I’m going to be honest, when I first found this book I thought that I knew everything inside of it just from the description. But I quickly came to learn that this book has lots more to it. It is full of layers and little bits of gold that I never thought I would find. This book is hilarious and sweet and shows us that sometimes the best way to be okay is to allow yourself to not be okay. A masterpiece from the first chapter and on, this book perfectly captures all the drama and awkwardness that is middle school life.
