Genre: Middlr Grade
My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
This was a silly and entertaining read, with some laugh out loud moments. It kind of reminded me of Diary of a wimpy kid.
Middle grade can be pretty brutal and kids aren’t always nice, especially when something embarrassing happens!
I found Pipi to be a relatable character and liked that she had a blended family, which is pretty common these days.
Kudos to the author for writing such diverse characters and backgrounds without shoving it down your throat or making it feel forced.
The pacing was a tad slow at times, but overall it was an enjoyable read. I particularly liked the drawing of bacon with boobies! 😜
The first eight years of Penelope McGee’s education have been a curriculum in humiliation. Now she is on a quest for redemption, and a little bit of revenge.
From her kindergarten self-portrait as a bacon with boobs, to fourth grade when she peed her pants in the library thanks to a stuck zipper to seventh grade where…well, she doesn’t talk about seventh grade. Ever.
After hearing the guidance counselor lecturing them on how high school will be a clean slate for everyone, Pipi–fearing that her eight humiliations will follow her into the halls of Northbrook High School–decides to use her last year in middle school to right the wrongs of her early education and save other innocents from the same picked-on, laughed-at fate. Pipi McGee is seeking redemption, but she’ll take revenge, too.
