Friends call Becca the Overshare Queen, but her tendency for TMI never seemed like a problem to her until she blabs about her sweet band-geek boyfriend's sloppy kisses - and gets dumped! Realizing it may be better to resist the temptation to overshare face-to-face, Becca decides to blog anonymously about everything instead. On her blog, Too Much Information, Becca unleashe ...more

TMI was a fun and thoughtful book. I found it easier to relate to than most other books set in high school. Most of the things that happen in this book happen everyday in the halls of high schools. Also the characters seemed like people I know, definitely.

So while I myself related more with Becca's friend Katie (I personally tend to undershare) I definitely got a kick out of Becca, let's just say I have a few overshare queens in my own family! I definitely know what it's like to hear things abou

Becca has a habit, though she never knew it would get her in so much trouble. You see, she tells more than she has to. Many times in her life, she has been told, “Too much information, Becca.” She’s sick of it. When she blabs about her boyfriend’s uncomfortable kisses, she gets dumped. As a New Year’s Resolution, she stops telling too much information so instead she starts an anyomous blog to get her feelings out while sparing embarrassment. On her blog, she admits her crush, reveals her friend’ ...more

Becca, a high school sophomore, is a bubbly girl who loves to talk about anything, anytime. She shares every little detail of her life and other lives with her friends, and it finally gets her into big trouble when her boyfriend breaks up with her for blabbing about his sloppy kisses to her friends. Becca decides that's the last time she'll overshare, so she stops talking all the time and instead begins anonymously blogging about her life, changing names and embellishing personalities to make pe ...more

This book took me by surprise. I honestly thought it was gonna be just one of those YA novels, no offense Sarah Quigley, and I am so glad it wasn't! Now that Sarah, that girl can write and entertain. TMI made me laugh soo darn much, and not just on the inside, on the outside too. It's laugh out loud funny! I really liked it. :)
TMI is the story of a fifteen year old girl, Becca, who has a wee bit of a problem, she overshares a little too

Becca has always been know as the overshare queen of her high school. Since, when anything happens to her, no matter how gross, she always has to tell someone, pronto.

Though, when her oversharing habits go behind the limit, hurting someone she loves dearly, she knows she has to stop. So, instead of oversharing with her friends and classmates, she starts up a blog with an alter ego name Bella, telling all of the glory details of her life. Since, no one is going to read it, right?


Plot: I really liked the idea of TMI. The whole idea of teens having blogs and the repercussions of blogs is something that isn't written about too much. So, the idea was very original. However, I think that this story could've been written a little better than it was. In the beginning, I found it very slow moving and boring. I didn't really get into the story until almost a hundred pages in. Then it got really exciting, but then, just after a little bit, it got boring again, and the ending seem ...more

TMI by Sarah Quigley was an amazing book. I love all the drama and happenings in this book. The characters were relatable and they seemed like they could have been real I loved seeing the development through the book. The writing style was very simple so I liked that and the book is very relatable for me. The main character reminds me of one of my best friends becuase well sadly she's not very good at keeping secrects. This teaches you a valuble lesson to try to stay away from drama if possible ...more

This is definitely one of those Message Books: Do.Not.Make.This.Mistake. ... but it's done in such a way that I think the target audience can relate to and perhaps get, message-wise. It falls into that group of books that includes Good Girls, or Story of a Girl, with less drastic issues. It also falls into the Girl Starts Blog/Diary genre. Or the G-rated version of an ABC Afterschool Special.

I liked Becca, and while her habit of TMI was (at times) cringe-worthy, her story did ring true. I was le

Cover: The cover is nice. I like how the green eyes match the font.
StoryLine: This book was kind of hard to get into. Don't get me wrong, there were times where I found myself flying through the pages, eager to know what happens next, but there were just as many times where I found myself trying to pick the book back up and to get back into it.
Characters: The main character, Becca, annoyed me at times. The stuff she said was just so embarrassing most of the time. The rest of the characters were

I think everyone has had a TMI moment at one time in their life. Becca unfortunately has a ton of them! The girl had me rolling on the floor. Well I guess Sarah Quigley had me rolling on the floor!

