Middle School is Worse Than Meatloaf by Jennifer L. Holm, pictures by Elicia Castaldi

Reviewed by Ms. Pierce at Tesago
This hilarious book tells the story of Ginny's year in seventh grade. Lots of crazy things happen: Ginny accidently dyes her hair pink, and oops - gets sent to detention for throwing FROGS in class! This book is funny and interesting and fun, but the coolest part of the book is that it isn't told in the regular way with chapters and paragraphs, it's told through Ginny's "stuff." Stuff like report cards, to-do lists, journal entries, newspaper clippings, and notes from friends. The author (the same awesome author who wrote the Babymouse books) and illustrator tell the story of Ginny's seventh grade year in a totally new and creative way. It's a perfect pick for fans of graphic novels, neat artwork and funny stories - check it out!

I LOVED this book. It was so good I started and finished it in one day. I highly recommend it to any girl going into middle school.
