Rosie Cole's Memoir Explosion, by Sheila Greenwald, 2006

Rosy's not satisfied with her assignment to write about an interesting relative, so when her college-age sister Pippa suggests she write a memoir about herself instead, Rosy is easily convinced. But the more she tries to follow the format suggested by a Memoir How-To guide, the more she writes a pack of fibs that alienates friends and family. Geared to ages 8-12. Rosy's reasoning during this memoir process is unconvincing; feels like a failed attempt to channel Harriet the Spy. Not recommended.
