Sometimes it pays to be a hoarder ...

It's bookday for EIGHTH GRADE IS MAKING ME SICK!


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. 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.

This book was illustrated by the AMAZING Elicia Castaldi:


And here's a behind-the-scenes look at how she did it:
