Nerd Girls : The Rise of the Dorkasaurus by Alan Lawrence Sitomer
Tired of being bullied by the popular girls, three girls team up to try to win the school talent show and end the reign of bullies always winning. Alice, aka Allergy Alice, Barbara aka Beanpole and Maureen aka Mo (the fat girl) find the true meaning of friendship as they nearly become convinced they are losers for ever.
For most of this book I was reading with a smile on my face and laughed out loud in many spots. When Alice's tragic background came to light I had tears in my eyes. Sitomer sure knows how to twist a story. Recommended for grades 6 and up and all middle school girls who have ever been bullied.
Read as an ebook arc courtesy of Simon and Schuster via Netgalley. Nerd Girls : The Rise of the Dorkasaurus will be available July 5, 2011.
