Becca likes to talk and tends to share too much about herself and her friends with others.  When she kisses and tells a bit too much about her first boyfriend, Becca learns how much that can hurt.  In an attempt to control her oversharing, she decides to write an anonymous blog as a diary to help keep her thoughts more private.  With friends Katie and Jai by her side, Becca navigates this highschool drama with character.  A cute, if not overly reaching, highschool novel.

TMI was soo fun to read. The plot was hilarious and very believable. I happen to know someone who feels the need to share every little thing like Becca does so it was interesting to see things from that point of view. I also live in a small (actually microscopic would be a better word) town so I could relate to how everyone has to know everyone else's business. Basically, there is no such thing as keeping secrets, even if you wanted to. I could also relate to being repulsed by the guys in the 'Rod and Gun Club' because every single guy at my high school acts exactly like that. Sad, right?
    This novel had some of the best writing I've seen in awhile. The plot was original and it kept me interested. I was hooked from the first page. Literally. The first line of the first chapter was so random/crazy/funny I just had to keep reading. An important quality I like to see in the books I read is being able relate to the characters and this one definitely had that for me.
    I really enjoyed reading this book and I highly recommend it. I'm looking forward to reading more from Sarah Quigley in the future!

Becca has a habit, though she never knew it would get her in so much trouble. You see, she tells more than she has to. Many times in her life, she has been told, Too much information, Becca. Shes sick of it. When she blabs about her boyfriends uncomfortable kisses, she gets dumped. As a New Years Resolution, she stops telling too much information so instead she starts an anyomous blog to get her feelings out while sparing embarrassment. On her blog, she admits her crush, reveals her friends biggest secret, and makes fun of many of her classmates. Then it strikes Becca. What if someones & reading it?


TMI has everything I didnt expect. I was highly disappointed. It sounded sweet and the cover looked happy and welcoming. But looks can be deceiving. The writing really was great but I think Author Sarah Quigleys talent didnt get put to good use. Reading the book made me feeling uncomfortable and I actually contemplated not finishing it but the voice in the back of my mind said I owe it to the publisher.


I loved some of the characters personalities, especially Beccas bubbly one, though I didnt like the things she said and had in her mind. Though the main idea of this book is unique and inviting, main ideas of the story (that havent been included in the synopsis or in any review of it Ive read) were disturbing. I couldnt look passed those pages and those ruined it for me & especially since it was stretched across several chapters.


Contains the following:


*sexual references and content


*homosexuality
