The Terrible Secrets of the Tell-All Club

No one at school had ever thought up a club like this. All you had to do to be in it is answer some questions and share them with the rest of the club. Questions like: What is your favorite salad dressing? Who is your BFF? What was your most embarrassing moment? Kiley, T.J., Josh, and Anne each have a different motivation: one wants to fit in, one wants revenge, one has something to hide, and one is dying to find out another’s secret. Told in four different viewpoints, this funny, touching novel explores friendship, social pressures, bullying, and the other anxieties of kids everywhere—boys and girls alike.
