About the Author:

James Patterson has had more New York Times bestsellers than any other writer, ever, according to Guinness World Records. Since his first novel won the Edgar Award in 1977 James Patterson's books have sold more than 300 million copies. He is the author of the Alex Cross novels, the most popular detective series of the past twenty-five years, including Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider. He writes full-time and lives in Florida with his family.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 7 Up—Patterson's latest is a hilarious and at times heartbreaking peek into the life and diary of high school student Margaret Clark (aka Cuckoo). Two months ago, Margaret's mother took off, sending Margaret to the "nut house" for a 10-day observation. Now she is back in the nut house that is high school. Her merry band of misfit friends known as the "freak show" (each of whom has his or her own self-appointed nickname); her foster mother, Ms. Morris; and the act of writing it all down in her diary are the only things keeping her afloat. Lauren Fortgang slips easily into the role of Margaret, using her vocal skills to make every entry in her diary feel like a true confession via pitch, inflection, and volume. When Margaret must confront a painful loss in her life, Fortgang softens her tone and almost whispers her words, and when she is elated for the success of a student rally she and her friends have put together, Fortgang heightens her pitch and turns up the volume. Fans of Rachel Russell's "Dork Diaries" series who are ready for a more mature story will embrace Margaret and all of the characters in her life.—Shari Fesko, Southfield Public Library, MI
