Gosh, I REALLY love this book! I don't usually read comic books....I'm more of a scifi and fantasy person. But Awkward, well, the title drew me in and I thought why not give it a shot. TURNS OUT I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! I checked it out from my amazing local library and read it like five times in three days and then kept visiting my favorite parts. I think why I really like it is because Peppi's emotions are so dramatic but it also is like a regular middle school. There are rival clubs, fairs, sweet field trips, and friends! Even if you don't like comic books, I would TOTALLY give this one a try!
