While this book explores the "Sour Side" of friendship, Tom Angleberger writes with deft understanding of middle school worries and priorities and spot-on humor. Tweens will happily hitch a ride on this bus trip of doom. Romantic aspirations complicate friendships and drive kids apart, but readers will notice that beneath it all the kids are more alike than different. The creative presentation of this series, with fully illustrated pages representing a real collaborative project, is sure to inspire similar group efforts -- and plenty of paper-folding.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
