It was just a little white lie. What could possibly go wrong …

If a super-cute boy (one you really want to impress) assumes that you’re a championship skier and snowboarder, is it really that big of a deal if you don’t set him straight?

When a teensy fib starts snowballing out of control, Hannah Smart realizes she needs cash to keep from being found out. She takes a part-time job at the local TV station where her dad works as the weatherman. After nearly killing a woman (it was an accident!) and then saving her on air, Hannah unexpectedly finds herself in front of the camera again. Loving the spotlight, Hannah is swept up in the excitement of TV land, but with the school ski trip coming up, she soon realizes that some secrets are impossible to keep hidden. But wanting to come clean and doing it are two very different things.

  • Second in a 3-book series featuring Hannah Smart
  • Hannah is 13 years old and in a new school and a new town. Central characters from the first book are carried over, but new characters are introduced
  • Theme of responsibility and self-reliance carried over from Book 1 as Hannah looks for a part-time job to earn money
  • Comedic and light-hearted in tone, but with a message about the importance of being yourself and not feeling you have to exaggerate to impress others
  • Material has tested well with grade 5 and 6 students of both sexes

Melody Fitzpatrick is the author of the Hannah Smart series. When she’s not busy dreaming up stories, she is an educational program assistant in the public school system, helping kids discover their amazing inner awesomeness. Melody lives in Bedford, Nova Scotia.
