After a tumultuous first semester, Mimi Schulman thinks she’s ready to give social climbing a rest and settle into the groove of New York’s wacky Baldwin School. She’s eager to start over with her friends, reconnect with her dad, and make headway with Max Roth—the hottest guy in tenth grade.

But when an assignment for the school paper turns scandalous and spirals out of control, Mimi finds little time to enjoy her new and improved existence. Instead, she embarks on a roller coaster ride through the underbelly of the New York art world, from the VIP lounge of a shady nightclub to a private Caribbean island populated with washed-up TV stars and fifteen-second celebrities. As answers keep slipping through her fingers, Mimi begins to wonder if she’ll ever manage to pin down the story and get on with her life. And if so, will her life still be there?

All Q, No A is a touching comedy that will appeal to anyone who knows what it’s like have more questions than answers. Fans of Mimi Schulman beware! This book will keep you screaming with laughter long after you’ve turned the last page.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good This book was fairly good, not as good as the first but still enjoyable. It had a different tone than the first book and seemed to be geared toward a different audience. But I am still planning on reading the third and would still recommend the series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Courtesy of If you haven't met Mimi Schulman, who's tumultuous first semester at the alternative Baldwin School in New York City was chronicled with hilarious results in THE RISE AND FALL OF A 10TH-GRADE SOCIAL CLIMBER, don't despair. Miri, and her up-and-down life, her crazy friends, her strange classmates, and her sharp wit and sense of humor are back in ALL Q, NO A: MORE TALES OF A 10TH-GRADE SOCIAL CLIMBER. The Baldwin School is strapped for cash, and the school's paper, Bugle, is in serious jeopardy. Mimi is already feeling down and out, since both the editor (whose own father was just indicted for money laundering) and the soon-to-be-editor haven't cared for her past articles. But Serge Ziff, father of uber-cool senior Nikola, has just donated a large amount to the school. If Ulla Lippman has anything to say about it, a big chunk of that money will be aimed towards the Bugle. To do that, they need a spread that will outdo anything that's ever come before it. And the assignment of a lifetime goes to--you guessed it--Mimi. The last thing Mimi wants is to be in the middle of a huge story, stirring things up again at Baldwin like she did during her first semester. She's vowed to not try so hard to be popular, to err on the side of caution in her social-climbing ways. What she wants most this year is to get the attention of the hottest sophomore guy, Max Roth. It doesn't look like that's going to happen, though, especially when she starts doing research for the big article on Serge Ziff and his donation to the school. Her visits to Ziff Projects for some background information don't turn out so well, and the more she digs, the more she realizes she's not coming up with a brilliant, glowing article on the school's new benefactor so much as a glaring expose on one of the city's biggest names. As a scandal boils closer to the surface, Mimi once again finds herself in the middle of school politics, personality clashes, and a couple of hotties she doesn't know what to do with. ALL Q, NO A: MORE TALES OF A 10TH-GRADE SOCIAL CLIMBER is a laugh-out-loud, surprisingly indulgent read. Once you get started on the continued life and times of Mimi Schulman, you won't be able to stop until you turn the last page. A funny, engaging read, this is one you don't want to miss.
