Jon's out of nominations so I will go ahead and third Alice, Let's Eat. I have requested it from my library and hopefully they will deliver ...

I second Breakup. I've read books 1-6 and should this one win, well that would be convenient.

Is this gong to come down to a two book vote? Come on people two more nods for Welcome to the World, Baby Girl! to get at least three books.

I'm going to engage in a little rantiness. I thought of a good nomination, but when I checked the price, it was $11.99 on a 70-year old novel! That's insanity. It's available on OverDrive, but OD libraries are all over the spectrum in terms of holdings and there's the availability issue, also. Similarly, I love Alice, Let's Eat, but it's another backlist book that's overpriced, IMO, and with the same culprit: PRH. Nothing new here, but it certainly gums up book club nominations'

I'm with you on this. 11.99 is too much for a 70year old book.

So given that we have only two fully nominated books and one is too expensive, it seems like there's only one real choice.

This is $9.99 in the US. There's no good reason for it. Gotta love how publishers are now gouging the public. This used to be a MMPB (mass market paperback). But in order to raise prices for the pBook and the eBook, they stopped printing a MMPB version are are printing a different paperback format and are now charging $14-$15 for the pBook. This is how they get to gouge the consumers on an old book.

And yet a book you nominated is $11.99. Used to be a MMPB.

And yet a book you seconded is $9.99.

From an author who, so far as I know, was the first person to use the word "booger" in a daily newspaper column: I nominate The Worst Class Trip Ever (Class Trip, Book 1) by Dave Barry.
Quote:
From Goodreads:

In this hilarious novel, written in the voice of eighth-grader Wyatt Palmer, Dave Barry takes us on a class trip to Washington, DC. Wyatt, his best friend, Matt, and a few kids from Culver Middle School find themselves in a heap of trouble—not just with their teachers, who have long lost patience with them—but from several mysterious men they first meet on their flight to the nation's capital. In a fast-paced adventure with the monuments as a backdrop, the kids try to stay out of danger and out of the doghouse while trying to save the president from attack—or maybe not.
