Fall Reading 2015 Pippa Morgan's Diary


Oh no! Pippa's Best friend Rachel has moved to the wilds of Scotland, where there is not even a cell signal or a way for them to video chat. What will Pippa do? Be the loneliest girl on the planet, of course. But then there is a chance for some companionship when her teacher has a popular girl named Catie sit with Pippa and do a class project. Before she realizes what she has done, Pippa blurts out a white lie that gets Catie's attention and then doesn't know how to tell the truth. It snowballs from there, with more and more people finding out and the stakes getting higher. How can she ever tell the truth without totally embarrassing herself and losing her new friends forever?

Fans of other diary/journal style stories such as Dork Diaries and Dear Dumb Diary will enjoy the outrageous situations that Pippa gets herself into as she tries to make new friends and keep everyone from finding out her lie. For readers who are not quite ready to tackle something the size of the Dork Diaries books, Pippa's is only half as long (about the same length as the Dear Dumb Diary stories). 

A great series for readers who enjoy friendship and school stories with lots of humor. For example, Pippa talks "Fridge Surprise (which) is whatever Mom can find in the fridge served with rice or pasta...I'm scared what she'll make with yogurt and cauliflower." 

I read an e-book provided by the publisher through NetGalley.
