Shug

It's National Library Week!

The transition between grade school and junior high seems to be dramatic and tough. Mostly everyone wants to be grown up and mature and cool. Shug just wants to be young and keep things they way they have always been. She doesn't understand why everyone needs to be boyfriend/girlfriend all of a sudden and she really doesn't get why Mark won't hang out with her anymore.

As everyone seems to be growing up without her, Shug finds friendship in the one person she thought she hated. Sometimes you have more things in common than you think. And sometimes the friends you thought would be there forever slowly fade away.

Read Jenny Han's Shug.
