Meet Abbie Wu. Abbie is in crisis—and not just because she’s starting middle school or because she’s stuck in a family that doesn’t quite get her or because everyone seems to have a Thing except her. Abbie Wu is always in crisis.
From debut author and professional doodler Booki Vivat, Frazzled dives right into the mind of this hilariously neurotic middle school girl as she tries to figure out who she is and where she belongs. Akin to Smile by Raina Telgemeier, Frazzled is heavily illustrated, embarrassingly honest, and sure to appeal to anyone in the middle of figuring out how to survive the everyday disasters of growing up.
"Honest, sweet, and laugh-out-loud funny," raves Brightly.com. "Fans of <em_font_element>Smile and <em_font_element>Diary of a Wimpy Kid will appreciate this debut."
Frazzled is about Abbie Wu, evil teachers, and middle school. When Abbie reaches middle school she is absolutely, guaranteed without a doubt 100% doomed (in her own words). The only thing she looks forward to is the so called “delicious lunch.” But on the first day of school she cant even look forward to that…oh and she seems to be the only without a “thing.”
With the help of her CRAZY aunt, her brother, and her friends will Abbie make it through middle school? Well let me tell you ……..just kidding you’ll have yo read it for yourself . I loved this book. I read it in one day. I LOVED the illustrations on this book.- E, age 10
