Review : The Dirt Diary

The Dirt Diary
Anna Staniszewski
 Sourcebooks Jabberwocky
From Goodreads: WANTED: Maid for the most popular kids in 8th grade.

Cleaning up after the in-crowd gets Rachel all the best dirt.

Rachel can't believe she has to give up her Saturdays to scrubbing other people's toilets. So. Gross. But she kinda, sorta stole $287.22 from her college fund that she's got to pay back ASAP or her mom will ground her for life. Which is even worse than working for her mother's new cleaning business. Maybe. After all, becoming a maid is definitely not going to help her already loserish reputation.

But Rachel picks up more than smell socks on the job. As maid to some of the most popular kids in school, Rachel suddenly has all the dirt on the 8th grade in-crowd. Her formerly boring diary is now filled with juicy secrets. And when her crush offers to pay her to spy on his girlfriend, Rachel has to decide if she's willing to get her hands dirty....
My Review:  I want to thank Netgalley and the publisher for a copy of this book for my honest review
 I really enjoyed this book. This book deals with being an outsider to the cool kids. Crushes. Family Issues. This book is a great read for anyone with those problems. We all had thoese problems in 8Th grade. Delightful tale and Rachel is such a great character. She seems to leap off the pages and you are soon invested in her life. You want to help and root for her. Wether it is her baking skills, her struggles with a mother and father that just separated, or her crush and his evil girlfriend, you do want everything to work for her, and help her overcome the issues.
   Anna Staniszewski writting is wonderfully descriptive and flows so well you will finish this book and want more. I know I do. First book the trilogy and I am starting the second book soon. I was interested in the description but I am finishing the series for the love of the story.
