Confessions of a So-called Middle Child

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Fans of Harriet the Spy and Mean Girls will cheer when they meet Charlie C. Cooper, reformed bully, gifted hacker, slightly misguided fashionista, and so-called middle child!

This debut tween novel stars the hilariously fresh Charlie Cooper as she tries to ditch her middle-child reputation and make cool friends at her new school in Los Angeles.

But being cool isn't as easy as it looks—especially when her dandruff-ridden psychologist tasks Charlie with finding the biggest loser in school and becoming her friend. In public.

As Charlie says, "Just kill me now, please."

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 24, 2013 – After being expelled for a laxative incident, middle sibling Charlie Cooper has spent the summer grounded, reading books in her bedroom and visiting a psychologist each week. As Charlie begins seventh grade at a new school, Dr. Scales has one final assignment, “to find the most bullied girl in your class and take her under your wing.” Finding her is easy—Marta Urloff is filthy, friendless, and mocked by everyone at her Los Angeles middle school. “She was a horror. You could see it from space,” thinks a despondent Charlie. “She looked like a homeless Disney princess.” With the support of her family, a spiritual makeover (hey, it’s L.A.), and a boost from Houdini (the Cooper family lives in his old mansion), Charlie might just overcome her destructive, attention-seeking habits once and for all. In her first book for children, adult author Lennon (Making It Up as I Go Along) offers a fast-moving story with a satirical edge. Although Charlie’s biting snark can be a bit much, her empathy and heart eventually shine through. Ages 8–12.
