I thoroughly enjoyed Tom Angleberger’s The Strange Case of Origami Yoda!
The book uses different perspectives and hilarious doodles to tell the story, and it is a quick enjoyable read for those actually in Gr. 6 or grown up geeks such as myself. It was laugh out loud funny, quirky and well presented with pages that appear crumbled like a kid’s notebook.
Peer pressure, first crushes and the general difficulty of fitting in for tweens is realistically dealt with. I would highly recommend this for kids who enjoyed Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
