If books could mate, this book would be the love child of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and The Popularity Papers. It is formatted as Sofia Becker's pre-blogging notebook, where she keeps track of gossip she overhearss, her thoughts on that gossip, as well as updates on other happenings in her life and around the school. It also has cute little doodles that, much like DoWK, often finish a sentence.

I like the blogging element of this story, because you get to see what Sofia considers blogging about and what she actually ends up blogging. Choosing to reveal gossip can lead to trouble so it's interesting to see the decisions she makes in terms of letting something slip or keeping it to herself. Also, a book like this would not be complete without some kind of parental embarrassment. This element adds humor, and makes me glad that I am no longer in middle school.

To sum up, this is an enjoyable story that is a perfect read-a-like to other series listed above. ( )

Sofia Becker eavesdrops on the most popular girls at school to find out information for her blog. She wants only the juiciest gossip so her blog will become the most famous one in school. She's also hoping it will raise her own popularity status.

There's only one problem...her blog's anonymous.

Her blog has three features: Students in the News, Teachers in the News, and Parents in the News. When she hears gossip, she can't help but post it - even if it might damage her friendships.

Will Sofia's blog make her a super-star or send her to social Siberia?

A cute tale for tween girls, very much like the DIARY OF A WIMPY KID series with cartoons and humor. The drawings are witty and make the diary an easy and fast read. ( )

Diary of a Wimpy Kid for girls!

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; read along to find out just what happens when class is not in session.

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.
