Has this ever happened to you?  You begin to take a quiz and everything on the page looks scary?  When Frankie has to take a Math quiz, the problems begin to frighten him.  He turns the number 3 into a vampire bat. After erasing part of number 8, it becomes a Cyclops.  When the time come to turn in his test, he has no answers filled in!  But Mrs. Gordon gives him another chance.  Instead of using the weekend to study, Frankieís family has him shopping, cooking, and exercising.  What are they thinking?  What will happen when Frankie goes back to school on Monday?  Will Math win or will Frankie conquer his fears?  (Pennsylvania Young Readerís Choice Awards Program Booktalks 2012-2013)
