Gertie is a spunky girl who is on a mission. Her mission? Show her mother - who abandoned her and her oil rig working father when Gertie was a baby - that she does not need a mother at all. How will Gertie do this? By becoming the greatest fifth grader in the world, and then marching right up her mother and telling her she doesn’t need her, of course.

With the help of her two best friends, Gertie launches into her mission, ready to tackle phase one, but a seat-stealing new girl Mary Sue Spivey quickly throws a wrench into Gertie's plan. How can Gertie become the best fifth grader and tell her mother that she never needed her with Mary Sue showing her up and stealing the spotlight? Gertie's sassy tenacity leads her as she aims to be the best.
