An Un-Calibrated Centrifuge

My dad once said to me, "You give a lot of books three stars." I do.

Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass

Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass - Meg Medina

This book definitely deserves all the praise it's gotten. It's one of the real-est YA novels I think I've ever read. It's a great depiction of bullying, and I love the concentration on female relationships (loving and antagonistic).

 

I also love the fact that the book says "let's make it better" (vs "it gets better). I read it so quickly, I think I'll definitely need to reread to get all my thoughts together. But the only thing I didn't like on this reading was a bit of bad basketball writing (how can you tell what position someone's playing on offense when they're on defense?).
