That's Debatable


Jen Doll

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Millicent Chalmers isnt here to make friends.

Shes here to win, and shes on track to set a record ifno, whenshe wins the state debate tournament for the fourth year in a row. Calm, cool, and always in control, Millie doesnt care what anyone else thinks of her, least of all the sexist bullies bent on destroying her reputation.

Taggart Strong couldnt care less about winning debate, much to the consternation of his teammates, school and parents. In fact, he might even enjoy losing, as long as the side he believes in wins.

But when a tournament takes a scary turn, Millie and Tag find themselves unexpectedly working together. Maybe Millie can teach Tag a thing or two about using his head, and Tag can teach Millie a little bit about following her heart.
