Waiting on Wednesday: Don't Call Me Baby

Don't Call Me Baby

Don't Call Me Baby

PD: 04.22.14 by Harper Teen Publishing


All her life, Imogene has been known as the girl on THAT blog.

Imogene's mother has been writing an incredibly embarrassing, and incredibly popular, blog about her since before she was born. Hundreds of thousands of perfect strangers knew when Imogene had her first period. Imogene's crush saw her "before and after" orthodontia photos. But Imogene is fifteen now, and her mother is still blogging about her, in gruesome detail, against her will.

When a mandatory school project compels Imogene to start her own blog, Imogene is reluctant to expose even more of her life online...until she realizes that the project is the opportunity she's been waiting for to tell the truth about her life under the virtual microscope and to define herself for the first time.

Don't Call Me Baby is a sharply observed and irrepressibly charming story about mothers and daughters, best friends and first crushes, and the surface-level identities we show the world online and the truth you can see only in real life


A blog is a convenient way to document what we hold dear. Our passions: Family, Fashion, whatever it may be...

Where do you draw the line on what you share about family and friends in a medium that’s fundamentally about letting readers into your life?

This book touches on a very private but common topic and I am very excited to see the author's thoughts and yours as well.
