Wherein Cisco and the Bean Decide They Are Actually International Secret Agents and Start FLIRT CLUB
Dear Cisco,
Well, it turns out 8th-grade math is just as breathtaking and exciting as 7th-grade math. (NOT!) My math teacher, Mrs. Heinick, is a rover, so I have to write you in spurts and spasms … She likes to stroll down the aisles real slow—she’s like a silent hovercraft or some scary sci-fi phenomenon … like a big floating eyeball with teeth. She thinks I’m doing Algebra—HA-HA-HA-HA.

Praise for Flirt Club

“Oh the trauma of first kisses, crushes and co-ed convos. Izzy and Annie lose their ability to speak around boys. So they start Flirt Club, a secret society of equally distressed buds to help each other out, landing some hilarious and touching results.” –Girls' Life

“Told through very funny notes to each other, journal entries, and minutes from Flirt Club meetings, Daly's debut sparkles with wit, and her protagonists brim with enthusiasm and heart.”
Starred, Publishers Weekly

“Told through a series of notes, journal entries, and minutes from Flirt Club meetings, Daly’s tale of the (mis)adventures of a pair of self-professed drama dorks is a warm and funny portrait of the ups and downs of middle school life.” –Horn Book

“The girls’ friendships are authentic and the situations are definitely on target for middle schoolers.”School Library Journal

“With a pleasing blend of genuine warmth and witty banter, Daly gets the tone just right as she offers up a nice counterbalance to the typical mean-girl story, focusing more on the candid affection between Annie and Izzy than on junior-high dramatics.” —Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Told through the girls’ locker notes, lists, and journal entries, this entertaining read features peppy prose, humor, and on-target issues, such as dealing with insecurities, heartbreak, mean girls, and physical-relationship pressures.” –Booklist

“Just the ticket for preadolescent girls.” –Kirkus Reviews
