This non-fiction book combines humorous moments and facts to make the bare bones come to life about embarrassment. The graphics and more freely placed text format make it less daunting than a textbook. Learn how to deal with almost any kind of embarrassment from the spilled drink on the pants, to the “thing” in the teeth to PIPs: Parents in Public. And there are facts that are both useful (the why of a red face when embarrassed) to things like how many times a day we um… toot (I promise, it deals with embarrassment and not there just for gross factor). ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Tara Smith has lived her whole life not fitting in with her classmates, books are her friends, she has a strict schedule she sticks to and knows she is bound for bigger things. During a fluke accident the bracelet that she wears is damaged and that’s when things start to get exciting. After all, not every day you see a classmate spontaneously combust. Waking up in an underground school for aliens (which she learns, she is one) Tara finally thinks school will be easy. After all she will finally fit in. Right? Not so much. The hilarity ensues with best friend and roommate misunderstandings, a Russian-sounding-cat who loves teen dramas and teachers that still assign tons of homework. You will find humor, adventure, mystery, relatable characters and themes of coming-of-age while learning to accept who you are. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
