BRB I'm Going to Disneyland
Over the course of the annual 8th grade trip to Disneyland-one epic day filled with misunderstandings, miscommunications, and mixed messages-the group of friends break up, make up, and ultimately end up stronger than ever.
With a magical mix of Disney moments and realistic tween friendship, this novel told entirely in texts, emails, and social media posts is perfect for reluctant readers.
It is really quite interesting how texts can be as informative as they are shown to be in this book. Even people who don't text all of the time will be able to see how much can be focused on in a short text. For the eighth graders in this book, it is almost like they have learned another language, and it does show how it is easier than it might seem to be concise with one's words when written in text format.
The fact that it took place at Disneyland only added to the fun of the story as readers were taken on a “tour” of sorts through the park. A fun read for anyone who enjoys texting or feeling as though they are at one of the happiest places on Earth.
