About the Author
Lisa Ann Scott is a former TV news anchor who now enjoys making up stories instead of sticking to the facts. She also works as a voice actor in upstate New York, where she lives with her husband, two kids, dog, cats, and koi fish. This is her first middle grade novel.
"[School of Charm] deals with universal themes such as emotional isolation, intergenerational conflict, self-knowledge, and grief. Simply written and engaging, the narrative gathers steam as it travels along to its satisfying conclusion."--Booklist
"The process of grieving and change is handled realistically in this satisfying novel."--School Library Journal
"...Chip's growth is moving and relatable. The author also makes good use of her 1970s setting, incorporating Elvis's death and touching on racial tensions (one of Chip's fellow students at Miss Vernie's becomes the first black girl to enter the pageant) to give the story a strong sense of place."--Publishers Weekly
