My Review: This short story is about a young girl named Maddi. The story starts with Maddi sitting in the principals office waiting for her mum to arrive so he can explain how Maddi almost burnt the school down.

Maddi's first diary entry tells the readers that she gives everyone nicknames based on their traits such as her parents and teachers. The book goes on through some lessons and trouble she has with the schools MG (Mean Girl).

One day Maddi tries to get the day off school so that her mum doesn't end up volunteering in the school canteen but it doesn't work and the children all complain to Maddi about her mum who uses tofu instead of sausage, give out vegetables instead of a bag of crisps and gives on kid a green smoothie instead of the chocolate milkshake they wanted, but Maddi's week gets worse when her parents tell her that their getting divorced.

After a lot of chaos Maddi finally tells the readers about the big fire that almost burnt down the school. It happens when Mr. Facebook one of her other teachers ends up taking her for science, she is sat at the back of the class and cannot hear the instructions for the experiment clearly and when she she asks the teacher he is to busy on his phone to pay any attention to Maddi and he just says yes so Maddi makes a mistake and the experiment goes wrong and she ends up throwing her beaker in a waste paper basket which sets the fire alarms off.

The story is nicely written but is definitely written more for children than for someone my age.
