really liked it
bookshelves: contemporary, middle-grade

I wish I had this book when I was younger. See, younger me had all these allergies (peanuts and eggs like Nina, but also lots of others) and was constantly told, "OMG, you can't eat shrimp?! Or peanut butter?! Or ice cream?!?!?! I feel so bad for you. You're really missing out." And I'd just nod my head and turn back to my allergy-friendly food. I never had anyone my age that could relate, but my friends were always kind enough to not pack peanut butter sandwiches or at least warn me when they did.

But anyway, I really enjoyed My Year of Epic Rock. It was honest and everything about her allergies and how she felt and dealt with them felt real to me. Yes, it's definitely written for younger kids, possibly elementary-school-kids, but I think that anyone who's had to carry around an EpiPen everywhere they go would appreciate Nina's story.
