Meet Abbie Wu. Abbie is in crisis – and not just because she’s starting middle school or because she’s stuck in a family that doesn’t quite get her or because everyone seems to have a Thing except her. Abbie Wu is always in crisis. The story dives right into the mind of this hilariously neurotic middle school girl as she tries to figure out who she is and where she belongs. The story is heavily illustrated, embarrassingly honest, and sure to appeal to anyone in the middle of figuring out how to survive the everyday disasters of growing up.
