A Delightful, One-of-a-Kind Read! This unique and poignant book uses images of all kinds of "stuff" to chronicle one girl's difficult school year. Ginny has big plans for seventh grade, but everything seems to be going wrong. She's dealing with a brand-new stepfather and a troublemaking brother — and she just lost the lead role in The Nutcracker to her ex-BFF. From her stint in detention (for throwing frogs in class) to her disastrous 13th birthday party, Ginny's life is revealed through instant messages, newspaper clippings, school assignments, notes, to-do lists, recipes, cartoons, and more everyday items, all pieced together in colorful collages.
Two-time Newbery Honor winner Jennifer L. Holm and multimedia artist Elicia Castaldi used real experiences and things they saved from their own middle-school years to perfectly capture seventh-grade life!
