Rumors From the Boys Room : A Blogtastic Novel by Rose Cooper

The author, Rose Cooper, has mangaged to get inside a middle school girl's head and help us understand a little of what goes on in there. Sophia spies (overhears, really) different conversations around the school and blogs about what she hears. She's an anonymous blogger but there is a teacher who is in on it and keeps Sophia in line. Sophia is dealing with a pregnant mom (who also teaches at the schoool), a best friend liking a boy, liking a boy herself, a gross boy, a mean girl, etc.

The writing is extremely funny. The illustrations (by the author) are adorably charming. Recommended for girls in grades 4 and up and for fans of the Wimpy Kid and Ellie McDoodle books. Read as an ebook arc courtesy of Random House Children's Books via Netgalley.
