Okay, big disclaimer, I’m the middle kid in my family – just like the main character in this book. So yeah – I liked this book. But even if you are not a middle kid, that does not mean you won’t like this book, because everybody has experienced bad frazzled days. Abbie Wu, the main character, is going though middle school sandwiched between her perfect older brother and her cutie pie younger sister. Her life is not easy. But the author makes it funny to read about Abbie’s challenges. She turns Abbie’s frustrations into funny stories that all kids will recognize: challenging teachers, mean next door neighbors, grumpy old people who don’t understand you: it is all here. And bonus, it is an easy read, too! Actually, despite the subject – middle school – the book might really be more suited to an elementary school kid like me. I read this book in one day. If you like light hearted comedy this book is a must read. I really enjoyed it!

Description


An instant New York Times bestseller, Booki Vivat's Frazzled is the first installment of a funny middle grade graphic novel series about a girl who is always in a tizzy.

"Hilarious." (NPR's All Things Considered)

"Honest, sweet, and laugh-out-loud funny. Fans of Smile and Diary of a Wimpy Kid will appreciate this debut." (Brightly.com)

Meet Abbie Wu. Abbie is in crisis--and not just because she's starting middle school or because she's stuck in a family that doesn't quite get her or because everyone seems to have a Thing except her. Abbie Wu is always in crisis.

From author and professional doodler Booki Vivat, Frazzled dives right into the mind of this hilariously neurotic middle school girl as she tries to figure out who she is and where she belongs. Akin to Smile by Raina Telgemeier, Frazzled is heavily illustrated, embarrassingly honest, and sure to appeal to anyone in the middle of figuring out how to survive the everyday disasters of growing up.
