Description

First-time novelist Jenny Han has penned a realistic story that all middle-graders will surely be able to relate to. Meet 12-year-old Annemarie "Shug" Wilcox. What's not to like about her? She's smart, she's tall, and she has lots of freckles. She lives in a small Georgia town with her popular, gorgeous older sister and intellectual mother. Shug is excited about starting the seventh-grade, but she's not prepared for all the vicious teasing that comes with the new school year. "Han's well-crafted first novel captures the aching hurt of exclusion in middle school, and the acute pain of vicious teasing."-Booklist

Professional reviews

"Annemarie is a late-blooming 12-year-old who feels out of step with the rest of the world. She feels inadequate next to her beautiful older sister, embarrassed by her alcoholic mother, and deserted by her mostly absent father. Looking forward to starting middle school, she is, at the same time, confused by new rules and social roles. Han's language is spot-on; she clearly has a sense of the excitement, confusion, and mystery of the almost-teen--eager to be adult one minute and missing childhood the next. Unfortunately, Liz Morton's performance does not do justice to this realistic first-person story. Shug's voice, which should be vibrant and alive, comes across as flat and bored. N.E.M.
