This ‘verse’ novel is an absolute heartbreaker. Clark gets right inside the head of Dawn. Dawn is in grade 6 and her best and longest friend has joined the style queens (read bitches), her mum and dad are fighting, and school and home are no longer the havens they once were. Dawn’s journey broke my heart, because it was my journey through grade 6 – where friendships change, families can be in upheaval, and the year seems like it’s never going to end.
Sixth Grade Style Queen (Not!)
