    Nerds and bullies. Pranks and slam books. Just another day in ei

    Nerds and bullies. Pranks and slam books. Just another day in eighth grade. Maureen (Mo) knows she’s a nerd. She describes her friends, Barbara (Bean Pole) and Alice (Q), and herself as quirky, do-well-in-school, socially awkward, and get laughed at by other kids. On the outside, she’s loud and opinionated. On the inside, she’s insecure and dealing with not only the bullies at school but her divorced mom who is now re-dating her re-divorced father. Yeah, figure that one out.
    Author Alan Lawrence Sitomer’s MG/Tween novel, NERD GIRLS, A CATASTROPHE OF NERDISH PROPORTIONS is a story of friendships, family, and consequences. From locking the Nerd Girls in the booby-trapped art room to booby-trapped cookies, the Three Pees (Pretty, Popular, Perfect Girls), Kiki, Brittany, and Sofes cause trouble. The Nerds plan revenge. Finally, the principal has had enough. He gives them one way they can get out of the punishment they deserve. I don’t want to spoil the fun, so I’m saying no more, except that I laughed. I cried. And I remembered my junior high days, the slam books especially.
    I think NERD GIRLS will appeal to middle school students, especially girls, that may be going through similar challenges at school and/or at home. The author has captured those in-between years when life is a drama and every event a catastrophe. Every middle school library should have a copy of this novel. Of course you’ll want a copy for your personal library, too. The author provided me with a copy of the book for our Good Reads discussion group.
