Peppi is a young girl who doesn't fit anywhere except her art club. Her first day of school she embarrasses herself and ends up hurting the feelings of the nerdiest kid in school. This boy, Jamie, ends up joining the art club's arch-rival the science club. As the club's duke it out in the halls, Peppi and Jamie duke it out on the emotional level, both learning to come out of their shells and save their beloved clubs from cancellation.
What else can I say? The art is beautiful. The characters are beautiful. The situation is beautiful. The humor is beautiful. Why are you still reading this when you could read the book?
It did not disappoint - this is a beautifully drawn and told story of growing as a person, making friends and learning from ones' mistakes as seen through the eyes of Peppi, a middle school girl, finding her place in a new environment. From awkward situations at school, to hidden problems at home and learning to say "I am sorry", it is really easy to relate to the characters and situations both for kids and adults.
Loved it - a great book that is a perfect read /gift for any kid going to school (and any adult who remembers what it was like).
