When a new girl named Mailee moves into town, Audrey becomes fascinated with how down-to-earth, fun, and friendly she is to everyone. Audrey knows she wants to become friends with her, but is afraid to ask. To figure out what Mailee thinks of her, Audrey starts a slam book. The rules are simple. Everyone uses a number, not their name, when they're entering information about other people, and they have to do it alone. When they're done, they have to sneakily pass it on to the next person. When rumors start flying that Audrey was the one who made the slam book, she starts to worry that Mailee won't get the book or, worse, will think less of her. In the process of trying to get Mailee to like her, however, Audrey ignores her best friend, Carmen, who's been acting strange ever since her parents called a family meeting. Will Audrey manage to make friends with Mailee while still staying friends with Carmen? Why is Carmen acting so different? Will Audrey get caught for making the slam book? RUMOR HAS IT is a fun, fast book to read. The characters are pretty well-developed, and the plot moves along quickly enough to keep the reader's attention. Those who like realistic fiction and the other Candy Apple books will enjoy reading this one.

this productive novel tells how sometimes you want something so bad, you'd do something terrible to get it... Audrey Jones wants desperately to be bffs with the new girl, Mailee, but Audrey is not sure Mailee wants to be friends at all! So, Audrey daringly starts a slam book at her school. Slam books could really get Audrey in trouble, but it seems as though everything goes innocently at first, but then someone wrote something nasty about Audrey. Could it be Mailee...or Audrey's best friend for life?
