Here's the Penguin summary:
A very unscientific poll recently revealed that 99.9% of all people who attended middle school hated it. Fortunately, some of those people have grown up to be clever and talented comic artists, with an important message to share: Everyone can survive middle school!
Edited by underground comics icon Ariel Schrag, this anthology of illustrated tales about the agonies and triumphs of seventh and eight grade features some of America?s leading graphic novelists, including Daniel Clowes, Joe Matt, Lauren Weinstein, and Ariel herself. With a sense of humor as refreshing as it is bitingly honest, seventeen artists share their stories of first love, bullying, zits, and all the things that make middle school the worst years of our lives.
Ariel Bordeaux, Joe Matt, Daniel Clowes, Nicholas Eliopulos, Cole Johnson, Dash Shaw, Eric Enright, Vanessa Davis, Gabrielle Bell, Aaron Renier, Tania Schrag, Jace Smith, Lauren Weinstein, Jim Hoover, and Robyn Chapman.
Sorry for the late and short post. I have the stomach flu and it is taking every ounce of energy I have not to barf all over the laptop right now.
Siobhan said she wants to read it because quote, "It looks so awesome!" Fair enough reason to me!
In other news at least being sick has allowed me more time to read Eclipse. If only there was another way for a break around here! I just wanted to share one more Twilight related bit of awesome and then I promise I will not mention it again (ba ha ha, like I can honestly keep that promise).
Doesn't it make you laugh! It pretty much makes me pee my pants and if I weren't trying so hard not to *gurgle* throw up I would enjoy it even more.
Back to bed for me now. Hopefully tomorrow will be better because being sick on your day off sucks even more than taking a sick day.
While writing this post Korianne was listening to no music and was trying to keep it as quiet as possible, unfortunately Kendall and Mom are working on Kendall's schedule for next year a room away and that entailed some yelling. Korianne must run upstairs now and shut her door to prevent the headache and overall sickness from getting worse.
Korianne Fun Fact: Until high school she only missed school once in 4th grade when she got the flu on the same day as her field trip. High School pretty much blew that record, but that's a story for a later date.
