Shug by Jenny Han
Reviewed by Michelle
In the book Shug there are some ups and some downs. The author paints a realistic picture of a girl who's dealing with a lot of issues, including her parents' divorce and being one of the tallest in her class. The characters seem real to me and the setting also contributes. It seems like a real neighborhood.
This book is, in my opinion, for teens and preteens. The book would also be better for girls than for boys, since most boys don't like reading about drama. In this book you will never get bored at all. There are different topics all at once, including that of Shug trying to find where she fits in. You will want to not put the book down ever, you would want 2 be a part of it!
The best thing of the book is probably how the author puts everything together, how she describes the life, how she makes it true, and the thrills of course. Why you should read Shug is because it gives you tips on why you can do things and on being an individual. It sure helped me. Why some people should not read the book is because some people may not like drama or things like life stories. But I recommended you read it and give it a try. I hope the Jenny Han will come up with a Shug 2, I would totally read it.
