Frazzled: Everyday Disasters and Impending Doom by Booki Vivat


Description (from Goodreads)

Meet Abbie Wu! She’s about to start middle school and she’s totally in crisis.

Abbie Wu is in crisis—and not just because she’s stuck in a family that doesn’t quite get her or because the lunch ladies at school are totally corrupt or because everyone seems to have a “Thing” except her. Abbie Wu is in crisis always.

Heavily illustrated and embarrassingly honest, Frazzled dives right into the mind of this hilariously neurotic middle school girl as she tries to figure out who she is, where she belongs, and how to survive the everyday disasters of growing up. With Abbie’s flair for the dramatic and natural tendency to freak out, middle school has never seemed so nerve-racking!

Packed with hilarious black-and-white illustrations and doodles throughout, Frazzled takes readers through Abbie Wu’s hysterical middle school adventures.

My thoughts

Abbie Wu is dramatic. Overly dramatic. Abbie Wu is every girl growing up. And the illustrations in this book are fantastic. This book was funny. Laugh out loud funny. I highly recommend because…doodles (of course).

And what does any of this have to do with peace?

Frazzled is one of those feel good books where you’re rooting hard for the protagonist, and we’re excited  when the tide begins to turn in her favour. A cleverly crafted book with tons of hilarious twists. I’m looking forward to reading the second book in the series.
