Title: The Comic Adventures of Ruby Bella Brown
Genre: Humorous MG, Contemporary
The Comic Adventures of Ruby Bella Brown is Dork Diaries meets Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing and shows readers how to find their inner superhero.
Eleven year-old Ruby Bella Brown creates comics to escape from her wacky family, bullying ex-best friend, and humiliating bra-tastrophes. She’s terrified that last years’ ditch-a-thon will become an annual event, and keeps secrets from her replacement best friend, Julia. But it backfires. Now she’s in danger of losing her, too. The only thing she wants as much as a forever friend is to go to art camp. But just as her dream is about to come true, she’s forced to choose between working with her favorite cartoonist or helping Julia—hoping she’ll turn into a forever friend.
I’d eat worms or kiss a gross boy like Stinky Gorman to make sure my eleventh birthday won’t be another suck-a-rama.
