Synopsis

Cici Reno #MiddleSchoolMatchmaker by Kristina Springer

Middle school is a test, but Cici Reno has all the answers. She's the go-to girl for advice. She's cool, she's funny and she's enlightened (thanks to yoga classes at her mom's studio). So when her pretty BFF, Aggie, is too shy to Speak to the boy she's crushing on, Cici goes online and does the talking for her. The only problem is, Cici starts to fall for the guy herself! For the first time in her life, she doesn't have a clue.

Reviews

Seventh-grader Cici Reno has a rep as one who gives stellar relationship advice. Her painfully shy BFF, Aggie, has been crushing on Drew (an eighth-grade hockey player) for two years, so to help them connect, Cici creates a Twitter account and strikes up an online relationship with Drew. Posing as Aggie, Cici is able to get Drew s attention. The only problem is, Cici begins to fall for Drew herself, and Aggie is still unable to make any progress with him face-to-face. Torn between friendship with Aggie and romantic feelings for Drew, Cici seeks solace in novels and her mother s yoga classes. Cici is a believable character, struggling with budding jealousy over Aggie s newfound popularity yet wanting to hold on to her friendship. Interspersed with Twitter feeds and yoga poses, this clever twist on Cyrano de Bergerac will win over the hearts of middle-schoolers, particularly those feeling shy or awkward themselves, as well as reluctant readers.
