Description
Watch out, middle school! In her second foray out of graphic novels and into middle grade, Babymouse has a smartphone, and she's not afraid to use it. . . .

Ping! Ping! The sound of texting is in the air. Everyone at middle school has a cell phone. Babymouse just has to get one, too.

But having a phone is a lot of work! Building up a following on SoFamous, learning text lingo, keeping up with all the important koala videos . . . Babymouse is ready to tear her whiskers out. Why does it suddenly feel like she has no friends? Somehow, Babymouse needs to figure out how to stop worrying and love her smartphone . . . if Locker doesn't eat it first.

Highly illustrated with black-and-white art throughout and a dozen or so comic pages, this is the perfect showcase for bestselling authors Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm's signature humor. Middle school may never be the same!

        Starred review from May 1, 2018
        In this sophomore chapter-book offering (Lights, Camera, Middle School!, 2017), Babymouse learns that owning a smartphone may be more trouble than she anticipated.Everyone in middle school has a phone...except Babymouse. She jealously watches her classmates download the newest apps, snap the best pics, and gain tons of followers on their social media accounts. When she finally gets her own, she quickly discovers it is more work than fun. Her new phone lands her squarely in the rat race (or, perhaps, mouse race) of pressure to own the newest model, endless social media demands, and weighing the importance of real-life friends over vacuous online followers. Babymouse's best frenemy, Felicia Furrypaws, has, of course, the latest phone, perfect pics, and thousands of social media followers; will Babymouse be able to emulate her flawlessly curated online presence? In an age when cellphone users skew ever younger, it is refreshing to see a beloved character grapple with the dichotomy between real life and a manufactured online existence. With a mix of accessible prose and charming sequential panels, Babymouse has aged up with her audience, offering fun storylines that are relevant to an upper-elementary audience. Engaging and contemporary, the Holms' second volume is able to touch upon such important issues as online stranger danger and smartphone burnout without resorting to preachiness.#readthisnow. (Graphic/fiction hybrid. 7-10)

      • content: coalisawesome - It's an older version of babymouse. The first one is probably lights, camera, middle school; is the first book of her, but this is the first one I read. And, it's another great book for reading when you're bored! I totally recommend this book.
