8TH GRADE SUPERZERO by Olugbemi Rhuday-Perkovich (say that fast three times in a row!) stayed with me for a long time after I read it. It’s a funny, genuine, and uplifting story. I liked how the friendships portrayed are deep, complex, and multi-layered. The novel is about coping with peer pressure gracefully, and making life-changing choices.
It was on Amazon’s best books of the month list for January, 2010! Win a signed copy by leaving a comment after my xillion prizes giveaway post.
