Solid graphic novel for the 3rd-6th grader who enjoys books by Raina Telgemeier, Terri Libenson, Victoria Jameson and Shannon Hale. The story line is simple and straight forward—nerdy girl enters middle school and loses her best friend to a more popular student—and since most in the targeted age group have experienced that, readers will easily make connections. Scrivan’s artwork is bold and although definitely in ...more
A friendship book with themes of being who you are and what real friendship means will resonate with kids in elementary. Was hoping for a bit more depth into the characters, but my 5ths will enjoy this a lot.
Natalie is starting middle school, but over the summer her best friend Lily has moved across town and befriended a much cooler girl and is being downright mean, calling Natalie a nerd. When we see flashbacks of Natalie's memories, we know that Lily has always been a bit this way, and wasn't a great friend to begin with.

Thank you to @mariascrivan and @scholasticinc for sharing an advance copy of Nat Enough with the #KidLitExchange network. This middle grades graphic novel will be released in April 2020. All opinions are my own.

This book reminded me of Terri Libenson books, and also maybe a bit of the comic strip Luann? Something about the cat and dog jokes on the new chapter ...more
I didn’t have any input on the book though so my opinions are 100% based on reading it for this first time.
But overall it was a really cute graphic novel! Nat speaks to me with her story, as I had a similar thing happen to me a couple of times. It took her a while to sort things out, and the resolutions did feel a bit rushed, but given the page count I thought it was super cute.
In this day and age I ...more
Addressing the friendship and self-esteem issues that so many middle grade readers encounter, this graphic novel is perfect for students in grades 3+.
Humor is delivered throughout the novel via the main character (Natalie’s) pet dog & cat. Message received: be the best you that you can be!
Appreciated the author’s note at the beginning and will definitely purchase for my 4/5th graders ...more
Great back-story humour through keeps this from going too dark, but a good read for Raina fans.
So true to middle school. I see this take place all the time with my students. I loved the characters, loved their voices, and cannot wait to get this into students’ hands!
