a story told through stuff

I just read Eighth Grade Is Making Me Sick: 
Ginny Davis's Year in Stuff 
by Jennifer L. Holm

What a fun breath of fresh air! The story of eight grader Ginny Davis is told through photographs, post-it notes, grocery lists, homework assignments, IMs, and report cards. It feels like snooping through Ginny's personal effects. I loved the photo-collages that make up the life of a middle schooler.

Part scrapbook, part comic, part diary... entirely relatable.
