Peregrine Storke (Perri) has finally outgrown most of her childhood insecurities and embraced her unique sense of self. As she heads off to college, she packs away her journal filled with sketches of purple-winged fairies, princesses, and friendly trolls (her only family growing up) to start her life anew. Her best friend's older brother, Foster, the very one who'd created the rhymes the entire school had used to taunt her, returned from his years of military duty mature, handsome, and with quite a few changes of his own. But to Perri, he would always be the bully who picked on her in school.
Enter a strange storm, a car accident, and a little bit of magic. Suddenly, Perri and Foster are thrown into the world she'd created, watermelon fairy dust, two-headed unicorns, and all. Saving a kingdom and rescuing its prince with your hot ex-nemesis? Awkward. Watching him meet your vengeance-fueled, crayon-drawn version of his old self? Priceless.
I loved it. The premise is unbearably fun, the romance sweet, the story touching and heartfelt. Another five stars for author RK Ryals.
This book tackles that and then some. This is one that I would recommend to EVERYONE, no matter your age. If you're currently doubting yourself, or have spent your entire life doubting you were good enough, this book will get to you. You'll love it, I promise. And I absolutely ADORE the way the author handled everything! The world of Awkward was absolute perfection in my opinion! I'll be buying this one in print ASAP because reading it again and again is in my future. Move over Disney, there's a new fairytale queen in town and her name is R.K. Ryals!
This is a book many people will be able to relate to. Are you awkward? Do you sometimes have trouble embracing yourself? Is it hard to sometimes remember that you are perfect the way you are? Then you’ve come to the right place.
The Story of Awkward tells the story of a girl named Peregrine. She created the world of Awkward as a way to escape all the badness in her real life. From bullying to her emotionally abusive father to her in-different mother. The thing is, in spite of all these issues, the book doesn’t start off in a bad place. It starts off with Peregrine ready to go to college and excited for a fresh start.
But, a near death accident transports her, and her tormentor (who also happens to be her best friend’s brother) to the world she imagined as a kid. To Awkward. And Awkward is in trouble. It will be up to Peregrine and Foster (her tormentor) to save it.
Awkward was an awkward world. There will be some things about it that don’t make sense but I decided to go with the flow and ignore those tid bits because it is still a wonderfully imagined world and SO CREATIVE!
This book takes us on an adventure to save a prince who has been lured in by perfection but it also takes us on a journey of self-acceptance. The book also features a super cute romance between Foster and Peregrine.
I know what you might be thinking, “BUT HE TORMENTED HER”, and I felt that too but Ryals does such a fantastic job with the romance and makes the two SO EASY TO SHIP. Their romance is wonderfully developed and doesn’t turn into instalove when it easily could have. I loved watching them support one another and help each other feel accepted.
That said, my main issue with the book was that the MC had to lose weight to let go of her body image issues.
This is a fantastic book written in a unique voice and it so loveable. It features a strong yet awkward female lead, a cute romance, an interesting world and also a great message.
