is clever and brave and true (on the inside, anyway). And she's about to become your new best friend.
Annemarie Wilcox, or Shug as her family calls her, is beginning to think there's nothing worse than being twelve. She's too tall, too freckled, and way too flat-chested. Shug is sure that there's not one good or amazing thing about her. And now she has to start junio...more
Annemarie Wilcox, known to her family as Shug, is twelve-years old, tall, flat-chested, and nowhere near the type of girl she wants to be. Shug also believes that, ow that she's twelve, she's at the perfect age to receive her first kiss, and she knows just who she wants to give it to her--her best friend, Mark Findley, the true and actual boy-next-door. Well, actually, the boy down the street, but it's close enough. The only problem is that Mark doesn't show an...more

Shug is about a girl moving from elementary to middle school and all of the emotions and tribulations that come with that. I can distinctly remember being that age. Everything felt so important and everything is the end of the world. Shug is a lot like...more
I remember I wanted to read this, but our library had lost their copy, and boy was I excited when I saw it on Miss Leslie's virtual bookshelf! I was utterly engrossed in Shug's world from the first chapter, mainly because it so reminded me of my childhood. I had SEVERAL "best friends" when I was younger, and three of them were from my 13 house cul-de-sac...and were boys. I spent more hours in Brian, B...more
And if that's not enough, her home life isn't that great, what with a near-alcoholic mother, a father who is never home, and a beautiful high-school sister who doesn't seem to do anything wrong.
Plus, is it just Annemarie's imagination, or is Elaine slipping away, and is Mark starting to ignore her.
It's not. Elaine soon become good friend...more
I picked up this book because I found the title to be interesting and after reading the description, very relatable. Shug is...more
I really did not like this book. I believe that the reason I didn’t like it was because I absolutely hated the main character, Annemarie. Another name Annemarie was known by was Shug. She was so insecure and always felt her life was the worst thing you could ever imagine. I just wanted to jump...more
The main character in this book is Annemarie, also known as Shug. I think Annemarie didn’t have the best qualities so that’s why I didn’t like her that much. I also feel that because I didn’t like the main character is why I didn’t enjoy the book. Shug was to self conscious and cared too much about what people think about...more
Corto,lindo, divertido y conmovedor.
No sé que tiene este libro pero realmente me gusto. Annemarie- alias, Shug- piensa mucho, dice poco y cuando dice algo... bueno, no siempre es lo mas correcto.
El libro comienza de inmediato. En al primera página te dice sobre que esta Shug esta enamorad de Mark, su mejor amigo. La verdad, es que Shug decía que era su mejor amigo y todo eso, pero yo nunca vi la razón por la que era su mejor amigo. Nunca l...more
Shug worries about all of the things I worried about in middle school - is she getting asked to the dance, invited to the sleepover, will she ever get kissed by the boy she likes, and will the girls she is friends with stay friends with her as popularity enters the picture.
I really appreciated the treatment of the var...more
