Olivia Bean, Trivia Queen

book | Mar 2012
UK & Canada → Delacorte Press
Olivia Bean knows trivia. She watches Jeopardy! every night and usually beats at least one of the contestants. If she were better at geography, she would try out for the show’s kids’ week. Not only could she win bundles of money, she’d get to go to the taping in California, where her dad, who left two years ago and who Olivia misses like crazy, lives with his new family.

One day Olivia’s friend-turned-nemesis, Tucker, offers to help her bulk up her geography knowledge. Before Olivia knows it, she’s getting help from all sorts of unexpected sources: her almost-stepdad, superannoying Neil; her genius little brother, Charlie; even her stressed-out mom. Soon she has breezed through the audition rounds and is headed for Hollywood! But will the one person she wants to impress more than anyone else show up to support her?

"A tender, funny portrayal of a girl learning to appreciate both what she has and what she has to offer, this will appeal to both the brains and hearts of readers."
The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"The real draw in this tender, triumphant novel from Gephart is Olivia’s successful progression through Jeopardy!’s hoops and the happy ending for one particularly deserving contestant."
