Rumors From the Boys' Room, by Rose Cooper, is about Sofia Becker and her blog. This year, though, she isn't just blogging about what she hears in the Girls' Bathroom, she is also blogging about what she sees and/or hears near the Boys' Bathroom. She also reports on conversations overheard in the hallways. The big news of the story is that there is an exchange student coming to their school. Sofia hears to teachers talking about it, so she blogs about it to tell the whole world (well, at least, the whole middle school). Unfortunately, though, Sofia states the wrong country from which the exchange student is coming from. Sofia and her best friend, Nona, are trying to get Nona and Lukas, the exchange student, together, and they are also trying to fend off the popular crowd, but it is not working so well. Mia, Sofia's bow-wearing archenemy, has attempted to steal Nona away from her. And during all this, things at Sofia's house aren't going that well, either. Her mom is always sleeping or complaining because she is pregnant, but Sofia states that her mom isn't the only one getting the heat from the mood swings. Will Sofia get Nona and Lukas together? Will the popular crowd back down? Will Sofia's mom ever have this baby so she stops having so many mood swings? You'll have to read and find out
I thought this book was pretty good! It was a short but entertaining read. It was also funny, and provided lots of interesting illustrations to go along with the Journal and Blog entries. This is a cute book, and if you're looking for a quick and easy read, this is the perfect book for you. I definitely would recommend this book to girls, because it is more of a girly book, so to speak. All in all, this was a good book!
