By the author of Smile!



By: Raina Telgemeier

Genre: Juvenile Graphic novel

Pages: 233

Published: 2012

Read: December

2 out of 5

I think this is one of those books that needs to be read when you are the same age as the protagonists.  While I do remember the drama of my own junior high years, I just found this book silly. I was looking forward to reading it after reading Telgemeier's other graphic novel, Smile which I really enjoyed. Her artwork is good and the colored illustrations is a nice change of pace from the black-and-white of most graphic novels. However, I was disappointed in the story after reading Smile. Ironically, Smile is a biographical graphic novel :) I would recommend this book to junior high girls, especially reluctant readers.
