Fans of, and newcomers to, the world of Abbie Wu will be delighted with the funny, lively graphic novel that continues Abbie's journey through sixth grade. Author and illustrator Booki Vivat's Ordinary Mishaps and Inevitable Catastrophes finds the slightly neurotic but oh-so-relatable Abbie learning how to cope when things go wrong. The anime-influenced illustrations are lively and charming. Readers who are anxious about middle school will laugh along as they learn that even when things go wrong, it's not the end of the world.

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.
