Book Overview

Cardinal rule #1 for surviving school: Don't get noticed by the mean kids.
Cardinal rule #2 for surviving school: Seek out groups with similar interests and join them.
On her first day at her new school, Penelope--Peppi--Torres reminds herself of these basics. But when she trips into a quiet boy in the hall, Jaime Thompson, she's already broken the first rule, and the mean kids start calling her the nerder girlfriend. How does she handle this crisis? By shoving poor Jaime and running away
Falling back on rule two and surrounding herself with new friends in the art club, Peppi still can't help feeling ashamed about the way she treated Jaime. Things are already awkward enough between the two, but to make matters worse, he's a member of her own club's archrivals--the science club And when the two clubs go to war, Peppi realizes that sometimes you have to break the rules to survive middle school

   Awkward is Awesome
I bought this book for my 11 year old daughter and she absolutely loved it. I asked her to write a review and she did it. Awkward is awesome. I'm in sixth grade and I've just started a new school, so I can totally relate to the beginning, she said. The chemistry teacher also said that the relationship between the art club and the science club was so funny. So basically what I'm here to say is I love this book and recommend it to anyone who likes graphic novels with a bit of comedy, said Blair.

   Incredible graphic novel with some moldy pages
However, the book came with a few pages that had mold on them and were not printed so the whole story was not delivered. I'm really hoping Amazon will send us a new one, Mr. Dhaliwal said.

My third grader absolutely loves the book. A few of her classmates have since borrowed the book, boys and girls, and she said other kids in class have asked to borrow it next. I love anything that draws her into reading, and I think that's great.

   Good story!
Except that all the kids start making fun of them by calling her Nerder Girlfriend. The girl is seen in the video pushing the boy and causing him to fall to his knees. The nurse calls her "guilty" afterward. Peppi tries to avoid the boy because it's just so awkward. Peppi acts so hilarious around the boy, making him giggle. The illustrations are great. But when she flunks science, guess who ends up being her tutor? There was also a very nasty fight between the Art and Science Club, causing the whole thing to get out of hand. The panels can sometimes get a little chaotic and there are times when there is too much text to read. A good story, too, said Blair.

   Novela gráfica
Awkward, el primer libro de la saga Berrybrook Middle School de Chmakova, me pareci precioso. Conjunto con la historia, el sencillo de su dibujo es el conjunto de personas y el desarrollo de personajes. Desde es un cmic que he estado prestando, pero lo que recomiendo para nios y estudiantes de secundaria tienes 100 aos.

   A little inappropriate
My daughter likes it, but I don't like that it's teaching kids that is normal for a husband to curse to the wife in front of the kids. What a great idea!

   It was pretty good! 👍🏻
Liked it, said Blair. It was just there was a lot of fighting between two groups and it kinda just got annoying, but overall it was a good book, Simon said.

   Cute Cute
I'm always trying to find books for kids that they will enjoy. They loved a different series that was also written in this sort of graphic novel style, so I crossed my fingers that they'd like these as well. They did enjoy the books, so that was nice, too, Mr. Rule told the judge. They were also less relatable than the other series, and they said these were more “fake” type of fiction. I love when I can find books they can actually relate to because middle school girls have it not so easy. I wish these had been something that spoke to them more so they might have enjoyed them even more, but they did read them when bored, so they have an entertainment quality to them, he said.

   So Good!
I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It pretty much sums up what some schools can be like, Mr. Rule told the judge. This book is recommended to small children to encourage them to work together.
