I love the Jessica Darling series, so I was excited to read something by McCafferty for younger readers. True to Your Selfie is a great book for middle graders and tweens about friendship and finding what matters.

Ella plays ukelele and sings harmonies with Morgan for their YouTube channel, which has a ton of followers and is on the verge of blowing up. At least, Morgan is determined to make it blow up. She wants to be famous, and she’s grooming Ella to make sure she fits their “brand”. But Ella

A quick read featuring middle schoolers in a world of social media. Twelve year old students Ella and Morgan are Influencers on a fictional Instagram type platform called Fotobooth account. Morgan is running the show as the rich girl who even has a personal chauffeur and an obvious credit card thanks to Daddy. Ella is the grounded, talented buffoon being raised by a single mom who is losing herself as the passenger on the road to famous.

I love the very real dialogue and quick paced story. Many

This story is filled with teenage angst, authentic teen worries and problems and some really fun conflict and suspense. Super fun and easy read!

I liked this book, but I honestly hate the cover and it's one of my least favorite covers ever. I like how Ella kept taking fencing lessons in secret, even after Morgan had told her not to (multiple times). This would be a good book if you like middle school drama books.

True To Your Selfie is chock-full of T (which means drama and gossip for those of you not familiar w/the latest slang). Ella and Morgan are social media superstars, but it comes at a price. Morgan has to pre-approve all of Ella's looks and Ella always has to be the sidekick to Morgan's star. When Ella discovers a sport she enjoys, fencing, which Morgan deems uncool, Ella has to decide if she really wants to be the kind of popular that means subjugating all her own interests. This one is funny ...more

Morgan and Ella are seventh graders you have a Photobomb account that has 10,000 followers. Ella is well-to-do (her father is a congressman and they live in a large house), but Morgan's family struggles. Her father was never really part of the picture, and her mother is going back to school. Her older sister is off at college, although very supportive of Morgan. Along with another classmate, Maddy, the girls make video covers of popular songs, with Morgan playing
