Following the overwhelming success of AWKWARD and BRAVE, Svetlana Chmakova's award winning Berrybrook Middle School series continues with its next installment - CRUSH!

Jorge seems to have it all together. He's big enough that nobody really messes with him, but he's also a genuinely sweet guy with a solid, reliable group of friends. The only time he ever really feels off his game is when he crosses paths with a certain girl... But when the group dynamic among the boys starts to shift, will Jorge be able to balance what his friends expect of him versus what he actually wants?

          It was a great book. Jorge seems to have it all together. He's big enough that nobody really messes with him, but he's also a genuinely sweet guy with a solid, reliable group of friends. The only time he ever really feels off his game is when he crosses paths with a certain girl... But when the group dynamic among the boys starts to shift, will Jorge be able to balance what his friends expect of him versus what he actually wants? Such a good book!

            i agree the book was really good mostly because jorge is normally the tough guy to others but to his friends hes genuine. so its nice to see him react to having a crush.

              #ReadItAllImmediately! This book is the next book in the Awkward series, a personal favorite of mine! Jorge is used to being the "bully police". Everything is balanced: school, sports, homework...and then, there's Jazamine. Jorge tries to figure out why he acts so weird around her without meaning to. Answer: He has a crush on her! So begins the AWKWARD (book number one) journey where Jourge has to be BRAVE (book number two) and figure out how in the world to deal with his very-first CRUSH. This is a book that teaches lots of lessons, not just how to talk to your crush, but also the importance of cyber bullying and treating others with respect. Feast on this quick, entertaining read! Enjoy!
