Awkward: 02/07/19


Awkward by Svetlana Chmakova is the first graphic novel in a series about middle school. It begins with Peppi Torres breaking her cardinal rule: don't get noticed by the mean kids. She does this by accidentally knocking over Jaime Thompson. Now she's been dubbed his "nerder girl friend."

Despite the rough introduction, Peppi does manage to find friends and more importantly apologize to Jaime. It turns out she and he have a lot in common.

It's a sweet book similar in tone and humor as Frazzled: Everyday Disasters and Impending Doom by Booki Vivat.

The second book is Brave (2017), which I am currently reading.

Five stars
