Description

New York Times best-selling author Nikki Grimes has received numerous accolades for her writing, including the Coretta Scott King Award. In Planet Middle School, 12-year-old Joylin Johnson is satisfied with her life. Everything seems pretty simple: a nice, relaxed game of basketball with the boys is all she needs to keep her happy. But it all changes when her best girl friend starts flirting with her best guy friend. Then a new, cute boy comes on the scene-and despite herself, Joylin starts acting weird just to attract his attention.

Professional reviews

"In this story of a girl in transition, basketball-loving Joylin is caught between gender norms and a changing body. Narrator Sisi Aisha Johnson's voicing is fresh and full of energy as she transforms the author's poetic lines into an aural sketch of Joylin's life, especially her family and friends. The dynamics between Joylin and her two best friends is shifting as Jake starts to see Joylin as a "girl" on and off the basketball court. Johnson's natural rhythms stay in sync with Grimes's story, making every moment of the spare text full and round. A.M.P. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
