    it looks like this book is for boys but its not because it is mostly about boys talking about stuff and girls are listen to them and they think there fighting and they get in trouble so they to listen more carefully when they listen because the girls lockers are right next to the boys room it is a really fabulous book.

    I think that this book was just as good as Rose Coopers first book, filled with many more surprises as Sofia tries to rise to the top and become popular through her blog. Can't wait to read the next book!P.S. I liked the character named Maddie. ☺

    I thought this book was very well written. Its realistic fiction, and I think any girl and guys would enjoy this book. There are a couple other books in the series, and I intend on reading those as well.

    This is a cute book, written in a similar style to Diary of a Wimpy Kid. I would recommend this as a fun book for 5th and 6th grade girls. This just came in for our library and I will be interested in hearing the students' feedback.

    This middle-grade novel is bonkers! And I genuinely mean that in the best way possible. Rose Cooper's illustrations and text are brilliant fun. So many laugh out loud moments, so much zaniness, and Sofia is a terrifically kooky and charming narrator. I really enjoyed this Blogtastic! Novel.

    A sequel to Gossip from the Girls' Room, Sofia is back, and this time she's determined that she's only going to blog about things she knows are completely true. Unfortunately, she's still getting most of her information from overhearing other people talking around the school. Sofia discovers that even when she's trying to tell only the facts, the way she goes about find things out might not be the most reliable.The perfect book for your information literacy class. Can't you just picture it? We all read Rumors from the Boys' Room and talk about how people go about finding out information, and that just because it's then published online in no way confirms its accuracy. Thanks Rose Cooper.Anyway. So this is short and cute. Sofia has a blog through her school, and last time (in the last book), she got in trouble for posting things that weren't true. Sofia is still determined to be the best blogger ever (thereby increasing her popularity), just this time she won't listen to gossip. She still hasn't quite gotten a handle on how to go about finding reliable information. Sometimes even when she observes things, she realizes that what she thought was happening wasn't actually what was happening at all. For example, she reported on a big fight outside of the boys' room and ended up getting a bunch of kids in trouble. They claimed all they were doing was demonstrating wrestling moves.While Sofia is trying to be a blogger, she's also trying to help her friend Nona catch the eye of the new foreign exchange student, Lukas. Unfortunately, Sofia's advice is to make Nona dress more girly, which then leads Lukas to become un-interested in her. Sofia is also trying to get the attention of her long-time crush, Andrew, plus, her mother is pregnant and driving her crazy.Poor Sofia. She really is trying to help! She's just totally clueless.Rumors from the Boys' Room is an illustrated novel, as Sofia is supposedly taking notes (and drawing pictures) in her notebook so she'll be able to blog about things later.Definitely a fun one for middle school girls.

    Ver volver a Sofía, ahora desde el cuarto de baño de chicos, es todo un gusto. Sofía, sí, la mismísima autora “secreta” del Mejor blog del mundo mundial (como Bla-bla bloguer). Aunque la verdad es que no está literalmente dentro del cuarto de baño de chicos, sí a un paso de él. No culpo a Sofía por escuchar cosas que casualmente se dicen (murmuran) cerca de donde se encuentre, cualquiera lo hace y no se puede evitar. Además, todo eso le viene muy bien –también por casualidad- para darle contenido a su blog. La vida en la escuela es difícil, pero recordemos que no es en eso en lo que se basa esta historia –al menos no se nota-, sino en la propia vida de Sofía y su curioso método de conseguir noticias de varias personas populares dentro de la escuela. Si bien es cierto que a veces parecen muy pocos días para todo lo que pasa en la historia, cuando uno se topa con una comedia lo único que importa, ahora y siempre, son las risas. Qué tan capaz es la historia de provocar una buena risa, y tal como en el primer título, Sofía mantiene su lugar en mis favoritos. Ahora, con la chispa andante entre su mejor amiga Nona y el estudiante de intercambio Lukas, las cosas toman una pizca más de dificultad, pero no se preocupen, que pequeñeces como esa no pueden detener a nuestra fantástica protagonista en su búsqueda de noticias, que aunque no lo parezca todos tenemos aunque sea una pequeña célula de curiosidad para los chismes de las personas que nos rodean. Este diario suyo es la prueba más clara de cómo las cosas no siempre salen como uno las espera, pero siempre hay una oportunidad de rescatar un buen momento.Dejen las amistades, familias, y amores crecer, que aunque no inmediatamente, Sofía ya ha impregnado su gracia en nosotros, sus lectores, y permitido imaginar montones de cosas sobre cómo continúa su historia, y hasta cómo ver la nuestra de forma mucho más divertida.

    It’s time to review a great new middle grade novel that’s hit the shelves. The second in the Blogtastic series, Rumors from the Boy’s Room is Rose Cooper’s second novel.The Story- Sofia is back, along with her best friend Nona and her bow wearing enemy Mia. This year, Sofia is getting all the information for her school blog from conversations overheard in the hallways and outside the boys’ room. The big news of this school year is that an exchange student is coming.The other hot news item, Sofia’s mom is pregnant, and Sofia is feeling the brunt of her mother’s mood swings.Troubles arise when the foreign exchange student, Lukas, falls for Nona. Mia is none to happy about it and Sofia sets out to protect her best friend from the revenge of the popular girls.My Thoughts- A really cute middle grade read. Girls will enjoy this book. Sofia is her sarcastic self causing lots of problems and funny mishaps. Like the first book, this one is a journal, with lots of humorous drawings to describe Sofia’s feelings.The story felt quicker and the plot was not as involved as the first book, but still it is good fun. The headings got a little confusing, sometimes I wasn’t sure which day it was or when something was happening. I loved the theme that was a subplot of the Nona and Lukas relationship. Nona tries to get Lukas’ attention by dressing up and pretending to be something she is not. It isn’t until she gives up on her silly plan and returns to her wonderful normal self, that Lukas becomes interested again. Girls take heed- be yourself.A funny, laugh out loud book, Rumors is perfect for middle grade readers.

    Rumors from the Boys Room by Rose Cooper is an illustrated novel about Sophia, middle school gossip blogger. Sophia's notebook contains all the gossip she finds to post on her blog (not all of which ends up being accurate). From her teacher mother's pregnancy to the new foreign exchange student at school Rose keeps us up with all the gossip.This is a cute and easy book that young readers will enjoy. It's partially illustrated with drawn pictures every couple pages to keep readers who are new to chapter books interested and the plot is very easy to follow. I found myself smiling through Sophia's missteps and successes in her blog, friendships and first crushes. Appropriateness: There is a bit of romance in this book of the crush type. If you've got a kid that thinks that romance is gross then I'd skip this one. Sophia is in middle school and her behavior is that of a young sixth grader and I feel this book will be of interest to girls 9-12. It is short and easy to read for reluctant readers.

    Pages: 192Lexile Level: 710 Age Group: 10-13Summary:Sofia is in the sixth grade and she wants to get all the gossip that she can get in the sixth grade! She is especially curious about a foreign exchange student that comes to her school from Germany (even though she was positively absolutely sure he was coming from England)! She gets much of her gossip by listening in on teachers and other students. Every bit of gossip she gets goes on her blog and most of it is wrong, but she doesn't care. She is out to get the scoop on everything that is going on in her middle school.Comments:Both boys and girls alike will love how this book is written. It is very similar to the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. There are illustrations and captions that refer to what Sofia is saying. Kids who love humor will love these Blogtastic books!Reviewed By: Jen T.

    Rumors from the Boy's Room is an illustrated novel in journal format. It's very similar in look and feel to the Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Dork Diaries series. Sofia is a funny, quirky narrator who is constantly snooping (and overhearing information incorrectly) in order to discover interesting information to post on her blog (and hopefully become popular). Her conversational tone and spunky voice remind me of a younger Mia Thermoplolis from Meg Cabot's Princess Diaries series. The doodle-like illustrations add humor throughout. Although this is the second book in a series, it is not necessary to have read the first to enjoy the second.Overall, I recommend this book to people looking for a cute, fast read; those who enjoy stories told in diary format and those looking for more like Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Dork Diaries.

    I read this book without any preconceived ideas. I have not read Ms. Cooper's first book, Rumors from the Girls' Room or any of the Wimpy Kids books that are often compared with Ms. Cooper's books. I have a young middle school child and can't get him away from the computer or blogs. This book was fun. I can't think of any other way to describe the Blogtastic Book. I've seen the word 'bubbly' used to describe the first book and couldn't agree more. I found myself laughing out loud at the crazy antics of the characters in this book. The trials and tribulations of a middle schooler are perfectly explained in this book. Poor Sofia and her friend Nona have the misfortune of not being in the 'popular' crowd. I look forward to more books by this author.

    This review is based on an e-galley from was just as cute as Gossip from the Girls Room. However, this Rumors from the Boys' Room didn't have the moral of not gossiping about people like the first book did. But, less of the book was focused on hating on other girls and spreading stories about them. This one was slightly more focused on friendship, relationships, and taking a leading role in activities. A very cute read for elementary kids! This is a great book for Wimpy Kid and Big Nate fans! Both boys and girls will love this one. And there is a third in the series expected out next summer! I love how Cooper put a lead at the end of each book for the next book in the series. This one gets 5 stars from me!

    I just read this awesome book called Rumors from the Boys' Room By: rose Cooper.This book is the second book in its series. This book is about a girl named Sophia who is in middle school trying to be popular. Sophia created a blog with she writes the most juiciest information. Her best friend Nona are both wanting to be popular. Since Sophia's locker is right next to the boys bathroom she tries to get info for her blog. One day she hears some teachers talking about a foreign exchange student coming. Only Sophia gets it wrong and puts it in her blog. Someone else gets a blog ans is trying to beat her. This book is great for more "info" as she would say you should this book for juicy gossip! (you should read the whole series)

    This was OK. The character's voice was pretty accurate as far as portraying an 11-year-old girl, and the journal was written in the right style. However, that means it was meandering, choppy and sometimes pointless. The "blogtastic" part of this book was a bit of a misnomer. There were no interactive features, which was what I was expecting. The main character simply has a blog, which is a regurgitation of events that she writes about in her diary. Sometimes you get a chuckle here and there, but this is a Wimpy Kid cash-in. Not one that I'd recommend readily unless you have to read books in this style.

    I thaught this book was a very good book. It had alot of confusing parts in it. Its a none fiction book and its about middle school, somthing you can kinda relate to. This book was about a girl with her own internet blog and drama between her friends and family. She strugles a bit, but has the curage to fix things and make it better. If you like problem solving and somthing you feel like you can relate to, than this is the perfect book for you. Its a drama, funny, and problem solving book. I would recamend all my friends to read this book, and im definitly going to consider reading a nother book by Rose Cooper.

    I actually liked this one better than Gossip from the Girls' room. I still have a problem with the set up - the notebook and a classroom-based blog in which the teacher allows such non-educational and, well, nasty posts. Most classroom based blogs are built around an activity (book reviewing) or unit. It would've been more believable had she just been blogging secretly. Sofia's entertaining in her self-centered, single-minded determination to be popular and take down the alpha girl. Girls at my school either love her or hate her. And they want the sequel.

    How hard is everyone trying to come up with a new version of Diary of a Wimpy Kid? Pretty hard. For me this book was a shallow read that would work on the beach and would be lightly entertaining but doesn't have much substance. I would not head to the shelves to find it if I had a young reader asking me for a book recommendation. Sorry, I just think our children deserve more.

    This one annoyed me because the narrator is so self-centered. However, for those fans of Judy Moody and Dork Diaries who enjoy a graphic element to their novels, and even fans of basic girl school stories, this one will be a hit.The narrator has a school-endorsed blog where she posts rumors and news, many of which are based on her eavesdropping outside of the boys' room (thus the title).

    I bought it as a gift, but I decided to take a look at it before giving it away. I was supposed to just give it a quick glance, but I ended up reading the entire book in a couple of hours. My conclusion: light, fresh, and entertaining.
