Crush (Berrybrook Middle School)

Crush (Berrybrook Middle School)

"Let me start by saying that if I could, I would write a recommendation for every book in this series. They're fantastic and every kid needs to read them, and they don't need to be read in any particular order. But, if forced, I would have to pick Crush as my favorite. This is not your typical "first middle school crush" sort of narrative. Problematic aspects of many kids books are left at the door (AKA no mean cheerleaders or exclusive cliques). Our protagonist is a jock who stops bullying whenever he sees it and respects the boundaries of the girl he has a crush on. This book takes a subtle but effective stab at problems of masculinity, sexism, bullying, active listening, and friendship. With a diverse cast and a non-preachy writing style, Crush is at its core simply a good story, as every book should be."

Following the overwhelming success of AWKWARD and BRAVE, Svetlana Chmakova's award winning Berrybrook Middle School series continues with its next installment - CRUSH! Jorge seems to have it all together. He's big enough that nobody really messes with him, but he's also a genuinely sweet guy with a solid, reliable group of friends. The only time he ever really feels off his game is when he crosses paths with a certain girl... But when the group dynamic among the boys starts to shift, will Jorge be able to balance what his friends expect of him versus what he actually wants?
