This book is an important one. It gives Mental illness in tweens and teens a voice. It’s deep and sad, but it also resonates joy.
I love that Elizabeth does the occasional review for us, and I am very glad that I gave her this book to review because the message that came out of it is beautiful and on point for tween girls and boys.
Initially when I opened this book to read it I was expecting the story to be full of fashion diva’s, but I was pleasantly surprised. The story is about so much more, its all about friendship, loyalty, family, winning at all costs and the very talented Mickey.
Nate reminds me of your typically pre teen and teen (yes I am stereotyping here, and no I probably shouldn’t be), looking a little crazy in the school picture (not from lack of trying to look ‘normal’), driving teachers a little exasperated and denying he is on a date (it was the only seat left…really it was).
