The Queen of Cool by Cecil Castellucci
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I have read and loved all of Cecil Castellucci's books and graphic novels and this book is no exception. Castellucci's Libby Brin is the coolest, cutest girl in her school but she keeps feeling like she is bored, restless, and I thought, at times, depressed. She has potential, could get good grades but instead she decides to take an internship at a zoo and is partnered with a fellow classmate that she makes fun of with her friends in school. As she takes notes with Tina/Tiny and low talker, Sheldon, and makes mistake after mistake at the zoo, Libby starts to truly speak her mind, admit to her superficiality, and begin to be the queen of "uncool" and she realizes she likes her new friends and herself. A great YA book!!!
