In the tradition of a diary of a wimpy kid this book chronicles the adventures of a 14 year old boy and that age groups humor. That humor is demonstrated in the title. BTW it is nice to read something like this after the last review which was a bit intense.Larkin Pace is a vertically challenged 14 year old teenager. His goals and aspirations are subject to the people and kids around him. His control over his life is minimal. He spends a lot of time frustrated. This is going to resonate well with young teens who share the same feelings. “Just because I am a kid doesn’t mean I am stupid”, has been said my own grandson. Kids often feel powerless. This book may help them to deal with that frustration.
The book has loads of graphics but I wouldn’t consider it a graphic novel.
This format has been a best seller with the Diary of the Wimpy Kid. I think both the format and story will be appealing to the young teenager.
It is humorous and entertaining I recommend it.
