Don’t Call Me Baby by Gwendolyn Heasley

This book touches on a topic that I haven’t really seen written about but something I wonder about: the privacy of kids with parents who blog.  Imogene has been in the public’s eye even before she was born, and now, at age 15, she’s beyond tired of being known as “Babylicious.”  When a school project requires Imogene to keep a blog of her own, she takes advantage of the opportunity to invade Mommylicious’ privacy.
I enjoyed the combo of first-person narrative and multi-voiced blog entries.  For the most part Imogene came across as a real teenager with emotions and an individual personality, but the way she handled the BlogHer conference came across as a more mature person’s actions, not those of a 15-year-old girl.
