Summary from Goodreads:

Imogene's mother has been writing an incredibly embarrassing, and incredibly popular, blog about her since before she was born. Hundreds of thousands of perfect strangers knew when Imogene had her first period. Imogene's crush saw her "before and after" orthodontia photos. But Imogene is fifteen now, and her mother is still blogging about her, in gruesome detail, against her will. When a mandatory school project compels Imogene to start her own blog, Imogene is reluctant to expose even more of her life online...until she realizes that the project is the opportunity she's been waiting for to tell the truth about her life under the virtual microscope and to define herself for the first time. Don't Call Me Baby is a sharply observed and irrepressibly charming story about mothers and daughters, best friends and first crushes, and the surface-level identities we show the world online and the truth you can see only in real life.

I like Gwen Heasley's books, they're light and fun and perfect for reading as summer approaches. Don't Call Me Baby sounds particularly good because of the blogging aspect - I mean, how embarrassing! Poor Imogene. I look forward to reading about how this author perceives blogging!

OMG, this book sounds so good, the funny thing is there are so many mothers online blogging about every little thing their children do these days that it seems very realistic too.
