Duel / written by Jessixa Bagley ; illustrated by Aaron Bagley.

Bagley, Jessixa, (author.). Bagley, Aaron, (illustrator.).


"Lucy is a sixth grader who loves fantasy novels and is brand-new to middle school. GiGi is the undisputed queen bee of eighth grade (as well as everything else she does). They've only got one thing in common: fencing. Oh, and they're sisters--but they don't exactly get along. Ever since their dad died, it seems like they're always at each other's throats. When GiGi humiliates Lucy in the cafeteria on the first day of school, Lucy snaps and challenges GiGi to a duel. If GiGi wins, Lucy promises to stay out of GiGi's way; if Lucy wins, GiGi will stop teasing Lucy for good. But after their scene in the cafeteria, both girls are on thin ice with the principal and with their mom. Lucy will have to practice in secret, or she'll be in big trouble, and GiGi must behave perfectly or risk getting kicked off the fencing team. As the clock ticks down to the sisters' fencing bout, both sisters are determined to triumph. But will winning the duel mean losing even more of what makes their family whole?" -- Provided by publisher.
