The Dirt Diary by Anna Staniszewski

December 9th, 2013 by melissa y.

Watch out for this new middle grade novel, The Dirt Diary, coming out in January, 2014.  Fans of The Mother Daughter Book Club series and How to Rock Braces and Glasses – take notice!

Rachel, the protagonist of The Dirt Diary, is an insecure eighth grader whose parents are divorcing.  When her Dad up and moves to Florida to start a scuba diving business, Rachel hatches a plan to make some money so she can fly down there and talk some sense into him.  Part of that plan involves Rachel working for her mother’s new house-cleaning company. Unfortunately, her mom is cleaning the houses of some of the most popular kids in Rachel’s school!

The Dirt Diary is filled with baking, friendship drama, first crushes, bullying, and middle school angst.  Tween girls will eat it up.  Take a look at Melissa G.’s full review and the Sweet on Books Author Interview with Anna Staniszewski.

The Dirt Diary will be published on January 7, 2014.  The sequel, The Prank List, will be released in July 2014 and the third book (tentatively titled), The Gossip File, will be out in 2015.
