a Silly Song!

There was a crooked man
And he walked a crooked mile.
He met a crooked lass and said— what else?
I like your style!

Janis Repka is Not Clueless!

originally Janis titled this book Counting Frog Feathers. her publisher, Penguin, concluded Too obscure. so the title became Aphrodite Figures it Out, then The Difference Between Hair Roots and Square Roots, then Wiz Kid and Twirl Girl. while THE CLUELESS GIRL'S GUIDE TO BEING A GENIUS does not rightly express Janis's regard for her characters, whom she would never call clueless, it has that commercial patina we now more than ever pin our hopes on.
the  hardcover ofJanis's debut The Stupendous Dodgeball Fiasco sells steadily; but only its place on several state reading lists precipitated the need for a softcover edition, to pub next year. 

We love Janis!
