In this book Sofia is a blogtastic middle schooler who tries to use her blog as a way to ease her way up the all-important popularity scale. The middle schooler language is dead-on which is no easy task, let me tell you. And, both my fifth grade daughter and I laughed our way through this charming tale of secrets, deception, and stinky bathroom stalls.
The book is written as if it's a secret journal--the blog behind the blog--where the whole ugly truth can be written. It's full of the most charming illustrations that I've ever seen. And, Rose did the illustrations, too. Take a look:
My daughter and I give GOSSIP FROM THE GIRLS ROOM an enthusiastic double thumbs up.
