    • My 8 year old daughter loved it and wrote a book review. Below is what she typed.I loved this book!!!!I like how Mya became friends with Connie. I also liked how Mya was really creative with spirit week. And even if she didn’t win spirit day she got something even better so I liked that things didn’t go the way that she planned she still got good things. I also liked Nugget’s friend Fish he was really funny and was really nice. Solo was not a nice person he was not actually Nugget’s frie [...]


    • I can’t imagine a middle grade aged child not loving Mya Tibbs, for I can’t fathom anyone of any age not falling instantly in love with this little girl. That’s what happened to me! Author Crystal Allen, with The Magnificent Mya Tibbs: Spirit Week Showdown, has created a captivating, energetic, ‘always has a plan’ nine year old, and Mya wins your heart. Allen’s amazing little girl from Bluebonnet, Texas, is convinced she can conquer the world—or at least win the spirit week challen [...]


    • Mya and her best friend Naomi, want to win the school's contest for VIP tickets to the festival but when things don't go their way, Mya learns what real friendships are all about along with some hard lessons on trust and loyalty. This is a great story for students in 3rd grade and up.


    • I wasn't excited about this Texas Bluebonnet nominee - the cover art didn't appeal to me, and the summary sounded like it was going to be a light, fluffy, girl-drama kind of read and I hate those. But it was short, and having just finished a heavy book I needed something light, so I jumped in. Boy, was I surprised! This story pulled a deep - and not easy - emotional response from me; I even found myself thinking about the characters the day after I finished the book, as if they were real. That's [...]


    • Early middle grade readers have a new best friend! Crystal Allen has created a unique, jump-off-the-page character in Mya Tibbs, the rootin’est tootin’est kid in fourth grade. The wonderful cast of school friends (and enemies), teachers, school principal (you’re going to love his Spirit Week costume!) and a warm, loving family guarantee this series will be a sure hit.


    • This was ok, but nothing super special. If a kid really loves spirit week, they might be interested in the story. The narrative voice feels forced.


    • Crystal Allen has written a wonderful book for my girls! Mya Tibbs is just like any of my students-struggling to make good decisions, trying make good friends and be one, and dealing with the ups and downs of school, family and life in general. And she does it with exuberance and joy, always throwing 100% at every task. I loved this book and know that my fourth and fifth graders will, too. Teachers will appreciate the cast of well-developed characters, the clear plot, and themes of friendship, f [...]


    • My kids really liked this book. It made them laugh, but also had good messages about real friendship, bullying and the damage that gossip and rumors can cause. The characters are lovable, and while parents may find the plot predictable, kids will be cheering for Mya, and happy with the ending.


    • Great story about friendship. Wonderful characters that reflect the hardships encountered while trying to figure out who your "real" friends are.


    • Excellent book for a 4th grade girl. It's a nominee for the Young Hoosier Book Award (Indiana - kids read and then vote). I don't see it winning because it doesn't have universal appeal to boys. There is also an attempt at Texan/kid vocabulary (anyone ever heard of something being boo-yang cool?) that I could see the kids rolling their eyes at. Not my favorite, but has some good lessons about friendship.


    • I loved Mya’s family so much by the end of this book. I enjoyed the nuances of friendship, Mya’s relationship with her brother (and that we got another semi central character figure that wasn’t just all girls), and Connie made me feel inspired!I also want to note there were a few truly beautiful scenes about talking about your struggles with loved ones, and a father figure who talks about feelings and openly shows care. This black family (!!!!!!!) is just what I’ve always wished I could [...]



    • 4.5 StarsA stereotype hog-tying tale of friendship, loyalty, empathy, and forgiveness. This book explores the pitfalls of “popularity,” along with the folly of judging people by their looks, clothing, or the rumors spread about them. It also examines the many faces of bullying—all on a vibrant level that most elementary-aged children should be able to connect with.Mya Tibbs is a spirited, well-meaning 4th-grader with a cowgirl obsession and a knack for tall tales. When a promise accidental [...]

If the two girls win, they get coveted VIP tickets to the Fall Festival. But then things don’t go as planned and Mya ends up with Mean Connie Tate as a partner, and Naomi is furious. So furious, that other kids are calling Mya names and she has to think of a way to win back her BFF and survive being Connie’s partner. Good gravy!Crystal Allen’s The [...]


    • SPIRIT WEEK SHOWDOWN by Crystal Allen is the first book in the new Magnificent Mya Tibbs series for middle grade readers.Mya and her best friend Naomi plan to win the Spirit Week partners competition. However when Mya is reluctantly paired with Mean Connie Tate, her hopes for winning VIP tickets to the Fall Festival quickly disappear. This authentic, endearing story explores many kinds of friendships and what it means to be a friend.Librarians will find this charming and often humorous book to b [...]


    • A pretty typical MG book dealing with stereotypes and who should be your real friends. I am sure we are all familiar with the premises of books like these, but I thought the author did a great job of telling a story that wasn't too cliché. The people in this book had a lot of character, and were a lot of fun! I'd recommend it for any kid's library.I received this book through giveaways.


    • Crystal Allen has remarkable talent in creating characters who laugh and love, who find some trouble and learn to solve problems. Her unique humor shines as her characters, Mya and friends, deliver the best times of middle school days to all readers who live in middle school classrooms wishing for a laugh and a great story of friends and fun.


    • I think I will have so many kiddos who will love this book. I, unfortunately, did not enjoy it. This is a very predictable book and the dialogue is sometimes all over the place. Students will love Mya and the sweet story. It is a great book to use for bullying and friendship with a class of students. I was just wishing for something stronger, but I know my students will be happy with Mya Tibbs.


    • Irresistible 4th grade heroine and an engaging cast of characters learn some rough lessons about friendship in this school/family story set in Texas. Love the setting and the dynamic between her brother and the popular kid, especially. Really smart about the inner lives of 4th graders. Also, super fun and cute in a way that real kids would like.


    • This is a really cute book for an elementary school reader. The main characters, especially Mya, are really easy to like, and the main plot that revolves around the activities for Spirit Week at school are amusing. But what makes the book useful to give to younger readers is how it handles the theme of real friendships versus fake ones.


    • I received this book from a giveawayThis book has excellent characters and a cute story. I am always looking for books to encourage reading for my friends children. I think this book will be definitely one that I will be encouraging all the young girls.


    • I read an ARC of this story about a girl working through troubles with friends-something almost all students will relate to, but in this case, Mya has to solve her problems by the end of her school's Spirit Week. Students will enjoy this humorous story as each day's events unfold.





    • Mya is a fun character and I think young readers will like her. There were parts of the story that I chuckled out loud and parts that made me think about real life situations.


    • Supercute, with an awesome Black MG who knows how to lasso!I'm not into the competition of spirit week, though. Kinda painful to read. And like, they can just declare competitions? What?



    • Mya Tibbs loves basking in the glow of her new BFF Naomi Jackson the local beauty queen. There isn't anything Mya would do to endanger this friendship. At school spirit week is just around the corner and there is no doubt Mya and Naomi will be a force to be reckoned with as partners. However Mya gets partnered with Mean Connie Tate instead. Connie has the reputation as the meanest bully in history and she refuses to let Mya out of their partnership. Naomi makes it clear that she is beyond disapp [...]


    • A fun new series featuring a spunky character that readers will want to get to know! Aspiring cowgirl Mya Tibbs is gung ho for spirit week but when she's paired with the school bully, it causes friction between her and her best friend.This book features a great family dynamic and a coming of age realization about what makes a friend a real one. It also delves into how we may be as bad as a bully and not even know it. Hopefully, it will spark some classroom discussions! (Although, there are real [...]
