Whene crosses paths with a certain girl But when the group dynamic among the boys starts to shift will Jorge be able to balance what is friends expect of im versus what e actually wan.

My favorite in the series so far I eart Jorge I SO needed this as a palate cleanse after the last two Cooking Light Lazy Gourmet horrific 1 star graphic novels I just read This book is cute and sweet and everything I needed right now I read the teaseranded out at ALA Annual 2018 and knew that I Arise had to get myands on the entire thing I was right it was so awesome I didn t realize this was the th This is third in a series that is only very lightly related None of them rely on any of the others so they can easily be read in any order I do Archies Americana, Vol. 1 highly recommend reading them all in whatever order you chooseChmakova knocked this one out of the park too Which is no surprise Again the characters fairly leap off the page and the story is so well told that it takes you back to those middle school years and the rapid fire changes and drama and pain and joy inherent in them As with any great storyteller she does so in a way that evokes that age with sympathy andonesty I really enjoyed the layers to this story and seeing Jorge struggle with being a good person even in the face of bad events I liked The Book Thief his uiet calm that maskedis occasional panic and I liked Talk to Me his willingness to find the best in others whene couldAnd I think I ll leave it with that As the title implies the story is largely about Jorge s crush on a girl And Chmakova does such a fine job with that as the lead while exploring other aspects of friendship as well And again Silver Mortal (The Gracen Chronicles, her art just blows me away with its evocative fine detail adding that extra meaning to a story already well told I absolutely can t look at my previous review without cringing HARD so I deleted it But this was so SO cute Imma need to reread this normally but Svetlana Chmakova yet again does not disappoint Whenever I go to some store where there s books mostly Target I pick this up I m currently at page 186 and it s SO CUTE GUYS I WISHED IN Brave TO SEE JORGE MORENOW LOOK AT THIS ART I ordered this months ago and then forgot about it until I got the notice that itad shipped Though I love all of Svetlana Chmakova s work my interest pales beside that of my daughter whose mild reading disability translates to Educating for the New World Order her being comfortable with audiobooks and graphic novels So I left it oner computer and texted Living in Little Rock with Miss Little Rock her at work to say shead a surpriseand The Character Of An Upright Man her reaction was gratifyingThis series is brilliant inow it captures the middle school experience When I read Awkward I initially thought the attitudes and relationships were too mature for middle schoolers And then I started remembering my own middle school experience I d blocked it out for being a traumatic period of confusion growing awareness of boys being bullied and basically not knowing who I was or what I wanted to be And Chmakova gets thatIn. Following the overwhelming success of AWKWARD and BRAVE Svetlana Chmakova's award winning Berrybrook Middle School series continues with its next installment CRUSHJorge seems to ave it al.

Crush the story is about Jorge s crush on Jazmine but it goes so much further than that into issues of body autonomy and going along with the crowd and the orrors of gossip And all of it is done in a way that avoids being a lecture which would kill the story dead It s also a story about friendship and forgiveness Jorge is eminently lovable not just for being big and conscious of using GURPS Conspiracy X his size to protect others but becausee Just One Golden Kiss has a clear grasp of right and wrong and never fails to act accordingly If this was a didactic story I d saye s the perfect role model but it s not and Jorge is simply the person The Tyranny of Guilt he iswhoappens to be someone any kid struggling to find Phantom Encounters his place in the world might look up toI continue to look forward to volumes in this delightful series Having a crush is soard and is is doubly Eat Your Way Through the USA hard for Jorge especially since the girle My Dirty Janitor Book 4 has the crush onas a boyfriendWe met Jorge in earlier books in this series but it is not necessary to read the other books as each of them are self contained Awkward and Brave build on each other but you can pick any of the three books up and Stories from Spain / Historias de España have a wonderful time seeing the drama that is middle schoolThere are the mean boys rather than mean girls in this story which is a refreshing change But the mean boys really are just as bad as any mean girls and the things they do to Jorge as a revenge are very mean spiritedThe dialogue is fun The feelings are very raw and real and the characters are typical middle grade kids who like to play video games instead of studying and who forget theiromework and other charms of going to schoolBelow are some sample panels of Jorge not knowing what to do or say when Spanish-American Short Stories / Cuentos hispanoamericanos he is byis crushLove this series and can Broken Bear hardly wait for me to get a physical copy of this book and thenopefully await the next book in the seriesThanks to Netgalley for making this book available for an Enna Burning honest reveiw 35 If you can t use your sports skills to win andave to resort to verbal abuse and insults on my field GET OFF MY FIELD Middle school is Hatter hard Being a new teenager isard But this is easy An easy to read easy to understand graphic novel that covers a lot of issues Boys girls non binary one mention extroverts and shy kids sports jocks and bookish nerds big guys and little kids popular kids and loners pale medium dark kids blondes brunettes redheads Paint the Wind headscarf And names from around the globe Jorge Ruiz ourero Olivia Liv Jorge s best friend Jazmine Duong shy uiet and Jorge s first crush Zeke Garrett James and a Wayne host of others including Mrs R I love this series and want to gift it to every kid I know startingin middle school end reviewNo but seriously I love the story lines the artwork is SUPERB I just really love Chmakova s il.
