     Friends call Becca the Overshare Queen, but her tendency for TMI never seemed like a problem to her until she blabs about her sweet band-geek boyfriend's sloppy kisses - and gets dumped! Realizing it may be better to resist the temptation to overshare face-to-face, Becca decides to blog anonymously about everything instead. On her blog, Too Much Information, Becca unleashes her alter ego, Bella. Bella tells it like it is . . . though perhaps with a bit more drama. After all, no one's going to read it, right??
        Becca is known for one thing, sharing too much information. She blabs about everything to everyone and can't seem to stop. Her mouth gets her into big trouble when it results in her being dumped. As a way to vent her "tmi" thoughts she starts a blog that no one will ever read.

       Becca is hilarious, her narration is bubbly and makes me smile. There are moments were I want to cringe for her sake but she is a likeable character. Her friends are likeable too. Kate and Jai have awesome personalities and  are good friends that accept Becca even with her overshare tendencies. 
   I like the way the story is written. Becca's upbeat voice makes everything funnier and the story more enjoyable. The plot is cute but some events are predictable. TMI made me laugh and was a good book.
