Candy Apple books . . . just for you. Sweet. Fresh. Fun. Take a bite!

Jenna Sampson, perfectly normal seventh grader and editor of the school newspaper, is mortified. Her parents are opening a super-embarrassing juice bar at the mall. Jenna has to work there . . . and wear a ridiculous uniform. She's pretty sure her life can't get worse, until she finds out that the school paper might shut down.

But the gossip Jenna overhears from the juice bar is totally newsworthy, which gives her a great idea. A gossip column could be a huge hit and save the paper --- or cause a ton of trouble!

Although seventh grader Jenna Sampson is editor of the school paper, she couldn't feel further away from being in the know of popular topics, interests, and gossip in her school. Her parents are opening a juice bar in the middle of the mall, and not only does Jenna hate the mall, but she doesn't even like juice. So, now that her parents are forcing her to work there three days a week (and wear a pineapple hat -- no kidding), Jenna is terrified that her nonexistent popularity could go further into the negative. That is, if anyone notices she's there. As if that wasn't bad enough, Jenna has just found out that her beloved paper might be cut from the curriculum, along with a bunch of other activities. She writes a front page article about it, begging other students to rise up and fight the budget cuts, but she's horrified to find that no one even reads the paper that she puts so much work into. Jenna is going to have to find some way to get the other students to take notice. Lucky for her, she seems to overhear a lot of gossip at the counter of the food court. Could a gossip column work to save the school paper? Even though Jenna comes off as a highly eccentric heroine (sometimes distractingly so), one can appreciate her struggle as she weighs moral choices against accomplishing a worthy, selfless end.

It was a decent book. I enjoyed it... You can kind of predict what's going to happen at the end though. I would read this book again.

This book had a pretty cool lesson in it. The characters had real feelings, but it wasn't something I would partically like so much. But it was still a interesting book.
