My daughter received this book to read and I loved the solid blue cover with a single raised peanut in the center so much I decided to read and review it myself. Being the mother of two daughters, fifteen and nine, I could absolutely relate to everything poor Sadie was going through. The teen years are some the hardest years of a girls life and all they want to do is fit in, be liked, and do well (for the most part) but it rarely goes this smoothly. Sadie is a high schooler who recently transfers in to a new school and wanting to fit in and give her peers something to remember her by, tells them she has a severe peanut allergy, hence the title and nickname peanut. The downfall is trying to live her lie when she doesn't actually have a peanut allergy, or any allergy for that fact. The author did a great job showing the reader just how difficult high school still is and all of the agonies and drama that go hand in hand. You couldn't pay me enough to relive my teenage years. Fantastic addition to my graphic novel collection!

This book has a very interesting plot that teenagers can relate to. I think it accurately portrays a real-life situation and how to deal with it. This book has exceptional illustrations and even without the illustrations, this book would still be good because the words are powerful and make you emotional. The characters are well structured and you get to know them well. In the end, Sadie and "Zoo" learn lessons and end up tying the loose ends. This story solves up just enough problems, but still leaves some things to be pondered about. This book is very good and it would be recommended to kids/teens from ages of about 10 and up :) .Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
