The Humiliation of Pipi McGee by Beth Vrabel
The first eight years of Penelope ‘Pipi’ McGee’s education have been a curriculum in humiliation. From her kindergarten self-portrait as a piece of busty bacon to fourth grade when she peed her pants on a field trip (thanks, vile Kara Samson) to seventh grade where . . . well, she doesn’t talk about seventh grade. Ever. Eighth grader Pipi–fearing that her humiliations will follow her into the halls of Northbrook High School next year–decides to use her last year in middle school to clear the slate and to save other innocents from the same picked-on, laughed-at fate. Pipi McGee is seeking redemption, but she’ll take revenge, too”–Dust jacket flap
