To be honest, it's hard to think what's not to love in this book.
Junior reminds me of Greg Heffley (of Diary of a Wimpy Kid fame) as a high schooler. This kid is hilarious and heart breaking all at once. Before I read this book, I had no idea how this was possible. After, I just wanted to be Junior's friend. This kid needs someone to laugh at his jokes AND give him a hug. I loved seeing Junior's cartoons (which are throughout the book) and being able to see his passion for art.
Anyone who loves a story about growing up, art, basketball or trying to find yourself will love this book. Actually, I think anyone who has a soul will love this book!
I'm a teen services librarian, so I get to read the best books (meaning young adult fiction) in the library. I keep a hot dog-related bucket list of places in the USA I want to visit and dine at during my life. Other passions and faves include roller derby, slow cookers, car/scooter repair and pop culture. Oh, and I would like to meet your dog.
