Fiona Finkelstein Meets Her Match!
The second title in the funny, thoughtful and altogether delightful FIONA FINKELSTEIN series for 7-10s.
Fiona Finkelstein’s life is always a bit like a TV show. Everywhere she goes, there’s a lot of drama. That’s what being 9 years old in Ordinary, Maryland, is like when your dad is chief meteorologist for the local TV station, your mom lives in California and stars in a soap opera, and your little brother thinks he’s a superhero.
Fiona’s world is set to become even more dramatic when new boy Milo Bridgewater joins her fourth-grade class at Ordinary Elementary. Milo seems to be the very opposite of ordinary, and when his popularity and interest in starting a school meteorology club threaten to overshadow Fiona, she starts her own series of clubs – including one especially for matchmaking – in an attempt to outdo him.
