Overview

Computer whiz Erin Swift is ready to start eighth grade. The Year of Humiliating Events (aka seventh grade) is behind her and she's ready to rule the school. But eighth grade comes with its own set of problems for Erin to navigate, including her first boyfriend, her first breakup, and the fact that her mom has been treating her more like an eight-year-old than an eighth grader. Even worse, there's a new girl at Molly Brown Middle School who is determined to remake Erin in her bad-girl image, and former crush Mark "Cute Boy" Sacks has been acting strange lately.

But as Erin's school year once against hurdles toward disaster, a personal tragedy forces her to realize that things, and people, aren't always as bad as they seem. Can she save what's left of eighth grade before it's too late?

Erin Swift is sure that the eighth grade will be a far better experience than her last school year. In seventh grade - the Year of Humiliating Events (or YOHE as she likes to refer to it) - Erin's private blog became a very public one. Everyone at Molly Brown Middle School (and most of the high school students) read every humiliating detail. This year will be different. After all, if she survived her YOHE, she can survive anything, right? Erin is surrounded by good friends: Jilly, Rosie, Carla, and Mr. F., the school janitor and family friend. She also has her good friend, Mark, her former crush who is still cute but still just a friend. And, he has the girlfriend to prove it. This year Erin gets a new locker partner. Reede Harper isn't like any of Erin's other friends. She wears a lot of makeup, seems to know more about people than they know about themselves, and is full of mystery about herself. Oh, and she smokes, which makes her just the kind of girl that Erin would never hang out with. So, why is she so drawn to her? As if it wasn't hard enough to deal with the social politics of middle school, Erin's mother still treats her like she's a child. She has to stay at home while her friends get to go to concerts and other fun events. And, she's not allowed to date, which makes it tricky since she has started seeing a boy from the ninth grade. There is also the hunky high school Junior that has been hanging out with Erin's older brother. And Mark always seems to be somewhere in the picture. But, they're just friends. Right? As Erin struggles to gain a little more independence and control over her life, she finds herself struggling to make the right decisions and teetering dangerously close to another YOHE. The sequel to CLICK HERE (TO FIND OUT HOW I SURVIVED SEVENTH GRADE), author Denise Vega has written a book that is just as enjoyable even if you didn't read the first book. The story will have you laughing, and crying, right along with the characters.

This book is a must read. It was a little cofusing. The book was appropriate for fifth grade and up because of Erins changes in her life. There were alot of surprises. This is a great book but read the first one or it will be even more confusing. I cant wait till the next book i think it will be the best one. Denise vega is awesome! Great @ the end.

Erin Swift starts the eighth grade with more confidence and friends than last year. But there are other things that she needs to worry about now. When will she get her period? What if her former crush, Mark, has a crush on her this time? Trying to move on to bigger and better things, she meets a high school boy and soon they are going out. Leaving her old life of unpopularity, Erin decides to go to a high school party with the new girl, Reede, where she finds out that maybe being a middle school late bloomer is better than being a high school early bloomer. Tempted by short skirts and sneaking out, can Erin keep her old friends and maybe receive forgiveness along the way? Access Denied was simple to understand and complicated at all the right times ("Who will she choose?" "Will she do the right thing?"). This book is a great coming of age story that takes all the usual ones to the next level. It teaches forgiveness, trust, and how to deal with loss. It even teaches how to have a good time with your friends while still being under control! In the simplest form: Erin's story is unforgettable. The writing is great, the scenes are great, the characters are great, and the storyline is terrific! The cover is inviting and completely sums up the story without saying a word (except the title :). I read it in two sit-downs and still wanted more! I hope that in the future, there will be a third book of Erin Swift's life of trying to survive public school. Contains: some kissing or 'making out' the reference 'get a room' used underage drinking
