Babymouse has entered the land of the locker. She's made the big move up to middle school and she's already failing an important subject.... "friends." In the "good friends" category Felicia and Henry have been crossed off. They are now in the "kinda sometimes friends" group. Three people hate her and so does her locker.
Today everybody is picking out their "Activities." What should Babymouse choose? Cheer? Handball? Recycling? Maybe film club? This could be her chance to be famous. Babymouse signs up for film club.
At the first meeting the Film Club Advisor makes Babymouse the director for the film the club is going to produce. She's going to write the script/screenplay, too. Can she deal with the divas and the competition from the Drama Club? Can she handle working with no budget? Can she conquer the biggest problem of all... herself?
A case of the bossies strikes Babymouse and now she has to direct herself out of a sticky situation. Fun. Funny. A whole new mouse for us to follow and cheer for.

It’s a new kind of book for Babymouse! Fans of Dork Diaries, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and James Patterson’s Middle School books, this is going to be epic. . . .
For Babymouse, middle school is like a monster movie. You can never be sure who’s a friend and who’s an enemy, and the halls are filled with mean-girl zombies. Instead of brains, the zombies hunger for stuff—the perfect wedge sandals or the right shade of sparkly lip gloss—and they expect everyone to be just like them.
But Babymouse doesn’t want to fit in—she wants to stand out! So she joins the film club to write and direct a sweeping cinematic epic. Will making the film of her dreams turn into a nightmare?
Thanks to Babymouse, middle school gets schooled in this hilarious new series from bestselling authors Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm.
