Absolutely everything changes for Maia now that she is an orphan. She even moves from a boarding school in London to the untamed wilds of Brazil. But she finds that Brazil is truly amazing- the Amazon River, the dense jungle, and the birth of new friendships. Read this book and get caught up in its vivid images, descriptive dialog, and memorable characters.

When Judy's classmate comes to class boasting of winning the Northern Virginia Spelling Bee, Judy vows that she will also be famous. At home, her brother Stink keeps the 'Moody Hall of Fame' on their refrigerator, but Judy sees only the Stink Hall of Fame. Her attempts range from faking an antique cherry pit to trying to beat the world's record for the longest 'caterpillar' line with her friends. Her second place in the local pet contest leads to a picture of her elbow in the local paper. Will Judy ever become famous? This book is the second in the Judy Moody series.
