(Amulet Books, Hardcover)
Libby's having a rough time. Her mother is dating Angel's father, the evilest girl in school, and Seth, her crush, barely notice she's alive. Plus, she just set her hair on fire in front of her whole chemistry class, which includes Seth. What's a girl to do? Libby decides to start writing in an online journal, setting it to private so that no one will learn her innermost thoughts. Now that Libby has somewhere to vent, life is getting better. Until her mom invites over Angel and her father for a "bonding" dinner. Then Angel posts Libby's blog pages all over school and Libby's life is a mess again.
The chapters in this book are interspersed with pages from Libby's blog. I loved this format because it was fun reading Libby's posts and, because of the "normal" chapters, you also get to hear the other characters talk. There's also some IMing throughout for extra fun. Libby is an absolutely lovable character and I fell in love with her the moment that she caught her hair on fire (which you learn about in her post called GIRL ON FIRE). It's such a fun hodge podge of high shool calamity and the ending is equally great - not too perfect. I recommend reading this if you're feeling down about your own embarrasing moment or if you're just looking for a fun read.
