when they don't in reality would be a stretch as well. I did really see the child me in Cassandra. Well, in some ways. This book was narrated by Hysha Nesmith. I do not have a problem with her narration. I felt like she could have been reading a story to children in schools or libraries. She knew her audience and she nailed it. There were just a few minor issues I had with it. The noise at the beginning of each chapter was a little cringy, but minor. She also has parts of the book where she gets a little choppy. This book combines all the volumes of Year 1 into one book. I think it was pretty clever. I know I'm not a child, but I enjoyed this book. I may not have children now but I may one day and it will be nice to have a list of books I'd willingly read to them already!

Great book for girl 10-12 yo

I enjoyed this book. The narrator did a decent job and was pleasant to listen to. She wasn’t consistent with the different character voices and there wasn’t much difference in character voices or narration voice. She also didn’t flow in her reading, pausing at wrong times not with a period etc. the author did a great job creating a world of a 5th grader. It was appropriate in the situations the girl faced and the thoughts and emotions a typical 5th grader would experience was spot on. Listening to this book brought back memories of when I was in 5th grade and I was able to relate to the characters. Great job. I think my daughter would enjoy this book if she were age 10 or older.
