Book of the day 05/14/2016

Chmakova, Svetlana. 
New York : Yen Press, 2016
Peppi Torres knows that her  first day as a “new kid” in middle school is going to be difficult, but when she starts out by tripping into a not-so-popular boy, and then getting teased about being “nerder girlfriend”, it becomes downright AWKWARD. Peppi tries to manage the crisis by: * pushing away any of the boy’s attempts at friendship to make sure no one thinks she “likes” him, and * joining the art club, to get to know kids who like the same things she does. But, she’s feeling guilty about being mean to someone who was just trying to be nice to her, and her beloved art club is being threatened with closure due to a “prank” they pulled on their rivals, the science club. Will Peppi’s first year at Berrybrook Middle School end as awkwardly as it began, or will she figure out a way to smooth things out? Once you start reading Awkward, you won’t want to put it down until you find out! (Booktalk by New Hampshire GSF Committee)
