" This just didn't do it for me. I didn't like the layout that the shy character was written in, and I didn't like the bossy character herself. I did like the alternating points of view, but overall just didn't really enjoy this one the way that I enjoy books in its same genre (Smile/Sisters, Popularity Papers, etc.) " said.

" My students will love this one, mainly because of the format. It would be a good mentor text writing example to show how format and voice can help a character come to life (at least for Emmie). It reminded me a bit of Sherman Alexie's Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, but for a younger audience. Katie's character felt forced, flat and in-your-face compared to Emmie's. The ending explains why, but I think it would be a stronger read without Katie. " said.

" Emmie is one of those kids who people just don't notice. She's not the underdog for being a nerd, or disabled (as she herself points out there any many books about such kids). She is just average and quiet and people don't pay attention to her. This is the story of her day of finally getting noticed, but it doesn't quite go as she'd hoped. Told in a graphic novel-esque style, this books is a great look at middle school, friendship, crushes, and anxiety. " said.

" In a surprising turn, I actually quite liked this one. It's not without its issues (the steal cut oats comment and the word "nuts" as it relates to mental stability being thrown around casually), but it ultimately worked really well in what it set out to do, I think. Probably a few upper elementary/middle school kids will find value in it, for sure.A not-as-good as Smile addition to the Smile read-alikes. " said.

"Super cute story about Emmie, a 7th grade student who is shy. Emmie tells her story about changing from Emmie to a puddle of slime and back to Emmie again. Emmie is a thirteen year old 7th grade student, who loves her older siblings, feels somewhat alone in the absence of her hard working parents, and adores her best friend, Brianna.

Written as a combination of graphic novel and text, and the images capture the thoughts and emotions of Emmie perfectly. This book is a quick read and fun.

"I didn't identify with this as much as I would have liked, but only because I am definitely not shy and quiet and our main character is very much an introvert. For those kids that DO see themselves in Emmie, I think they will rejoice to finally have a book that validates their daily lives. The hybrid-graphic-novel format gave the book a little extra quirk and the twist at the end was a much-needed surprise. This will be an easy recommendation for graphic novel fans and those kids that have a tough time making eye contact and approaching the desk to ask a question. " said.

" 4 stars. You don't think two girls--one shy and artistic, the other out-going and athletic--could have much in common? Well, maybe the boy they both have a crush on.Wrong! Through alternating illustrated text and comic-strip graphics, Libenson let's Emmie and Katie show us they have much more in common than you'd ever guess. Humorous, heart-felt, and downright eerie in its echoes of my own middle school years. Recommended for those who liked Roller Girl, Fuzzy, or any of the Diary series. " said.

"Seventh grader Emmie has one best friend, two older siblings off at college, two attentive parents, and extreme shyness in all other situations, so when her love poem to her crush goes public, she fears she will melt into a puddle of slime unlike her classmate Katie who seems to have it all. Inspired by the author's own middle school days, there is much to relate to in Emmie's quest to go unnoticed and to prefer drawing to speaking in class. The illustrations are detailed in unexpected ways and silly in this graphic novel told from two points of view that converge somewhat predictably in the end. ROLLER GIRL and SMILE fans will enjoy this one, too. " said.
