Meet Mackenzie Blue, aka Zee

She has it all—smarts, talent, humor, and style. . . .

Is it enough to survive middle school?

Countdown to a 7th Grade Meltdown

1. Your BFF moves away.

2. Someone steals your diary and reveals your deepest secrets—to the entire class.

3. You have one chance to become a rock star and one chance to totally blow it. Guess what!? All three happened to me! School's a disaster already. Don't get me wrong—I love Brookdale Academy and I have a fabulous crew of friends. (At least, I think I do.) But, if I'm going to survive, I need all the help I can get!

"Well’s heroine is spunky and creative, an open–hearted everygirl with a love of words, art and music. Young readers will find much to inspire them in her story."
ALA Booklist
"This lighthearted series [is] sure to please girls all too aware of the impending approach of middle school."
Children's Literature - Jennie DeGenaro
Mackenzie Blue, nicknamed "Zee," confides in her diary. She is lonely and unhappy when her best friend moves to France. When Zee loses her diary, she is devastated. She is sure it was stolen when direct quotes from her diary appear on the white board in her classroom. Zee makes several mistakes in assuming the guilt of her two best friends at school. She goes about trying to find out if they are guilty in the wrong way. In addition, Zee has a crush on a boy in her school and tries to think of ways to have him notice her. Also, Zee is flattered when a popular girl in school appears to want to be her friend, but she finds the girl is not the person she appears. The author describes Zee's experience with her classmates. Zee tries out for a singing contest, hopeful of winning. Her music teacher and brother encourage her and help her prepare for the contest, but another girl wins first place. Zee is disappointed, however she is a good loser, and plans to try again next year. Girls who enjoy reading about girls their age will especially like this book. It captures the feelings and actions of girls between eight and twelve. Boys, too, may enjoy learning how girls think and react in certain situations. Parents will approve of the clean language, morals and ethics demonstrated throughout this book. Reviewer: Jennie DeGenaro

    This can't be her first book !!!!

    I received copy of this book from a friend and I thought it was great! The topics are waht you find in everyday life with young people. I really like that fact that it's not over the top, as far as things that our young people don't need any more exposure to. This book is just enough.. I hope there will be more. From what I have looked up about this young lady she has a bright future in front of her and I'd love to see more of her work in books to come. So talented this really can't be the first book she wrote, I'm blown away.

    Never assume

    This is a good book if you are looking for something that you just want to read for fun. I read it in the summer while I was at sleepaway camp and when I had a chance to read I would read it and I would bury my face in it.
