Brave by Svetlana Chmakova

Amazon.com: Brave (Berrybrook Middle School) (9780316363181): Chmakova,  Svetlana, Chmakova, Svetlana: Books

One boy faces bullies, middle school, and all around confusion, and realizes what it means to be brave. Brave is a story about a kid named Jensen who gets bullied because of his weight. The bullies, Foster and Yanic, are straight-up jerks and call him names like "Fatso." He gets help from friends at the newspaper crew about what to do about these bullies.

I absolutely LOVED this book! The art style is wonderful (it's a graphic novel) and it's so well written and upbeat. Jensen, being the narrator, has such a great mood and he daydreams a lot.

If you like really humorous, sometimes sad or angering books, then make sure to check out Brave. I think the age demographic would probably be ages 10 and up, since this book has some slight bad words. 

Ofel, 11
