This week's Everyday Etiquette question on navigating the waters of Middle School inspired the following comment from Amy:

"Here's what a I want: ten books you'd recommend to a girl in this particular situation. Or to the gossipy girl. This is my first year teaching sixth grade and man, oh man, this must be a UNIVERSAL sixth grade thing!"

First of all, Amy, let me say...congratulations! and, oh wow, sixth grade? and my condolences and you are a brave woman! And, secondly, I'd like this booklist too.

So, we're looking for good books for Middle School girls on dealing with that gossipy girl. Camille of Bookmoot has already thrown out a great suggestion: The Girls by Amy Goldman Koss. What else would you suggest?
