A light (and light-hearted) read, Tabloidology follows the two very different lives of Martin Wettmore (grammar enthusiast, partial nerd, and most likely the most boring person EVER), and Trixi Wilder (frequent visitor to the principal's office, writing hater, rich girl and prankster extrordinaire).

This is an ok book, but not for middle schoolers. SLJ says 4 to 7 but I don't see many of my 7th graders picking this one up. It would be an elementary book even though protagonists are in middle school. Even some of the language seems elementary school with "recess" and same classrooms throughout the day.

I learned that if you want something informative, but you also want it to be creative, you should get one person who wants to stick to the facts and one person who is kind of crazy.
