In Denver, Robin (a.ka. Bird) is in with the cool clique. They wear the same clothes, talk the same way, and pick on the same girls. But when her Mom hears about a cruel prank against a less popular girl, she isnt going to tolerate the Queen Bee behavior. Within 24 hours, she pulls up stakes and moves them both to Prairie Dog, Oklahoma. Bird is positively furious, and shes going get revenge on her hippy artist mother. In fact, revenge is the only thing keeping her going in the remote town. How shes going to get it, though, shes not sure yet.
When she goes to register at the local middle school, shes mistaken for the interim school principal. Who is Bird to correct the mistake when a prank like this will really get payback on her mom? Though she wont be able to pull this off forever, Birds determined to make her mark on the middle school before shes found out. But life in the principals chair is going to give her quite an unexpected change in perspective.

Who knew that pulling a prank could lead you to sit in the principal's chair? That's right, the chair that faces the good and mostly bad students. For Robin, or Bird, as everyone else calls her, it may have been the best thing that could have happened to her.
It all began when Bird's mother had decided that it was time for them to move again, so Bird could live a different life. This decision only happened because Bird and her friends pulled a prank on an unpopular girl.
Before she knows it, Bird and her mom are off, driving to Prairie Dog, Oklahoma. For her mom, this means a fresh start for both of them. For Bird, it means a new school with no friends in a small, unknown town. Who knew her once lenient mother could ruin her life.
Everything changed when Bird walked into the office. Oddly enough, the secretary thought Bird was the temporary principal. Well, only because Bird shares the same name with the real temporary principal who was supposed to come in on Wednesday, not Monday, and Bird was dressed in a work suit, but only to make her mother mad. So now Bird is the new principal, but only for two days, which isn't all bad since they do have the most power. So Bird decides to make the best of the two days and she begins to make big changes. She even helps out an unpopular girl, who weirdly reminds her of the girl she pulled the prank on. Turns out this moving thing may not be so bad for Bird, after all. But what happens when her cover gets blown?
CONFESSIONS FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S CHAIR is a wickedly funny, extremely unusual, coming-of-age story. Although a little unrealistic, Anna Myers takes on a unique plot and makes it her own. Before you know it, Bird learns a very valuable lesson that she herself, and even the readers, needed to know. This is the perfect laugh-out-loud read that will keep your attention until the very end.
This book is fun, and I was always anxious about what would come next. Anna Myers is a very good author with a good imangination if she can write books like this! What a great idea.
This is my favorite book ever! I highly recommend it.
