    The start of the school year in Appleton, Illinois, brings new school librarian, Rita B. Danjerous, and newly elected school-board president Ivana "I don't need to read a book to know I don't like it" Beprawpa into position for a face-off. Not only does the school's broom-closet library now feature a "green dot" collection of titles on controversial or embarrassing topics that students can borrow anonymously, but the librarian is recommending books that keep students—and even some grown-ups!—awake past their bedtimes. Worse yet, Ms. Danjerous refuses to patronize Beprawpa Attire (the only clothing store in town) to outfit her nine-year-old daughter, May B, according to the newly imposed dress code. Beprawpa is set up as a straw villain, so openly corrupt that the climactic school-board meeting is less a forum for airing conflicting views, and more the event where she gets hers. Not their best, but another pun-tastic outing from the Sisters Klise, told entirely in memos, email messages, chats, letters, invoices, and newspaper reports, and dedicated to all "rabble-rousing librarians and scandal-stomping young readers." Grades 3-5. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
