It's Diary of a Wimpy Kid for girls! Find out just what happens when class is not in session in this first book in the BLOGTASTIC! series.

Gossip from the Girls’ Room fills readers in on all there is to learn about middle school life at Middlebrooke, where Sofia has her very own blog and discusses all the juicy gossip that comes out of the Girls’ room.
In Sofia's words . . .

Mia St. Claire is only the most popular girl in all of Middlebrooke Middle School. For three very obvious reasons:

1. She's very rich.
2. She has tons of money.
3. She can buy anything and everything she wants. And she does.

I'm sure people like her for other reasons too, but none of those reasons are obvious enough for me to really know. Or care about, for that matter.

Editorial Reviews

"Diary of a Wimpy Kid meets Harriet the Spy." - Keeper of all Wisdom (blog)"Rose Cooper brings Sofia to life in her debut book...Through her witty words and sketches, Cooper is able to take a serious concept, bullying and name-calling, and show readers why it’s a bad idea." - GirlsLife.com"I really enjoyed reading this book...It's totally BLOGTASTIC!" - National Geographic Kids"Written as a journal with illustrations and asides, this humorous take on trying to fit in will find wide appeal. Hand this to female fans of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, and they'll soon start anticipating Sophia's next adventure." - Booklist"Cooper keely captures Sofia's quintessential preteen voice: spunky and full of a blustering bravado meant to mask her vulnerability. Sofia's experiences, recorded in faux-hand printing on lined paper, and the many hilarious sketches scattered throughout the journal will garner groans and laughs from readers." - Kirkus Reviews"The tone here is frothy and middle-school histrionic, making Sofia a wonderfully entertaining voice...Cooper’s black-and-white sketches add additional comic appeal; particularly amusing are the portraits, composed with big-eyed manga flair and a caricature-esque attention to defining details." - The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"What a very clever book! . . . Girls reading this book will truly understand what Sophia is going through. The writing is interesting, flows well, has humor and heartbreak, and is such a perfect book for a girl. . . . Perfect for a reluctant reader." --Children's Literature
