Squirrel Meets World by Shannon Hale

Doreen Green is just a regular fourteen-year-old girl. Well, except for one thing. She has a tail. A squirrel tail. Secretly, she calls herself Squirrel Girl. When the Micro-Manager threatens her new town, Squirrel Girl is there to save the day.

Squirrel Meets World is the first of The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl books. It is funny, exciting, and just plain fun. I read it aloud to my 9- and 11-year-old sons (and my husband and 18-year-old daughter usually joined us, too). My 11-year-old pretty much never stopped giggling. The chapters are told from various points of view and have endnotes that are Doreen’s thoughts as she reads along with us. I highly recommend reading this book. It makes a most excellent family read aloud!
