$25 Amazon/PP-1-WW-Holly and the Stolen Test-Dianne Harman Ends 6/18

Wednesday, June 3, 2020


Holly has a photographic memory and has no problems with any of her classes. She even makes money tutoring other students. But in her high school there is this one class with this one professor who refuses to grade on a curve and is noted for his hard tests-- and a major test coming up, The class--Geometry. I was never able to this day to understand or learn that subject so I totally understand why what happened almost happened. I still hear the word geometry and shudder!!!!!!

Holly actually got in trouble because she was trying to find the person who stole the test and was selling it. Holly ended up grounded because Bridget would not listen to Holly's side of the story!! I honestly loved the way Holly handled it all without naming names and so will you!!

I really suggest you get your teens to read this one--there are a couple of really good lessons embedded in this story!


About the Book: (from Amazon)

A stolen test
A relationship in trouble
Parents too quick to judge
A teenage world upended

When Holly learns that a geometry test has been stolen and it’s being sold to students, she’s angry on a number of levels. Sure doesn’t help to find out her boyfriend, Wade, is contemplating buying it.

And when she’s caught on video by the principal with a number of questionable students being offered a vape pen, and the principal calls her parents and they ground her, she’s in disbelief.

Should she do nothing or try to find the thief and convince them to do the right thing. What would you do? Good thing she has Lucky, her Maltipoo mix, to comfort her.

This is the seventh book in the Holly Lewis Mystery Series by a USA Today Bestselling Author and Amazon All Star.

Yes, I would listen to my child first. Things are not always as they seem. And children don't always understand a situation and need to be taught.

Darlene said...

I would listen to my Childs explanation

Charlotte Litton said...

U would listen to my child. Algebra has difficult at first.

Cherisse said...

Yes, I would ask and listen to my child first. And yes, calculus ugh!

Yes, I would ask to hear my child's version first. Algebra was my worst nightmare!

Tracy R said...

I never had to take geometry, but I am pretty sure that I wouldn't understand it.

Deb PelletierC said...

I would listen to the child's side of the problem first. I had a hard time with Algebra.

susan1215 said...

Yes, I would ask to hear my child's version first. Algebra one of my most difficult classes.

Lynn Brown said...

I would listen to what my child said first and go from there. I did not care for Algebra or Geometry.

Jane Starcher said...

Always allow a child to explain and listen to what and how they say it.

wendy Hutton said...

I would talk with my child first to see what they say

Thanks for the contest.

James Robert said...

I definitely would listen to and ask questions to my child.

Audrey Stewart said...

Dianne Harman is one of my favorite authors. I love all her books.

Audrey Stewart said...

I failed 8th grade math. Went to summer school and failed again. They just ended up social promoting me.

Nancy said...

I would listen to both sides of the story first.

katieoscarlet said...

I would listen to both sides. I just couldn't get algebra in high school.

Mya Murphy said...

I would set up a meeting and have my child and the teacher there so there's no back and forth. I would listen individually, at first then set it up immediately. I was always in advanced classes, but the subject I truly had to study for, was history. It was hard to keep up with dates and names..

Linda Manns Linneman said...

I would definitely listen to my child and then talk to whoever was that made the complaint. I would probably want a meeting with all involved

Bay City Amber said...

Yes I would listen to them first, because there are two sides to every story and sometimes teachers aren't always right. When I was in first grade, I was setting up my dolls at home and throwing them across the room and yelling at them. My mom asked me where I got that and I told her my teacher. She would yell at kids and flip their desks over.

I had such trouble with chemistry in school. I had to drop out. Other than that I was an A & B student.

peg42 said...

I would listen first to hear both sides before making any decisions.

Christy Maurer said...

Yes, I would listen to my child because there are a lot of misunderstandings in this world even when you're in school! The only trouble I had in school was handwriting! It was a lot better than how kids now write lol. I would have gotten all A's had it not been for that and it has nothing to do with intelligence. Why would you grade it? Okay, off my soap box lol.

jmcgaugh said...

