Imagine starting a new
middle school. Already a nightmare, right? Add a totally weird mother and the
need for acceptance in and you have met Marigold.
She is an average
13-year-old girl, except for one little thing: Her mom is a totally crazy
artist and dog-walker! (Think: Lady Gaga as a mother). Totally exciting and
cool sometimes, she’s also super embarrassing. Marigold’s mom is always
performing—even at Marigold’s new school!
And then there is Marigold’s
super relatable little sister, Kennedy. Kennedy loves to read and is ALWAYS
asking Marigold questions! Sound familiar?
Besides the mom thing,
Marigold is dealing with saying good-bye to her best friend, Emma, all while
trying to fit in amongst the cliques of her new school.
Add all of this together and
you just bought yourself a totally funny, refreshingly realistic look on a
crazy middle school life. Trauma Queen by Barbara Dee is an easy read, filled with humor and relatable scenarios. Be sure to
pick up a copy to discover how Marigold’s crazy story unfolds.
