A funny story about a girl aged 12 who goes through lots of embarrassing situations.

Diary of an almost cool girl - book 2

A new school...a new start. Well, that is what Madonna is hoping for. 

She is a "normal" girl, well kind of. Not in the cool group and not a nerd either. Just in between and trying to fit in. 

Follow her hilarious adventures at her new school. Bet you can relate to heaps of them! 

This book is suitable for girls or boys aged from 8 to 12 years of age. If you liked Diary of a Wimpy Kid, you'll probably like this book. It is about a girl who is "almost cool", kind, resilient and very very funny. 

Diary of an Almost Cool Boy has just been released and it is just as funny and entertaining as this book!

Sample text:

The beautiful blonde hippy woman screamed as the ninja assassin reached towards her. But just in time her slightly more beautiful and very cool 12 year-old daughter triple back flipped in between the ninja and her Mom…blocking his killer strike.

[Edited by Paul Sherman for WPClipart, Public Domain]

Well, not really.

In fact, the blonde hippy woman is actually my mother.  My Mom is alternative with a Capital A…I hope we fit in here! And the ninja assassin is really Mr. Jones and he appears to be rather friendly for a school principal. He greeted me with a huge smile and a high five. In fact, I think that will be a much better name for my new principal, Mr. High Five.

I am the 12 year old girl who back flipped to save my mother. Okay, I’ve got a very active imagination. Actually I’m not beautiful, but a bit of a plain Jane and I’m kind of almost cool, but not quite. I do like to think of myself as a child genius and funnier than a Bugs Bunny cartoon.

This is my new school, Harper Valley Elementary. I liked my old school. It was a pretty good school…before the explosion and fire. Don’t get me wrong. I’m sure it will be good again, once the repairs are finished.

How was I to know that mixing a bit of this with a bit of that would cause an explosion? I bet the inventor of dynamite wasn’t asked to leave his school!

Mom and Dad split a couple of months before my invention incident. After the incident, it was suggested that my Mom should find a school more suitable. This wasn’t a very good start to the year!
