The Story of Awkward is a not so beautiful tale of a fantasy come to life and all of the realizations that come with growing up. We meet Peregrine Storke, an 19 year old artist headed to New York with her best friend. Enter Foster, said best friend's older brother and unfortunately for Perri, the one person she blames for the torture she endured through school. Cramming into an SUV for the long drive from Louisiana to New York they encounter a storm, a flash flood and the horrific scene of Perri being trapped as the dark waters swirl and rise.
A bit of watermelon flavored fairy dust later and Perri is thrust into the pages of her sketchbook where she took refuge for years, with Foster along for the ride. The story is a whimsical tale of the fight against Perfection and Stereotype and the realization that maybe, just maybe, life isn't as simple or straightforward as it may seem.
I realize that this book is classified as New Adult but in my opinion it could even be read as a young adult novel. There is just enough fantasy and not enough adult situations that I would deter me from recommending the book to anyone that I know. I really enjoyed the story and can't wait to read more in this series.
And just because I went a little highlighter crazy I'll leave you with a quote from the book that describes it perfectly. "That awkward moment when you realize fairytales are much more than simple stories.”
This is not a perfect book. The younger kids, who would most benefit from a book like this, may not be ready for some of the topics (eating disorders, alcoholism, war, discussions about sex... Etc). Older kids might find the story a bit cheesy and not go for the fairytale theme. Still, for the right audience this is a cute fast read with a message or two.
