Synopsis: Mia Fullerton has entered her freshman year at St. Hilary s with a goal: to lose her nickname Mia the Meek, and soar into a confident high school career. Unfortunately, her transformation is made harder by her English-teacher mom, bratty little brother, already popular nemesis, and new neighbor. Although she s prepared herself for the battle by reading Excruciatingly Shy: How to Defeat Public Fear and Become Popular, her freshman year remains a series of uphill battles. The week before school starts, Mia wakes up to discover new neighbors have moved in next door. Forced by her mother to take them her special chocolate chip cookies, Mia first encounters Tim the handsome yet seemingly arrogant oldest son of the family. Their relationship develops based on competition, from literature to the basketball court, and Mia s got her work cut out for her. School begins and Mia immediately meets with all sorts of (often humorous) challenges from having a locker right next to her arch-enemy Cassie, to being paired with Tim for science lab, to having her mom as her very own English teacher. Before she knows it, her best friend has nominated her for class president, and, what s worse, she s running against Cassie! Mia embraces her nomination when she learns that her crush, Jake Harris, has seconded it. After all, what better way to emerge from her shell? As the year goes on, Mia deals with all the things girls her age face. She becomes class president with the help of an improvised speech and unconventional catch phrase dates Jake Harris, helps lead her team in the Academic Quiz Bowl, and tries to balance her new friends with the old. In the end, Mia emerges a far different person than when she set out, though it may not be the person she had imagined that first day at St. Hilary.

Book Description Bancroft Press. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Mia the Meek, Eileen Boggess, This title is for ages 12+. Mia Fullerton has earned her nickname because of her timidity among her middle school classmates. Now, as high school begins, she is determined to change her image by following the instructions in a self-help book, and inadvertently agrees to run for freshman class president at St Hilary's. She wins over her classmates by telling them to vote for 'Mia the Meek, Queen of the Freaks'. Meanwhile, she is surprised by the attention that Jake, a boy she's had her eye on for years, is paying to her since she got rid of her glasses and braces. However, she keeps finding herself daydreaming of Tim, her cocky new neighbour. Mia dates Jake, plays one-on-one basketball with Tim, maintains her grades, argues with her parents, prepares for the Academic Bowl, coordinates class-president responsibilities, and suffers through having her mother as her English teacher. The story is also full of embarrassments including falling down in the school bathroom and setting the science lab on fire. Bookseller Inventory # B9781890862466
