Gossip From the Girl's Room: A Blogtastic! Novel by Rose Cooper

Make sure you check for feet in the stalls before you gossip...

Delacourte Press published this book in hardcover in mid-January and sent me an ARC for review (thank you).  

This is a "tween" read and the main character is a Blogtastic Blogger who likes to post gossip she hears in the girl's room on her blog without identifying the students it concerns.  It's fun to do, she likes hearing the others talk about it and she's secure in the knowledge that they don't know who the anonymous blogger can be.

It's silly, light-hearted, and all fun, until she hears something that could hurt the most popular girl in her class.  It's cool to spy and pick up gossip, but is that the most important?

The lesson this story teaches is that "getting the dirt is not as important as who it hurts."

Written for young ones in the sixth to eighth grade, it's an enjoyable modern story that will have them giggling and reading to see what happens next.

Visit your local bookstore and grab yourself a copy.

Or you can enter the contest to win my ARC:  Leave a comment here on my blog and email me at info @ (take the spaces out) with your name and ADDRESS and tell me why you'd like to read it or gift it to someone.  I'll pick a winner in about a week.

Happy reading.
