Shannons got a sure spot in the in-crowd called The Group, and her best friend is their leader, Jen, the most popular girl in school.

This is definitely a new favorite. This graphic novel memoir expertly highlights the trials and tribulations of 6th grade, including complicated friendships, self-perception, anxiety, and issues around representation.

Holy moly, this book has sooooo many good passages! Hard to pick just one (or even a few) to share. Hale has an uncanny ability to articulate the things I struggled with as a kid but could never quite name. This book is brilliant.

This was fantastic! If you know a kid in 5th or 6th or 7th grade, get this book in their hands. This is the kind of book that I wished I‘d had back in the day to help me make better sense of friendships in those weird pre-adolescent years.

Katja Also check out Shannon Hale and LeUyen Pham‘s first graphic memoir collab, Real Friends. It‘s equally wonderful. 3mo

Whenever the kids I babysit get another book by Shannon Hale I get so excited. This one and Real Friends really captures much of the way I felt growing up. Anxiety about everything, intrusive thoughts, having a hard time making friends or knowing all the social rules. It‘s comforting in a way to know you aren‘t alone, especially when anxiety makes you feel that way.
