Awkward Review by 8th Grade Joseph April 19, 2018

Awkward is a graphic novel by Svetlana Chmakova.  Joseph

The reason I like it is because of how the story is played out.

A girl named Penelope accidentally trips in the hall on the first day of middle school. A boy named Jamie tries to help her and soon everybody starts laughing at her and so she pushes him and then they all laugh at him. She is trying to apologize to him but she thinks he hates her so she can’t apologize. Meanwhile, the club she in is being denied a table at the club fair and the science club is getting it.  So, the art and the science clubs go to war over the club fair. People must stop it before it gets out of hand. Will she succeed or will she caught in war?
