"Out of all the people in the world, why do I have to be the freak who went to school on the very first day of the year with a pair of PANTIES stuck by static cling to the leg of my pants?!!!" Seventh grade was supposed to be Alli's breakout year, only her big debut ends up being a big disaster. Then queen bee Rachel Delaney takes Alli under her wing, and Alli finds herself in the inner circle of seventh-grade cool. But the inner circle is nothing like Alli expected, and ugliness lurks behind the prettiest faces. Can Alli figure out where she fits in, or will she get caught up in the glamour of running with the in crowd?

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 15, 2005 – Ever since a severe ear infection caused Alli to miss two months of sixth grade, she's felt like a "social nobody." Seventh grade looks like it may be a struggle, too: on the first day, static caused her mother's underwear to cling to the inside of Alli's pant leg. No wonder she's surprised—and excited—when she starts getting attention from popular Rachel. The book unfolds through Alli's journal entries, with instant message sessions and e-mails scattered throughout, and readers may have a hard time believing that a seventh-grader would write so copiously. However, Myracle (ttyl) has an obvious grasp of the age group, and readers are sure to understand Alli's desire to be popular and her frustration at her friends for feeling ditched. They'll also recognize the range of cruel behavior that can occur, even between friends. (In one scene, Alli's supposedly best friend, Kathy, tells a new student about how Alli got fat when she was sick; in another, Rachel convinces the class outcast to shave his eyebrows, telling him that it will be "hilarious.") Though the trajectory here is mostly predictable, Alli's final insights about Kathy make for a unique twist. Ages 9-up.

Customer Reviews

Great book!

I loved this book from the first page to the last page, it kept me on the edge of my seat with hilarity and emotions. This is a great book for anybody who is looking for a funny book. It also teaches you about friends and just because you have been friends with someone for a long time, doesn't mean you have to stay friends with them.

One of my favorite books!
