A great review from the
Also from Common Sense Media:
Author Christine Hurley Deriso does a great job capturing the woes of middle school with a new twist. There are some great moments that will keep readers laughing and that connect the reader to the characters in the book. One of Talia's columns talks about how dorky her mom can be when she acts as a school volunteer wearing holiday sweaters using old slang and getting kids' names wrong. Almost every kid can identify with that. TALIA TALK is a fresh, funny book that both kids and parents will relate to. Kids may even learn a few lessons in the process.
