Review: The Dirt Diary by Anna Staniszewski

Review: The Dirt Diary by Anna Staniszewski

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...

-summary and cover via Goodreads

Plot: This was a good read, I enjoyed it! I didn't know if I would like it or not, based on the summary of it, but it was different than I expected, in a good way! I don't really know why, but I thought it would be about her using infomation she finds out against them, but it wasn't like that, not really. It was a good read, and I look forward to finding out what the next one's about! :)

Characters: I like Rachel as a main character in the book! Part of the time, she was a little whiny, but that's understandable with everything she was going through. I like her friend Marisol! I like her Mom! I like Evan and Andrew!

The cover: Fun! I think it gets your attention and I think it fits the book well! And Rachel looks like how I thought of her during it! :)

Overall: If you're looking for a good MG book, this one is for you! I think it'll go over really well with MG readers too! :)

Would I Recommend it?:
Yep! A fun MG book that I think a lot of MG readers are going to enjoy a lot! :)
