First, Martha's mom bans her from playing soccer, and Agatha and friends must get Martha back on the field. Then Agatha's brother, James, receives an email from a mysterious girl, Bella, and Agatha secretly responds for him. It's just one of those things that sisters have to do!
Agatha discovers Bella's love of spelling might hold the secret for getting Martha permission to play soccer again. Several forged emails--and a few spelling tests--later, will Martha play in the big game? And what will happen when the innocent Bella meets the real James?
The irresistible adventures of Agatha Parrot continue in this funny and unpredictable installment.

Review quote

"Fans of other early chapter-book heroines, such as Clementine, Judy Moody, and Jules Bloom, will find another kindred spirit in high-energy Agatha Parrot."

"The simple prose, lively illustrations, and upbeat plot combine to make this an appealing choice for newly independent readers. Agatha is distinctive, funny, and engaging."

"Agatha's silly antics and enthusiastic delivery should engage readers transitioning to chapter books."--Kirkus

"Should appeal to fans of Goofballs and Ivy and Bean."--Booklist
