Grade 5-8–In this installment, the girls stay busy perfecting their acts for the junior high talent show and keeping a local movie house from closing. Meanwhile, there's still time for soccer, family, instant messaging, and doing the right thing. Unlike the previous books, this one seems flat and reads more like a television script than a full-bodied story. Bryant continues to use current slang and cultural icons that will make readers feel connected to the events, but they will quickly date the book. Drawings, various fonts, lists, blog entries, and e-mails break up the text and draw readers into the story. The author continues to promote positive values such as don't take advantage of people, tell the truth, respect yourself, and be an individual, and to depict adults who are active in the lives of the main characters. An interesting book filled with positive, realistic role models for today's girls is a great idea, but this one falls a little short of that goal. It will appeal to fans of the previous titles, but it doesn't stand on its own.–Catherine Callegari, San Antonio Public Library, TX
