When Mya’s mother receives an emergency call, she quickly arranges to travel back to Myanmar to be with Mya’s grandmother. With her new responsibility to care for her younger sister, Mya seizes on the opportunity to justify to her parents that she is worthy of obtaining her desire to have her own cell phone. After all how can a committed future United Nations representative operate without this basic technology? Mya’s exuberant personality and passion about social activism will appeal to tweens navigating similar desires. The book also educates young readers about certain real global concerns.

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher through LibraryThing’s early reviewers program — thank you!

So, how awesome is Mya’s Strategy to Save the World? First of all, the voice it’s written in — pitch perfect and funny without being glib or too try-hard about it. Mya takes things Very Seriously, and she reminded me of when I was twelve and also took things Very Seriously.

This book is also full of activism, major issues that affect people around the world. It has a real social conscience, and I think it encourages readers to take action or think about the impact they’re having.

And, of course, the growing up stuff is perfect. First dates, friend issues, trying to balance friends and romantic interests, first periods, more responsibilities, and all of the embarrassment that can come with growing up.

This is a great book, and one that I look forward to recommending. ( )

12 year old Mya Parsons has a grand ambition : become a U. N. negotiator, bring the world together and win the Nobel Peace Prize. She and her best friend Cleo create “Kids for Social Justice” to start working toward world peace and life is moving according to plan when, suddenly, Cleo gets a cell phone and everything changes. Mya is on the outside as Cleo starts texting and hanging around with kids, and (gasp) DATING!

As if that isn't enough, Mya's mother has to return to Myanmar to deal with a family emergency. Mya has to help Dad and her little sister keep the family functioning while Mom's away; all the while running a campaign to prove that she too is responsible enough for a cell phone.

Written with a light, entertaining touch, this book is a good presentation of the drama, humor and confusion of the tween years. There are even recipes from Myanmar. As Mya would say, ama-ZING! ( )

Mya's Strategy to Save the World is a hilarious and heart warming story about a young girl trying to save the world while also trying to acquire a cell phone. Throughout the story Mya has to deal with her mother being away, taking care of her younger sister, and also dealing with the challenges that come with growing up and becoming a teenager.

Mya aspires to work for the UN and has started her own social justice club along with her best friend Cleo. This book takes real topics from around the world and adds them to the story which allows young readers to learn more about the social justice system and other problems happening in their environment.

Overall I would recommend this book to young readers who love to learn about the justice system and also love to have a good laugh. I would read this book again in a heartbeat. ( )

I literally laughed out loud a few good times, and I'm all for kids getting involved in social justice. But I guess this heroine's tone/attitude doesn't sit right with me in some places, even though I know it isn't meant to be taken too seriously. I have trouble getting into a story when I don't quite jibe with the lead.

I won't be finishing this one, but I'm encouraged by seeing more diverse books coming out for young readers, including contemporary fiction that tackles topics like human rights.
