Part graphic novel, part scrapbook and altogether original—New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Holm's Eighth Grade Is Making Me Sick is just right for fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Dork Diaries and Babymouse!
Ginny has big plans for eighth grade. She's going to try out for cheerleading, join Virtual Vampire Vixens, and maybe even fall in love. But middle school is more of a roller-coaster ride than Ginny could have ever predicted. Her family has just moved into a fancy new house when Ginny's stepdad loses his job. (Can worrying about money make you sick?). Ginny's big brother keeps getting into trouble. And there's a new baby on the way. (Living proof that Ginny's mom and stepdad are having sex. Just what she needs.) Filled with Post-its, journal entries, grocery lists, hand-drawn comic strips, report cards, IMs, notes, and more, Eighth Grade Is Making Me Sick is the sometimes poignant, often hilarious, always relatable look at a year in the life of one girl, told entirely through her stuff.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 5-8-In this follow-up to Middle School Is Worse Than Meatloaf (S & S, 2007), Ginny Davis starts eighth grade at Woodland Central Middle School the way she started seventh grade, with a "Big To-Do List." Her 10 new goals include "1. Try out for cheer" and "3. Fall in love." She also moves into a larger house with her mother, new stepfather, and brothers, Timmy and Henry. Mom, a lawyer, continues to communicate with notes on the refrigerator and the occasional text message. Grandpa, a strong influence in Ginny's life, continues to write, send money, and occasionally visit. He even learns to email. Things seem to be going well; even Henry appears to be on the straight and narrow. All of these observations are gleaned from colorful pages filled with the paraphernalia of busy lives-moving boxes, calendars, instant and text messages, bank statements, take-out menus, paint swatches, and even a discarded pregnancy test, indicating an impending half sibling. Ginny makes the cheer squad and starts the school year off successfully. There is the possibility of true love. But then, her stepfather loses his job, Henry starts acting up, and she suffers from a mysterious ailment. Ginny's voice is appealing. This story told in stuff is engaging, touching, hilarious, often relatable, and should be popular with all sorts of readers, including fans of graphic novels.-Brenda Kahn, Tenakill Middle School, Closter, NJα(c) Copyright 2011.
