Exclamation April Book Club pick: Rotten Apple by Rebecca Eckler

Thanks to Farah for our Children's/Young Adult pick for April! Here's the summary:

Apple is the opposite of her outspoken mother and gossipy, chatty best friends; she’s always been the cool, calm, and collected one. But her life is about to spiral out of control. Apple’s super-sized, secret crush on her friend Zen leads her into major trouble. And she’s realizing it might not have been such a good idea to pose as her mother–the famous talk show host and self-help guru, Dr. Bee Berg–and send out fake advice emails to keep her (devastatingly beautiful) friend Happy away from Zen. Before she knows it, her best friend hates her, the whole school knows about her crush, and she is humiliated on national TV. How much more will it take for Apple to learn that taking advice is just as important as giving it?

Girls, I just realized this book is not available from US companies. I ordered it from chapters.ca. Maybe one of you can pay postage to get Farah's copy, and then I can pass mine on to somebody else when I'm done with it.
