Wonder

WonderAugust has a facial deformity that prevents him from going to primary school up until 5th grade, and whatever you think he looks like, it’s probably worse. Then in 5th grade at Breecher Prep, he gets gossiped about a lot. I like the style of picking different characters for each chapter. My favorite scene is when he goes on a field trip. This was the best book I’ve read since Stargirl! This book reminds me of myself.  [the_only_word_to_describe_me_is_swag]

TTYL

TTYLThese 3 best friends in high school who have known each other since 6th grade go through an adventure with their lives. When one of them has to move, their whole world falls apart! They go through all kinds of things. I would tell you more but I don’t want to tell the best part!  I think this was the best drama book ever, it is now my favorite book!  [uniheartsbelike]

The Popularity Papers

Popularity PapersA girl named Julie wants to be popular, but her friend was trying to tell her that being popular is not really good because you’re just acting like someone else.  Just be yourself!  Julie learns her lesson – she gets sad and listens to her friend.  My favorite character is Julie because her friend Melody was telling her right, just be yourself and don’t embarrass yourself.  Also, be a leader and not a follower.  [be your self]

How To Rock Braces and Glasses

How To Rock Braces and GlassesSuper popular Kacey Simon is at the top of the food chain in high school, friends with the prettiest girls and with her very own show on the morning news, giving “advice” to those who need it. She tells the cold, hard truth, and no one really likes her for it, as she has never learned to hold her tongue. Everything changes when she gets braces and (temporary) glasses. She goes straight down to the bottom of the food chain, and her so-called “friends” want revenge.

I really enjoyed this book because it was from the point of view of a stereotypical mean girl. This really provided a new way to look at the story as she tries to get back to the top.  [Bill Cipher /?]

Stuck in the Middle

Stuck in the MiddleThis book has seventeen comics from seventeen different authors. It’s all about being in middle school, making friends, and being the new kid.  It’s a good graphic novel because it has a whole bunch of short stories in it. My favorite story is “Never Go Home” because it’s about a boy who runs away and meets a girl. The girl makes him want to go home. I love this book, it’s awesome.  [pixiestix123]

Page by Paige

Page by PaigePaige Turner (yes, that’s her name – her parents are writers) has just moved to Manhattan with her parents and cat, Harvey. She used to live in the country, and is now far away from all of her friends, the only people which she could be herself around.

This book is by far one of my favorite graphic novels. The characters are easy to relate to, especially Paige, with whom I share some similar qualities: I have a hard time coming out of my shell as well, and I love to draw.  [Bill Cipher /?]

Heaven Looks a Lot Like the Mall

Heaven Looks a Lot Like the MallThis teenage girl named Tessa gets hit in the head playing dodgeball (in school). She hits the gym floor hard and the last thing she remembers is the janitor cleaning her blood off the gym floor. Now she is soaring in heaven, or what she thinks is heaven, because it looks like the mall her parents work at. She takes a nap on the bench near the Cinnabon and she is at the hospital.   So a boy with a Drill bit in his head pulls on her oxygen cord so now she is reliving all things importing in her life.

This is one of these books that if you skip ahead, you won’t know what happened. It’s a great book, I love the way the author wrote it.  [beviediva]
