Elicia Castaldi, Jennifer L. Holm

She's going to try out for cheerleading, join Virtual Vampire Vixens, and maybe even fall in love. But middle school is more of a roller-coaster ride than Ginny could have ever predicted. Her family has just moved into a fancy new house when Ginny's stepdad loses his job. (Can worrying about money make you sick?). Ginny's big brother keeps getting into trouble. And there's a new baby on the way. (Living proof that Ginny's mom and stepdad are having sex. Just what she needs.) Filled with Post-its, journal entries, grocery lists, hand-drawn comic strips, report cards, IMs, notes, and more, Eighth Grade Is Making Me Sick is the sometimes poignant, often hilarious, always relatable look at a year in the life of one girl, told entirely through her stuff.

All that Ginny Davis wants is to have 1 good year. Eighth grade is going to be that year. She is going to try out for cheerleading, join vampire vixens, and maybe, if she's lucky, fall in love. Middle school doesn't turn out how she wants it to. Her family ends up moving, her stepdad loses his job, and her big brother keeps getting into trouble, then her family finds out her mom is having a baby. All she can think about is how sick she would be if worrying could make you sick.
