Worse Than Weird
But Mac discovers more than just clues during her cross-city sprint—like how her weird parents might not be the worst thing compared to the circumstances of those around her.
With the same humor and hope of her debut novel, Mostly the Honest Truth, Jody J. Little gives readers another spunky, unforgettable character to root for.
The idea of living in a tiny house is an interesting one, and I think younger readers would have benefited from more of a description/explanation of Mac's home. I liked that the story started out quickly, but Mac's house was so interesting that I wanted to know more. The same goes for the food truck contest-- my town doesn't have food trucks except at festivals, so the idea that they are just hanging around in the streets was fascinating
Worse Than Weird wasn't that weird, but it was a bit quirky. I always enjoy books that show me how people go about their daily lives in an environment different from my own. Hand this to readers who want to see how other people live and who enjoyed books like Respicio's The House That Lou Built, Nielsen's No Fixed Address, and Svetcov's Parked.
