Verbally abused by her bipolar and alcoholic father and mercilessly bullied at school, Peregrine Storke uses her art talent to create Awkward, a world where nothing is wrong and everyone is happy. When she and her best friend’s brother drown in an accident, they are thrown into Awkward where things aren’t quite going so well.
The Story of Awkward is weird. It is also very enjoyable and uses a fairy tale to gently teach a lesson about acceptance and loving yourself. By about a quarter of the way through, I could barely put it down. I recommend it to teens and adults alike!
