Another fake book. Nothing seemed real! It's all about this girl whose parents get a juice bar restaurant at the food court in the mall. The girl hates shopping, so it's a burden, not a blessing. Then the school newspaper is in danger of being cut (Oh no! The horror!)so the girl starts a gossip section in the paper to get people to buy it, using gossip she hears from girls in the mall - gee, I don't know how that could go wrong, do you?

Personally I love this book in many different ways. I wasn't able to put the book down and when I did I was eager to get back in to it because it was probably that I was sleeping or in the car! I personally think that if you are looking to read a book in less than 24 hours and just need something to just do I recommend this book. I do not like how they didn't say who the princess and prince was at the end, but it was kinda obvious and that was just one thing out of 176 pages!

Juicy Gossip is about a girl. She is head of the newspaper committee. Her parents opened a juice bar and now she is mortified, because its in the middle of the mall where everybody from school will be YIKES!!!! On top of that The newspaper might be shut down!!! In order to stop that she puts the school gossip in the newspapers so more school kids will read them, and the newspaper committee will not have to be shut down.

Although seventh grader Jenna Sampson is editor of the school paper, she couldn't feel further away from being in the know of popular topics, interests, and gossip in her school.

Her parents are opening a juice bar in the middle of the mall, and not only does Jenna hate the mall, but she doesn't even like juice. So, now that her parents are forcing her to work there three days a week (and wear a pineapple hat -- no kidding), Jenna is terrified that

I read this as part of my job to see what age group it would be appropriate for and I must say that it was very cute, appropriate for (I'd say) grades 4-7, and that I would actually read more of this series!

Kudos to the Candy Apple writers!

She then creates a gossip column, using the pen name “Little Miss Mango.” Once her best friend, Keisha, and some of the popular girls read the column, they make it a mission to find out who “Little Miss Mango” really is. Can Jenna keep both her “secret identity” and her friends? Will she be able to save the sch ...more

Personally, I hated this book. There is not much character development, literary elements, etc. i know it's a kid book but there are hundreds of books out there for kids that are sweet and well-written with great heroes/heroines.
