Description

First-time novelist Jenny Han has penned a realistic story that all middle-graders will surely be able to relate to. Meet 12-year-old Annemarie "Shug" Wilcox. What's not to like about her? She's smart, she's tall, and she has lots of freckles. She lives in a small Georgia town with her popular, gorgeous older sister and intellectual mother. Shug is excited about starting the seventh-grade, but she's not prepared for all the vicious teasing that comes with the new school year. "Han's well-crafted first novel captures the aching hurt of exclusion in middle school, and the acute pain of vicious teasing." –Booklist

      • content: Annemarie is a late-blooming 12-year-old who feels out of step with the rest of the world. She feels inadequate next to her beautiful older sister, embarrassed by her alcoholic mother, and deserted by her mostly absent father. Looking forward to starting middle school, she is, at the same time, confused by new rules and social roles. Han's language is spot-on; she clearly has a sense of the excitement, confusion, and mystery of the almost-teen--eager to be adult one minute and missing childhood the next. Unfortunately, Liz Morton's performance does not do justice to this realistic first-person story. Shug's voice, which should be vibrant and alive, comes across as flat and bored. N.E.M.

        April 17, 2006
        Han's heartfelt first novel persuasively expresses the woes of Annemarie "Shug" Wilcox during her first year of junior high. As the boys and girls at school start warming up to each other, flat-chested, freckle-faced Shug finds herself left out in the cold. Her best friend, Elaine, is "wrapped up" in her relationship with new boyfriend Hugh, while the boy Shug likes—longtime friend Mark—has started to act distant towards her. To add insult to injury, he asks another girl to the upcoming seventh-grade dance. Meanwhile, tensions mount in the Wilcox household as fights between Shug's parents (caused by her father's prolonged absences and her mother's drinking binges) intensify. Shug feels all alone, like she's the only seventh grader with problems, until she is assigned to tutor her nemesis, Jack, who, as it turns out, can relate to her troubles. With its distinct Southern flavor, its presentation of universal conflicts and a cast of characters sure to be recognizable to readers, this book will likely draw a wide audience. If themes are a little well worn, the author refrains from offering a conventional, sugar-coated ending that ties up all loose ends. Yet the heroine gains enough self-confidence and self-esteem to suggest that the rest of her ride through junior high will probably be less bumpy. Ages 10-14.
