New York : Random House, 2012
IL 5-8, RL 5.3
We all know that 8th grade is a terrible year. Probably the worst year of all the school years. But Ginny is not going to let that happen to her. She has really big plans. She will make 8th grade the best one ever. She is going out for cheerleading. She wants to join the Virtual Vixens. And she may just fall in love. Well, you just know that plans don't always work out. The family need to move because her stepdad has lost his job. Her mother is pregnant. He brother keeps getting into trouble. Told in a series of post-it notes, scrapbook entries, comics and pictures, this is Ginny's journey through 8th grade.
