We all have our insecurities. We all have our awkward. Hopefully, we all have the moments where we realize that our own awkward is beautiful because it's ours. R.K. Ryals has encapsulated every feeling I had growing up, in The Story of Awkward. I found myself laughing and crying along with Perri. The premise is so perfect. As you are in this child's world, you overcome obstacle after adult obstacle. It is both light hearted, and deep and dark. Because, isn't that real life? This has been one of the most touching and emotional books I have ever read. Do yourself a favor, read this book. Your heart will thank you.

This book is truly amazing in every way! I normally stay away from "fairy tail" books, but this fairy tail was very inspiring and it really makes you believe in yourself. Not only does it teach you to love yourself, and be confident, but it also helps you to realize that standing up for what you believe in is always important, even if you're standing alone <3

I don't typically write reviews but this was amazing. It captured the imagination, youthfulness, and adventure of a fairytale while having adult dilemmas that kept it from being too childish. Well written with an admirable and unique heroine. This story is great for reminding you that it's alright to be different and that we all have struggles. I would highly reccommend this book.

It was a pretty good book. I liked the message that it put across. For thoed who struggle everyday and think they need to be perfect for someone to love them when they really just need to learn to love themselves first. I felt like it was a bit draged out though. But thats just my own personal opinion. I'd still recomend it.

Free books can surprise you! I am an on again, off again reader. So when I started this book I had not read a book in months. I was captured immediately. The fantasy side threw me for a loop but once in I could understand and imagine it all. We precieve perfection in our social media enhanced world. Everyone looks terrific in their vacation selfies. Their yards are full of flowers...at least in the pictures they post. No ones life or looks are perfect and to work toward that leaves you missing out on the fun, quirky mess of life! Great read for older teens and young adults too but as a 50 year old it spoke to me too.

“If you are looking for a happy book about beautiful people, this is the wrong story…This story is ugly.” (Prologue) This story is about a girl named Peregrine, a shy, introverted girl with glasses and an imperfect life, a life mirrored in the World of Awkward—a fantasy world created by her, inspired by the people she knows. This was Perri’s “easy button” to life, this was a place where she was accepted AS IS. Known to doodle on everything, Perri departs for college. Then comes the moment where your fantasy world becomes real. So, like Dorothy and Alice, Perri inexplicably gets whisked away to the Land of Oz or Wonderland, where up was down and day was night. Strange. “This world is built on awkwardness, on the idea that there is someplace where it’s okay to be different. Where it’s okay not to be perfect…This world lives in more than one imagination. It was simply your hand that finally gave it a face.” (44) I wanna live in Awkward! But Awkward is in danger, being destroyed by an evil sorceress named Perfection. I love the irony! Who would want to be perfect? Who would want to be a stereotype? The mission: To save Awkward. At first, the idea of fairies, trolls and princesses sounds cheesy, but this story is far from it. It’s a delightfully wild and gallant adventure with heart. In the mist of peril, Perri confronts her darkest fears and buried memories filled with heartache. A very real and touching story! Story supports individuality, self-assurance, and, most of all, awkwardness. It’s a heaping pile of silliness, wit, and fun. It’s a bleak and blissful reminder that the child—joyous and fragile—inside never dies. This is an inspiration to “embrace your awkwardness.”

This is not the first book I have read by R.K. Ryals, but it is my favorite! She draws you in and shows you her visions, you feel the emotions and understand exactly where she is coming from.... You don't just read her books, you experience them!
