Book Review: The Story of Awkward by R.K. Ryals 6/5 stars!

Overview: Perri is a regular girl heading off to her first year of college with her best friend and her friend’s brother. The weather is horrible and Perri starts seeing things that couldn’t possibly be there. After their blazer crashes into a flooded river, she and her friend’s brother are thrust into  a land of imagination come to life by sheer will. The two go on a pilgrimage to find the land’s prince and discover what being awkward is truly about and why it is much better to be awkward than perfect.

Opinion: Have you ever been bullied because you were different? Ever wished that you were perfect? People can be cruel and pick on those that are different, making others feel awkward about themselves when they shouldn’t. I feel that this book is so perfect for the world that it should be everywhere. The message is that it IS OK to be yourself. It IS OK to have glasses, be short, big, tall, thin; just be who YOU are and the right people will accept you.

With all if the bullying in school and tragic suicides as a result of bullying, I believe this book could do wonders to help put an end to it.

Recommend: Yes!
