Is winning top prize worth losing a friend?

Junko Tabei: The first woman to reach the top of Mount Everest.

Rita Moreno: The first Hispanic actress to win an Academy Award.

Gwendolyn Brooks: The first African American author to win the Pulitzer Prize.

Allie Velasco: ?

Allie Velasco wants to win. Something. Everyone in her family is a standout in some way and Allie is determined to make her mark.

When a prestigious school competition is announced, Allie knows this is her shot. There's just one problem - her biggest competition is her ex-best friend Sara.

Can Allie take top prize and win back a friend - or is she destined to lose it all?

Angela Cervantes deftly uses an appealing commercial voice to explore universal tween issues like making and keeping friends, dealing with family, and finding your place in the world.

display_description Born into a family of over-achievers, fifth-grader Allie Velasco has never finished first in anything, and lately things have been going badly: her science project is ruined by a well-meaning student, her former best friend is hanging out with another girl--but now she is determined to win the Trailblazer contest with a photographic presentation about her great grandfather, the first Congressional Medal of Honor winner from their town.
