    One thought on “Stuck in the Middle (of Middle School): A Novel in Doodles”

    1. I can appreciate that this graphic novel told a deeper story than many I've read so far, working to share Doodlebug's worries about a poor grade, a first dance, and difficulties between her parents. However, at times the sheer number of doodles on the page was distracting and interrupted the flow of the story.

    2. I really wanted to like this one. Notebook Novel, biracial main character, fun story. However, this was torpedoed by horrible formatting. It shouldn't surprise anyone that fans of the Wimpy Kid books and this style in general are not the strongest readers. They often have vision or processing issues that make text difficult for them, which is why they like the pictures and the larger size font that these books generally have. When I introduce new notebook novels to these readers, they are not so [...]

    3. I was really excited that I won this book in the giveaways! It was my first one! I really enjoyed the fact that this book is a modern day story for children to read. Middle school-aged children will really be able to connect to the characters and situations discussed throughout the book. The characters are diverse, there are "modern families", the main character faces her first boy/girl school dance, and she discusses her struggle with one of her teachers (based on that teenage feeling that peop [...]

    4. This sequel to Doodlebug will likely appeal to elementary school girls who also enjoy the Dork Diary series. Done in the style of a graphic journal, characters are occasionally difficult to distinguish and the storyline occasionally suffers from the same ADD problems as the main character. However, the plot and problems contained in the story are totally appropriate for upper elementary and middle school audiences. Unfortunately, I can think of very few middle school students who would actually [...]

    5. These books are exhausting to read (so much little printn'tedadingassesah!), but once you get into a rhythm it flows more quickly. The story and characters are relatable (though not at all reflective of my middle school experience. Shop and Home Arts and Music and Art and a Language? Magical school with so much money!) And as much as it may have given me eye-strain, I'm glad I have something (along with The Popularity Papers to give my kids so they can learn to read cursive.

    6. I gave this book a 5 star because it was amazing I would recommend it to anyone because there's a girl moving going to a new middle school has problems and that happened to me which I can relate to her also people who loves novel's it is just amazing there is these surprising and exciting events that just happen when she enters her new school no friends meeting new teacher etc so I really do recommend it.

    7. I picked this up thinking it was going to be another Diary of a Wimpy Kid knockoff or Popularity papers/Dear Dumb Diary type of book but this was fantastic! The storyline goes much deeper- the kids in the story deal with real-life problems. Plus, the characters are very diverse in regard to their ethnicity, social class, and talents/interests. Lots of kids will be able to relate to this one. It's a good book for the smart, creative kid who may get into trouble sometimes at school.

    8. This book is very funny,.I loved seeing all the doodles,and I liked seeing Dodo's feelings,and what she went through.The doodles are very creative,and tell the story well. Karen Young has written a wonderful graphic novel.Dodo has moved to a school in Sf,where a dance is coming up,and she probably won't get to go.On the other hand,there's family drama happening at home!

    9. Interesting characters. Though, you will need patience to read through the book. There are so much text and doodling, it's hard to follow where. Take your time reading through this and be one of the middle schoolers.

    10. For grades 3-8. I thought this styles was really annoying when I first picked up this book to read. It is appropriate for the story, even enhances it, and I think kids will love it. Can be used with moving, popularity, ADHD, and family situations.

    11. The book was a little unclear. The writing was all over the place so I could not understand it much. Otherwise, this was a pretty good book.

    12. This is not a graphic novel.It is a handwritten book - and frankly the handwriting makes it really hard to read.