I'd definitely listen to my child. P.E. was my problem subject.

Barbara Montag said...

I would definitely listen to my child's explanation first.

kdrae said...

I was never good at math...still not! :)

Sandra D. said...

I always listened to my child to get their side as they say there are two sides to every story. Was not the best with English love to read but am not good with writing.

Michele S. said...

I would go to school and listen to the principal.. then i would go home and ask my child for their side of the story.. After gathering all the data I would evaluate it and go from there.. Sometimes the authority could be incorrect and also your child is not always an angel.. you must use your intuition and your common sense....As for me trigonometry killed me.. just struggled with it....

clc408 said...

I would always listen to both sides of a story before making up my mind in all circumstances.

Anonymous said...

I would listen my child too. Gaining their trust is so important for their development.

Debbi Wellenstein said...

I would listen to my child-and then I would question why the principal was calling me as he is 46!

Julie Waldron said...

Yes, I would listen to my child to get their side of the story. I could never get math, I can do basic math but when it comes to algebra etc.... I'm lost. I'm 50 and I still hate mathc.

Erin N said...

I would definitely listen to both sides in this situation and make an decision from there.

In high school, I was horrible at math and often skipped class because I couldn't understand most of it and my teacher often called me out and embarrassed me in class.

kayla said...

pre-calculus.. ouch

Natalie said...

I would listen to my kid but trust the principal. I HATED calculus!

DVDgal75 said...

Loving the cover

kimberly said...

I definitely would listen to my child's side to the story. They can learn what's wrong and right by doing that.

tatertot374 said...

I would def listen to their explanation and go from there. I trust my children but would consider all the facts first.

Stephanie Shipley said...

I actually have received a call before based on what another kid said happened, and asked my son about it calmly. He explained and it turned out the kid was bullying him and my son responded. I talked to the teacher and the other kid and his parents were talked to as well and things were handled. I will listen to all sides, but I do believe my son more than others. He is extremely honest regardless of any consequences.
My worst subject in high school was definitely math. I've never done well in that subject.

Sharklady71 said...

This has happened before and I always like to listen to both sides of the story before coming to any conclusion. I seemed to have a lot of trouble with calculus.

Veronica Lee said...

Yes, I would ask to hear my child's version first. Geometry was a subject that I just could not get!

Antoinette M said...

I'd listen to my child first and yes, I struggled with math.

Suburban prep said...

In high school I had an issue with Geometry. I tried and tried and I kept getting slips sent home about grades. I was able to get a tutor and bring up my grade.

Ah needing to cheat like those fruitcakes in california with faking college junk

Sandy Klocinski said...

I would listen to both sides. While I never had a subject I couldn't "get" math in all it's forms was my weakest subject. And the advanced chemistry class I was in my Freshman year of college was hard for me

David Hollingsworth said...

I guess, if I had a child, I would listen to he/she first. There are some subject I liked, and others I didn't.

Amber said...

I would definitely listen to both sides. My favorite subject was history and physics was my least favorite.

PAIGE said...

Yes I would listen to both sides and knowing my child I may be able to find the ttruth.

Holly Thomas said...

I would listen to my child, I refused to dissect a frog in Science.

Juana said...

If I had a child I would listen to him/her. Algebra was my worst subject in HS.

lilyk said...

If I had a child I would listen to him/her. I could never get past pre-algebra.

Christy R. said...

I would listen to my child first. I could never catch on in any kind. of math. class.

wen budro said...

I would absolutely ask my child first before coming down on them. There are two sides to every story. I could not get math....especially algebra....no matter how hard I tried.

Buddy Garrett said...

I would listen to my child's explanation first. Algebra was my Waterloo.

Julieh said...

I would listen to both sides. I hated physics.

Betty C said...

I would always listen to my child before taking any action. Biology was a nightmare for me.
