Welcome to My Cozie Corner's stop on the
"Millicent Marie Is Not My Name" book tour.
This tour is brought to you by Innovative Book Tours.
Twelve-year-old Millicent Marie does not like her name. After all, she was named for a woman who died more than fifty years ago and was not the most loveable member of the Harris family. Her friends call her Millie, but when she writes in her diary she refers to herself as Amanda – the name she always wished she had.
When Millie’s younger brother finds her diary on her computer, he decides to publish it as a blog for the entire world to see, including the boy Millie has a crush on. In the midst of all the mayhem, Millie/Amanda discovers she is suddenly Springside Elementary’s most sought after sixth-grade mystery gossip and advice columnist.

A fantastic read about an important topic....words written diary/internet and bullying. Told in the first person by Marie, it give you an insight on how mean kids can be if your not in the "in crowd". Geared to middle school ages, I recommended it to both pre-teen and adult readers.
