bookshelves: ya, sixth-graders
Read in February, 2008

Eighth grade Tess sees many things with math metaphors, like her friendships are venn diagram intersections and questions with no solutions are DNE (Does Not Exist) questions. I am starting to grow a deep appreciation for the middle school genre, and when I think about books like this one, and Emma Jean Lazarus Fell Out of a Tree, and even Cirque Du Freak, I realize that they are totally opening up a space for kids to be self-accepting as they learn there are many different ways to be an okay person. I really like Tess's way.
