Paulina, Miko, Tally, and Ivy are four extraordinarily different seventh-graders. Paulina is 100% Type A. Miko is a fashionista. Tally is a theater queen. And Ivy - well, Ivy's the new girl at school. The four girls get tossed together to create a school magazine - by girls, for girls - in a competition to get funding for a new school program. But it seems like they'll never agree on anything. And just when they begin to make headway, their biggest rival - the athletes - threatens their progress. As the four girls try to complete the first issue of their magazine, and create a corresponding blog, they start to wonder if they can get past their labels and give all the girls in school a way to speak up.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Enid Portnoy
Seventh grade is a lot more stressful than it appears to the narrator of this book. Paulina, a seventh grader, comes up with an original idea for a magazine to enter a student competition for a Curriculum Education Project, just for Middle School girls. Paulina is teamed with three other girls to create the first issue of the magazine. Initially, she feels stressed to learn she must work with others rather than being on her own. To make matters worse, the new girl, Ivy was added to Paulina's team. As the team members discuss and debate how to shape the magazine, dialogue becomes more frequent in the book. Kimmel creates believable teenagers who are very involved in a variety of activities but with very strong preferences about everything and everyone. How can they ever agree, even on the basic format, or the title for their magazine? Paulina worries when she notices the team is acting like four strangers. To add to the problem, Paulina has to deal with a lively younger brother, learn to cook dinners for him and for herself when her mother is at work, and also answer emails from her team, as well as others in the competition who begin to sound less friendly each day. The new girl, Ivy seems to have some good ideas and sides with Paulina. Maybe this can turn out to be the start of a new friendship for Paulina. As the weeks pass, the friction between all the competitors provides enough conflict to keep the readers' attention and sympathies. Paulina's brother adds a humorous touch to many moments and helps to bring her back to reality. Paulina and her team are finally satisfied with the results of the competition. Paulina realizes how important it is to be determined and also flexible when working with others. Cody has written another winning book for middle school students who will easily identify with the characters and variety of settings such as the Malls and the school cafeteria, with familiar activities and classrooms, as well as family privacy and responsibilities. Kimmel's chapters move along at a lively pace as the competition draws to its final stage. The characters come alive as they talk about Internet messages, texting, and problems with balancing school and home life. The book is easy to read and will be enjoyed by preteen and teenagers alike.

    Awesome book that I totally recommend!

    This is a great book about four girls named Paulina, Tally, Miko, and Ivy. Paulina is really smart and likes school, Tally likes to act, Miko is a snooty girl who can be kind of mean, and Ivy is the new girl.
    They are put together in a group to make a magazine for a school competition but they have one problem, they are all totally different and they cannot agree on anything. Can they get along to finish the project and possibly win? Read this book to find out!
    I think this is a great book for girls ages 9 -12.
