Annabelle has tamed the wild boys, mastered the social hierarchy of catty mean girls, and bugged out over her first school dance. But now it's time for the school talent show. Annabelle's been asked to be a judge. Which is perfect ...until her friends accuse Annabelle of playing favorites because her boyfriend Oliver asked for special treatment. Can Annabelle remain an impartial judge without hurting anyone's feelings? The trials and tribulations of middle school that make this series so relatable (and fun!) are back in full force in this book.
The fourth book in the Annabelle Unleashed series--judging a talent show takes one tough chick!
Margolis delivers a vivacious third installment in the Annabelle Unleashed series...[Her] breezy tone nicely conveys the peaks and valleys of middle-school life. Readers will be cheering for Annabelle. Kirkus Reviews on Everybody Bugs Out [An] effervescent story...The story lines-melded household, moving, boys as dogs-coalesce naturally, giving girl readers a thoughtful story along with, just possibly, some substantive boy advice. PW on Boys Are Dogs, starred review Margolis handles Annabelle's minor crises with sensitivity and humor...A good addition to collections where the first book is popular, as well as an appealing stand-alone. School Library Journal on Girls Acting Catty
