Middle School Is Worse Than Meatloaf by Jennifer Holm

4 stars

Ginny describes her seventh grade year - her first boyfriend, her best friend's betrayal, her brother's arrest, and her mom's remarriage, all through her "stuff."  What kind of stuff?  Guidance counselor reports, notes she's written, report cards, etc.  This book is a bit like reality TV.  It's almost a guilty pleasure because you feel as if you are peeking or watching a person's life unfold.  I loved this book b/c it was a quick read, kept my interest, and gave a realistic view of what it's like to be a 7th grade girl whose life is not perfect!
