Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Natalie has never felt that she's enough -- athletic enough, stylish enough, or talented enough. And on the first day of middle school, Natalie discovers that things are worse than she thought -- now she's not even cool enough for her best friend, Lily! As Natalie tries to get her best friend back, she learns more about her true self and natural talents. If Natalie can focus on who she is rather than who she isn't, then she might realize she's more than enough, just the way she is.

    Natalie loves to write and draw, but she never feels like she's good enough at anything she does. Now that middle school has started, her best friend, Lily, has pulled away and is being mean. What is Natalie going to do without her best friend in this new world of makeup, boys, and older teens? She thinks she needs to win Lily back, but friends Zoe and Flo help her realize she needs to be true to herself. When the chance arises to submit her comic book to a state-wide writing contest, she realizes that she's good enough and deserves to be happy. Debut graphic novelist Scrivan, drawing on personal experience, presents the story through Natalie's sketchbook, allowing for the occasional doodled asides to interrupt the traditionally paneled narrative. Her art employs a somewhat loose, cartoony style—bright with dappled watercolors—befitting a middle-school artist. This story of growing up is a perfect read for students new to middle school and those questioning where their talents lie. Grades 3-6. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
