Girl vs. the World is a fun, true-to-life series about navigating high school, first crushes, and the ups and downs of adolescence. Phoebe's grades aren't exactly perfect, so she thinks it must be a mistake when she's invited to join the debating team. Everyone else seems to know exactly what they're doing, and Phoebe doesn't have a clue! But how can she quit when it would disappoint her teammates - including the super-smart, crazy-cute team captain, Jagath? Refreshingly honest and deliciously heartwarming, this series is perfect for readers aged 10 to 13.
