Third grade is a breeze for Alexis. She is confident, happy and is now taking school seriously. Even her demanding mom is pleased with her progress and grades. All is right in the world until the unexpected return of Alexis’ WFE (Worst Friend Ever) – Vanessa. Vanessa’s family has moved back to town and Alexis is now faced with the uncomfortable situation of a forced friendship with an ultra goody-goody tattle-tail. Vanessa loves reporting everything to Alexis’ mom and she can’t figure out why Alexis resents her.

To make matters worse, the class science fair is fast approaching and Alexis wants desperately to win 1st prize. Will her ground breaking, researched-based findings that children need to give up video games and TV upset every kid in school? Third grade just got a heck of a lot more complicated.

Alexis Marcionette writes with her audience in mind and presents her insights in a funny, kid-centric manner sure to generate lots of laughs and page-flipping anticipation. The technology on display in “UGH…You Again!” is unique. As a web-based, chapter eBook, children are able to read at their own pace by utilizing electronic bookmarks and a proprietary text-to-speech engine for “click to hear” individual word functionality. For assessment purposes, built into this eBook is a reading comprehension test and vocabulary building exercises with the results emailed directly to parents and teachers. Fun for kids with education in mind. Everyone will enjoy UGH…You Again!

  • Wow! My kids loved this eBook. I love the fact they are also learning vocabulary while reading. The interactive technologies are very impressive. Also, the related BigIQkids.com learning programs are incredibly affordable for what you get. My son finally got a 100% on his Friday test.
