Definitely Daphne

by Tami Charles
Illustrated by Marcos Calo

In front of her followers, Daphne is a hilarious, on-the-rise vlog star. But at school Daphne is the ever-skeptical Annabelle Louis, seventh-grade super geek and perennial new kid. To cope with her mom's upcoming military assignment in Afghanistan and her start at a brand new middle school, Annabelle's parents send her to a therapist. Dr. Varma insists Annabelle try stepping out of her comfort zone, hoping it will give her the confidence to make friends, which she'll definitely need once Mom is gone. Luckily there is one part of the assignment Annabelle DOES enjoy--her vlog, Daphne Doesn't, in which she appears undercover and gives hilarious takes on activities she thinks are a waste of time. She is great at entertaining her online fans, yet her classmates don't know she exists. Can Annabelle keep up the double life forever?

School Library Journal - Shelley Sommer, Inly School, Scituate, MA

"Charles succeeds in capturing the particular brand of anxieties that accompany the middle school years: concerns about friends, relationships, and the influence of social media. Over the course of the novel, Annabelle gradually discovers that she can make friends by being herself rather than pretending to be someone else. Recommend for those who enjoy funny and fast-paced stories about school and friends." - School Library Journal

Kirkus Reviews

"Text-message transcripts and Annabelle's imaginary scripts enliven her narration. . . .it is refreshing to see diverse characters tackling the normal highs and lows of middle school life." - Kirkus Reviews