I felt like I was stepping back in to my small town high school when I was reading this book. The characters held a overwhelming sense of deja-vu. I’m not exactly sure it that made this a more enjoyable read, but it did hold a more realistic aspect for me.

Personally I related more to Becca’s friend K

I read this book after meeting the author at a Carleton reunion book signing. And I enjoyed it a lot, although it took me a little while to get into. The main character, Becca, is kind of hard to take--and at the beginning her ceaseless chatter and total lack of introspection put me off. But I think that's done on purpose, because her character develops to become much more interesting. I liked the characters Becca surrounded herself with and the way the author keeps you guessing--there are some ...more

Becca is the queen of oversharing; she can’t help saying whatever’s on her mind, even if it’s inappropriate or embarrassing (to herself, or to others). When her big mouth causes her first boyfriend to break up with her, she realizes that she needs to channel her urge to share somewhere else. She starts a blog, TMI (too much information), with pseudonyms and fantasies, thinking that no one will ever connect it with her life in Pine Prairie, MN. The plot is fairly predictable, but the writing styl ...more

This book is about a girl named Becca who just shares everything that is on her mind (Too Much Information). Because of this habit, she doesn't have too many friends. She decides to make an anonymous blog where she can say anything she feels without people knowing it is her. There is lots of drama in the book varying from boy troubles, friend problems, and family disagreements. I recommend this book to people who like lots of drama and action in a book. It also has a little bit of humor to make ...more

Becca has a problem: She has a big mouth. Well, it isn't a problem to her, but to her friends, and especially her enemies. Her boyfriend, dramatically breaks up with her after she spills one of his secrets and he finds out. She decides that instead of being a blabbermouth, she'll be a blogger, just like the glamorous New York blogger she follows. Meanwhile, she shares major news, like the fact that her mom is pregnant and her best friend, Jai, is gay. She's also managed to make an enemy of one o ...more

This was just your everyday fluffy chick-lit book. It was a great read and the only reason that I'm not giving it a full five-stars is because the premise of the novel has been done before. Girl talks to much...hurts her friends...they make up and become friends again. It's just typical. BUT it was a fun read and very light hearted.

COMMITTEE WISE: Not going to recommend it because of a lack of pertinent literary value and simplicity of plot!

Becca likes to talk and tends to share too much about herself and her friends with others. When she kisses and tells a bit too much about her first boyfriend, Becca learns how much that can hurt. In an attempt to control her oversharing, she decides to write an anonymous blog as a diary to help keep her thoughts more private. With friends Katie and Jai by her side, Becca navigates this highschool drama with character. A cute, if not overly reaching, highschool novel.

Becca has a habit of sharing too much information. This sometimes leads to trouble. When she blabs about her boyfriends kisses and gets dumped, she feels terrible. She decides to start an open blog (bak idea!) called TMI where she vents all her feelings. The book is in a high school setting some drama.

Overall, I liked this book. It was a nice light read. It doens't compare to books like the Harry Potter series, though.

I liked this book,it's perfect for any girly girl who loves books with romance and fun. Becca will show you her another identity, as a blogger, "Vanessa", who's telling the blog world about her life as a different person, but with the same incidents happening. I liked it, but to me, something was missing that would make the book great!

I thought tat this book was fantastic, it had a lot of felling in it and I enjoy books that express that. I think they should make another book because they kind of ended on a random note I want to know what happens with two of the characters, like if they end up dating or not. Overall this book is a great book for a addictive read.

$0.50 and a cute cover--that's why I got this book. It was a high school dramedy, basically, and appropriately high-schoolerish. Cute in places, overdone in some places, but overall, a decent fluffy evening read.

This book was a surprising find. I think that I would have absolutely adored it, had I of been a teenager when I read it. I too have been bit by the blogger bug in the past and have regretted it. This book was rather clever. I knew exactly how Becca felt often throughout this book.

Sarah started a blog when she was procrastinating writing her master’s thesis. A few years later, the blog caught the attention of an editor at Dutton Children’s Books, who asked Sarah if she was interested in writing a young adult novel. Thus, the seeds for TMI were planted. Sarah is something of a unicorn in the publishing world: a first-time author wh
