My Seventh-Grade Life in Tights by Brooks Benjamin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I found this book compelling. There’s something really cool about a group of kids doing their own thing, in their own way, and being totally okay with it. While covering topics that will make kids stop and think, it thankfully avoids cliches that can seem lesson-y. Props to Dillon and the Dizzee Freekz. And to the author, Brooks Benjamin.
I’d compare this to the YA book–of equal awesomeness–Spin the Sky by Jill Mackenzie. I’m so glad books like these exist.
