The Encyclopedia of Me
Author: Karen Rivers
Release date: September 1, 2012
Published by: Arthur A. Levine Books
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was a sweet YA read. It felt more like a middle grade story, which is perfect because it is about a girl's, Tink's, first love and how friendships can change as people grow and become different people. She also shares information about how living with a brother with autism can be interesting and difficult at the same time.
For me it was really all about the format: Tink is a writer and she's writing an encyclopedia entry for each element/person/item that is important in her life. It was also a quick afternoon read because the format made for fast reading, while also sharing the narrative of Tink's summer between middle school and high school.
