She grabs the wrong shopping bag from the principal's office -- one containing a very personal item. and even that might not be so bad, if only Selfie didn't immediately lose it.

This book was an entertaining, quick read with relatable characters and a humorous plot.

When geeky sixth-grader Becca Birnbaum accidentally hits popular eighth-grader Sloan "Selfie" St. Clair with a ball during gym it sets off a series of events that no one would have ever expected including accidentally taking a bag containing the principal's bra...and then losing it. Humorous hijinks follow as this odd couple works together to try to find the principal's garment before they face even bigger problems.

I found this story to be quite humorous and enjoyed Becca and Selfie's interesting relationship.  I enjoyed seeing the pair get to know one another and find common ground despite their differences. In addition to a fun plot, the story is filled with humorous illustrations from Becca's POV that made me chuckle and enhanced the story.

The fun illustrations as well as the quirky characters and are sure to entertain middle grade readers, especially fans of the Wimpy Kid or Dork Diaries series.  I wouldn't mind reading more stories from Becca's world.
