Middle School Is Worse Than Meatloaf

Middle school is worse than meatloaf: a year told through stuff
Jennifer L. Holm, pictures by Elicia Castaldi, 2007.

Take a look at all this junk! You've got everything from newspaper clippings and shopping lists to journal entries and English papers. It all belongs in the life of Ginny who is just trying to survive 7th grade.

I would definitely recommend this book -- it is fun to see just how much someone's stuff can tell about them. It's a little bit like an I-Spy book in the sense that the longer you look at each page, the more you see. It must have been very interesting to write and illustrate. */*/*/*

I'm so sad we missed you this weekend!!! Matthew fell asleep and the poor guy was having such a rough time napping that I didn't want to wake him! And by the time you called, we were already in Fillmore. :( So sad! I hope everything is going well, though! I would love to see more pictures!
