Shug is one of the best realistic fiction books I've ever read. In this laugh-out-loud novel, dig into the brain of a 12-year-old. Discover what it feels like when the world around you is changing in all different ways.
Shug tells the story of 12-year-old Annemarie, a small town girl who's about to go into middle school. Things are changing and she doesn't like it. Her friends have boyfriends, her mother is an alcoholic, her dad is never home, and now she's falling for Mark, her best friend. The only thing is, Mark isn't falling for her. Will Annemarie win the heart of Mark?
I highly recommend this book.
