Rated PG-13.

I really don't care for this book. It is not much like Dicey's Song, which I love--or, for that matter, Jackaroo or even Izzy Willy-Nilly. It is just kind of odd--it reminds me of, say, Judy Blume's books or Laurie Halse Andersen's books or something--just not really in a good way.
I cannot tell if I would have enjoyed this story more had I read it at 10 or 11. I had a hard time distinguishing between Mikey and Margalo for the first several pages, and I think I had the same problem years ago with Bad Girls. The girls are outwardly intent on keeping up their "bad" image and argue and act tough a lot. I found their attitudes and interactions at times forced. Other times, however, they had delightful and surprising exchanges. There's not much of a plot here, but I am determin ...more
The only reason I picked up this book was because when I was in school the girls in my class were head over heels for this book. We did have a better cover than what is available on the site. I must say though it showed the dynamics between girls dead on. I was into books with more excitement at the time so it didn't really strike a chord in me. Though I did enjoy it when I read it when I compaired it up with books I've read now, I just couldn't give it that many stars.

Interesting story, realistically portrayed and had me laughing. I was definitely reliving my childhood and what it was like to be a girl that age. It was a good read as is the whole series.

It's 6th grade now and Mickey and Margalo are back from summer break raring to go. Now, however, there's a new girl in class and there's something about her that Mickey doesn't like....
This book was very good, and it shows what these bad girls feel when an even BADDER girl shows up. An adolescence book. The second book in the "Bad Girls" series.
This was good. An even badder girl than Mikey and Margalo comes to town. This book is well-handled, but for obvious reasons, after it's over, the girls lose their edge.
10-11 Isabella
I thought that this book was very silly and unrealistic. Kids would never act that way. It was fake to the binding.
Knowing Cynthia Voigt, this is a disappointing book. Nothing that captures the reader and takes you into the book.
I generally felt the same about this one as I did the first one.
It just wasnt my kind of book !
