Noah, Nadia, Ethan and Julian each have a story to tell about how they became friends: Noah was (the accidental) best man at the wedding of Ethan's grandmother and Nadia's grandfather; Nadia saved a nest of baby turtles; Ethan recounts how he could not let Julian face disaster alone. And Julian? He valued something important in himself and saw it in the other three: kindness and the ability to enjoy the journey as much as the destination. So between the pages of Alice's "Adventures in Wonderland" he sent the others an invitation to afternoon tea...which is where you'll find them every Saturday.

Publishers Weekly, 1996-07-22 Glowing with humor and dusted with magic, this contemporary novel explores the ties that bind the four members of a championship academic quiz-bowl team. Sixth-grade teacher/coach Mrs. Olinski, teaching for the first time since becoming paraplegic, proudly observes her students' victories from the confines of a wheelchair. She is not sure what propelled her to choose the members of her team, nor does she fully comprehend the secret of their success in repeatedly beating older, more sophisticated competitors. Readers will be equally mystified until the backgrounds of the foursome (who call themselves The Souls) unfold during a series of first-person narratives that reveal the links between the students' private lives. Newbery Medalist Konigsburg (From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler) orchestrates a stunning quartet of harmoniously blended voices. She expresses the individual struggles of each of her characters while showing how they unite to reach a common goal. Wrought with deep compassion and a keen sense of balance, her imaginative novel affirms the existence of small miracles in everyday life. Ages 8-12. (Sept.)
