Girls Acting Catty by Leslie Margolis (13)

In this sequel to Boys are Dogs, Annabelle is preparing for Halloween with her best friends. They have the best costumes ever and are all set to pull in a monster haul of candy. After a close call with eighth grade boys and rotten eggs, the girls are confronted by Taylor and the Terrible T's, who though dressed identically as "rock stars," manage to dis the girls' creative costumes. Rachel really can't stand Taylor. Annabelle admits that what the girls did as a group was not nice, but individually, they seem nice. Rachel insists that isn't so.

While Annabelle is trying to figure this dynamic out, she discovers that her mother and "the Dweeb" have decided to get married, "mini-Dweeb" is returning home from college and horrors of horrors, she needs to wear a bra.

This breezy and fun read features a funny and likeable heroine in Annabelle and is sure to be popular among tween girls. Due to be released in September.
