really liked it

Spider Brains is a cute coming of age story about a girl who endures serious abuse from one teacher at school and teasing from her peers due to her ADHD. However, when a spider bites her she gains control over her ADHD and her ability to do well in school improves in all her classes but one. Through it all she learns lessons about friendship, loyalty, and coping with loss.

This is a cute story, kind of Spiderman meets Charlotte’s web. It is a smooth read with beautifully descriptive language and many laugh out loud moments. My 13 year old son read it and thought it was “cool, but would have been better if it was about a boy instead of a girl. And she should have been able to poison the teacher.” My son is still in the boys are cool and girls are gross stage. And since I already have a 16 year old girl with boy crazy friends I’m good with waiting on having a girl crazy boy.

I give this book 4 out of 5 clouds.
