Cardinal rule #1 for surviving school: Don't get noticed by the mean kids.
Cardinal rule #2 for surviving school: Seek out groups with similar interests and join them.
On her first day at her new school, Penelope--Peppi--Torres reminds herself of these basics. But when she trips into a quiet boy in the hall, Jaime Thompson, she's already broken the first rule, and the mean kids start calling her the "nerder girlfriend." How does she handle this crisis? By shoving poor Jaime and running away!
Falling back on rule two and surrounding herself with new friends in the art club, Peppi still can't help feeling ashamed about the way she treated Jaime. Things are already awkward enough between the two, but to make matters worse, he's a member of her own club's archrivals--the science club! And when the two clubs go to war, Peppi realizes that sometimes you have to break the rules to survive middle school!

LOVE THIS BOOK!
This book is absolutely amazing and really captures the emotion that Peppi goes through during difficult times in middle school only through pictures. I would definitely recommend it to people who love graphic novels. It has so many surprises I could NOT stop reading it!
I love this book so much. It’s funny when I bring the book to school, soooo many people want to read it because of the story line. And it amazing on how it you can draw that sometimes it’s ok to mess up during your amazing life in middle school. 😂 I learned not to fall on my feet in front of a cute boy. I can’t wait till crush!!!!! Crush might be one of my new favorites.
