Judy Moody is in a mood. Not a good mood. And definitely NOT a math mood. The substitute teacher in Class 3T thinks Judy's math skills need improving. So Judy has to start meeting with a math tutor. Does this mean flash cards? Does this mean baby games? Does this mean school on weekends? But when Judy meets her tutor — a sick-awesome college student with an uber-funky sense of style — and gets a glimpse of college life, Judy's bad math-i-tude turns into a radical glad-i-tude. Pretty soon, Judy's not only acing her math class; she's owning it. Time to say good-bye to Judy Moody, old skool third-grader, and say hello to Miss College!

I promise.” Bethany Wigmore called after them, “Hit me up later!” On the way to lunch, they

Chloe put her finger to her lips. “In third grade, you’re not allowed to talk when the teacher is talking either,” Judy whispered. “Same-same!” The teacher, Mr. Professor-Who-Likes-Psycho-Paintings, was yakking on forever about shadows in every picture. Shadows this and shadows that. Shadows here and shadows there. Shadows seemed to be very-way-important in art. When the slide show and the yakking were over, everybody got to make paintings of their own. (Finally!)
She poked lots of holes for Band-Aid holes. Then she smeared it with paint and pressed it over and over nine times on one big piece of paper in lots of different neon-bright colors. “My pop art really pops!” Judy told Chloe. “You did that?” said Chloe. “It looks fantastic! I mean it.” Chloe still had not painted one single polka dot. Not even a cat hair. “Aren’t you done yet?” Judy asked. “You are going to get an S for Slow or a T for Turtle in this class.” Chloe laughed. “Okay, let’s go. I
would need a tutor and we would get to go to college, too.” “Like Judy,” said Frank. “You mean you messed up on purpose?” Judy asked. “Yeah, we just thought it up — during morning recess,” said Frank. “Professor Todd!” said Judy. “I think I should get all the math candy, since I’m the only one who took the test for serious.
