Strangely, I felt like I could relate both to the awkward middle school protagonist AND her mother (I guess I’ve reached a certain age?) This was touching, moving, and completely realistic (as it should be given that it’s a memoir.) That delicate border of 12 going into 13 was heartbreakingly relatable
