    This book is a little on the dramatic side but it was a quick read about a girl named Penelope who wants to apologize to a boy she pushed on the first day of school but does not think that she has the guts to do it.Read this book as the 2 students grow to 2 friends.

    I think Awkward opened my book variety because usually I don’t like drama, but this was full of drama and surprisingly I liked this book. I also enjoyed this book because it got to the point right away unlike some books. The last reason I really enjoyed this book is because I like how in the art and science club worked together in the end.

    I think it was a good idea for both of the clubs to build a planetarium together because it combined there skills and friend ships.

    Awkward is a really good book. it is…….AWKWARD. Because there are a lot of awkward moments with Jamie peppi’s friend which he us what bullies say a nerd and peppi tries to stop the bullies. Peppi pushed jamie down infront of the whole school that is rude.

    I really enjoyed this book even though it was and made me feel a little awkward. It is about a girl who trips and drops all her books and suddenly a “nerd” helps her pick them up. All the bullies and mean kids start calling her “nerder girlfriend” so she pushes him and then everyone laughs at him. I think Awkward was a quick read and a great book.

    I loved this book. It is a story about Peppi and her middle school life. She accidentally ran into a boy named Jamie from the science club. She thought it was really disturbing sense Peppi is in the art club. When they had there competition on who got the table at the fair Marebella stole the remote of the airplane that the science club was using what happens next?? Read the book and find out!!

    Peppi didn’t mean to yell at and shove Jamie. She was just embarrassed because the mean kids were calling her “nerder girlfriend”. I felt bad for Jamie because he’s a “nerd” and he’s always alone and he has no friends until Peppi apologized. I also felt bad for Meribella because her dad wants her to be the best and smartest and she wants her dad to be proud of her but she just can’t do it. This book was very well written and I really enjoyed reading it.

    I like the book awkward its about this girl that runs right into this boy and she thinks its awkward because every body looked at her. So that is what the book is about.

  20. cydy eg says:

    I think that this book is interesting. I really don’t understand why the bullies call Peppi, ‘nerder girlfriend’.
    It’s a bit weird.

  21. Zoe C says:

    Awkward is a book about a girl who bumps into a ” nerd” and then gets made fun of because she tries to help him. She ends up shoving him. The avoided each other until he is her tutor.

  22. Caseyt says:

    I think this book is a bit awkward. I think Peppy didn’t mean to scream at Jamie. But she was just so embarrassed because every one was making fun of Peppy.
