Middle school student Jenae has a number of worries on her plate, her grandfather is behaving strangely, she thinks she’s to blame for her brother losing out on a basketball career and her new English teacher insists on practicing public speaking in class which is beyond uncomfortable for Jenae, but with the help of family and a friend, and with a cause worth fighting for, she just might make it through okay.

Jenae’s charcuterie style lunches along with her feelings at the prospect of speaking publicly, the nervous stomach, playing sick from school, that was so me as a kid (actually it’s pretty close to adult me, too), I could definitely relate. Although Jenae’s arc was a tiny bit predictable in how it unfolded, the pacing mattered more to me, and the author did a really good job of making any changes in Jenae feel gradual and well motivated.

Aubrey, Jenae’s friend, got on my nerves somewhat saying “sway” and “quack”, still I liked their friendship, I liked that they both make mistakes with one another yet they’re willing to listen and forgive.

While I enjoyed all the family scenes, my favorites featured Jenae with her grandfather, the emotional bond they share came through so clearly and I really liked how their relationship tied into the controversy over her school’s name.

I’m glad I gave this book a try, I loved Jenae and as an added bonus I learned about Sylvia Mendez, a history changer who should be more well known. ( )

Jenae has long been friendless and is supposedly okay with that. She may eat lunch alone at school but at home she has her grandpa Gee, her mother and older brother Malcolm. Then Aubrey is the new kid at school. When he sees she also has an Astrid Dane bag (their favorite cartoon) he exuberantly latches on to Jenae, much to her dismay because she doesn't need friends after all. The friendship is tentative on her part but having someone to laugh with begins to have appeal. However a debate assignment in class has Jenae panicked and she's willing to lose Aubrey's friendship in order to avoid presenting the debate. Jenae and Aubrey are a couple of lost souls in their own ways. Their coming together has a certain natural rapport so that when Jenae plans to betray her friend, it is painful to consider the outcome. ( )
