Review: Plain Old Kirby Carson
From Goodreads: Kirby Carson was not the most popular kid at school nor was he a standout in any way. In fact, very few people even noticed plain old Kirby Carson at all.
Everything was about to change when Sue Andrews, Monika Randolph, and the class bully all came looking for Kirby in the same day. He knew that his old tattered jean jacket would not be enough to keep him hidden any longer.
Plain Old Kirby Carson is the classic coming of ages story that has been modernized and updated to appeal to the average young adult. This humorous tale of told from the point of view of two seventh grade students who are partnered to complete a class project. Together they help one another to navigate through the perilous and confusing waters of loneliness, peer pressure, and romance.
I absolutely L-O-V-E-D this book! It is about a non-popular boy named Kirby Carson who always wears his jean jacket that his dad gave him. When he gets assigned to work with Sue Andrews, her best friend Monika thinks that she is Kirby's girlfriend and bad things happen. Kirby has to deal with bullies (which I don't like very much), being lied to, and lots more!
I really liked Kirby a lot. I think if he went to my school, he and I would be good friends. My favorite part is when Kirby makes pizzas with Sue and her dad. I would recommend this book to all my friends, and I think people who enjoyed Diary of a Wimpy Kid would really like it. I give this book:
