Celebrating 5 years StuckInBooks ~ Day 15



With the New Year, StuckInBooks turns FIVE!


And we're celebrating with GIVEAWAYS!



All her life, Imogene has been known as the girl on THAT blog.

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.

  1. I've been wanting to read this book forever. I like the idea because I want to imagine what it would be like if a real blogger's child had this perspective ;) and also to maybe rec it to a mommy blogger or something.

  2. I'm a mom, and my daughter has commented that she's really glad I don't post personal things about her. I'd like to see how this book ends!

  4. This book sounds like a great read and has definitely intrigued me. I've never understood how parents could post every little detail about their children online, especially against their will. I would truly love to see where this author takes this story.
