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!
