What did you like about the book? Moving provinces and starting at a new high school is almost more than Kat can handle. Add on top of that her barely controlled anxiety issue and it’s amazing that she even manages to get to school each morning.  When a major school science project is announced, she has no idea who to team up with until Meg introduces herself. Unknown to the studious Kat, Meg has a major issue, ADHD, to deal with herself. There is one thing that draws the two together, their love of Youtube sensation Lumber Legs.

Anything you didn’t like about it?  This book is for anyone who has ever felt like they don’t belong, like they are not enough, and that their fears just might be insurmountable. This book is unflinchingly real, masterfully weaving diversity, mental health, video gaming, the brutal realities of high school, best friendship, family, and love into one delightful and heartwarming package.

To whom would you recommend this book? Middle/high school readers

Who should buy this book? Public and school libraries

Where would you shelve it? YA fiction

Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? No
