For ages 12+. Mia Fullerton has earned her nickname because of her timidity among her middle school classmates. Now, as high school begins, she is determined to change her image by following the instructions in a self-help book, and inadvertently agrees to run for freshman class president at St Hilary's. She wins over her classmates by telling them to vote for 'Mia the Meek, Queen of the Freaks'. Meanwhile, she is surprised by the attention that Jake, a boy she's had her eye on for years, is paying to her since she got rid of her glasses and braces. However, she keeps finding herself daydreaming of Tim, her cocky new neighbour. Mia dates Jake, plays one-on-one basketball with Tim, maintains her grades, argues with her parents, prepares for the Academic Bowl, coordinates class-president responsibilities, and suffers through having her mother as her English teacher. The story is also full of embarrassments including falling down in the school bathroom and setting the science lab on fire.
