children's middlegrade graphic fiction (1st in what I hope is a series) - Now that her recently retired Air Force dad works as a renovation contractor (a business co-owned with his best friend), they can finally stay in one place long enough for 12 y.o. Charlie Harper to make some long-term friends--and she plans to make a good impression (different clothes, different hairstyle, contact lenses) for her first day of middle school.

A funny graphic novel with appealing drawings and relatable characters, should be a hit with the kids at the library. The name of the city is not given, but it is near enough to NYC for some designer-names to show up in the thrift store, similar to Jersey City, where the author lives.

This was a book about being yourself. Friends are hard to make it at any age but when you spend your life constantly being the new kid, making friends can be hard to do. Coming into a new school three weeks after start makes it even harder. This is a sweet graphic novel about not only being a good friend but about being yourself. It’s got a great message and a fun story for any age.

Oh, I absolutely loved this! Right away, the adorable art style and Charlie’s struggle to make friends drew me in. She goes through embarrassing mishaps and so much lying trying to be accepted. Charlie, like a lot of us, is in her head a lot. There’s also a cute crush in the background.

Something unique is the book addresses what happens when a parent who has been absent (as in work, deployment, etc) changes the dynamic of the home once they return full-time. I don’t think I have seen many children’s stories cover this.

OR, having a social butterfly for a parent as a child who has difficulty connecting to others. Sometimes, the parent doesn't realize social interactions don't come easy to the child.

Moral: You don’t have to pretend to be someone else to be liked.
