EXCITING Book News . . .

Julie Peterson of the excellent blog, Booking Mama, just posted THIS REVIEW of HOW TO SURVIVE MIDDLE SCHOOL.

Here's a peek: "Ms. Gephart is definitely a force to be reckoned with in middle grade fiction. She has the great ability to tell a good story while also making the reader laugh -- it's a great combination of fun! I also love that her books appeal to both boys and girls and that they have wonderful messages!"

Julie is a fellow Penn Stater and book lover and her review was so wonderful it made me want to cry. Thank you, Julie!

As if that weren't enough, there's THIS REVIEW from the Bulletin for the Center for Children's Books.

Here's a peek: "There are enough laughs, tears, and additional contributions from a camera-loving hamster here to make this one appeal to Diary of a Wimpy Kid fans."

And to top it all off, my editor just let me know HOW TO SURVIVE MIDDLE SCHOOL went into its THIRD printing.
