Praise For Rumors from the Boys' Room

School Library Journal, February 2012:
"The lightweight plot skips along steadily, and the black-and-white sketches on lined notebooklike paper add appeal. Cooper’s uncanny ability to think, illustrate, and blog like a middle schooler shines through in Sofia’s charming, comical voice. Fans of Jeff Kinney’s “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” series (Abrams) as well as other diary-related books should find this one especially attractive, while the short, easy format will appeal to reluctant readers."
