Diary of a Misfit
Diary of a Misfit shares the daily battles of an eighth-grader as she endures trials and tribulations of surviving peer pressure, dealing with physical changes and balancing academics. It takes readers to the realities of a school girl’s life, one who is christened as a social misfit by her peers. From dealing with school bullies, making one’s life miserable, to the whirlwind puppy love encounters with the opposite sex, and all the way into finding the right people who share the same interests and hobbies, life as a teen or preteen is not at all a walk in the park.
