Ada Lace Gets Famous (Ada Lace #6)


Author: Emily Calandrelli with Tamson Weston

Illustrator: Renée Kurilla

From Emily Calandrelli—Emmy-nominated host of Xploration Outer Space, host of Netflix’s Emily’s Wonder Lab, and graduate of MIT—comes the sixth novel in a fun illustrated chapter book series about an eight-year-old girl with a knack for science, math, and solving mysteries with technology.

When third grader and inventor extraordinaire Ada Lace learns her teachers are in dire need of new school supplies, she’s eager to lend a helping hand—but how? With a bake sale? A class carnival? Most ideas seem out of reach for a kid like her, until Tycho suggests Ada try her hand at posting informational videos. If she’s able to build up a big online viewership, she could easily raise funds for their school. And with Nina as her visionary director, Milton as her comedic cohost, and Ada as the scientist star, making fun videos will be a piece of cake!

Or so they think. What starts as an earnest try at making fun, science-based shorts ends up being a whole mess for Ada and the gang as they gain popularity and take on peer pressure, trolls, and tests of their friendships. With her rising internet stardom, will Ada be able to stay true to herself?
