From w on, call me Oklahoma! nine-year-old Paige Turner anunces on the first day of fourth grade. She is determined that this year she will be different: someone gutsy--brave eugh to stand up to her tormentor, class bully Viveca Frye. It takes a lot of work for Paige to bring out her inner Oklahoma, but she's helped along the way by her best friend, her sympathetic teacher, her bratty cousin, and some hilarious but inspiring events at home and at school. Paige does manage to overcome most of her fears, and in the process she learns that a true friend offers all the courage she needs.
