Definitely Daphne by Tami Charles
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
@capstonePub #partner - I received a copy of this book through Netgalley in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
Annabelle Louis and her military family just moved again which is nothing new. But now Annabelle has to go to a real middle school versus being home-schooled. She doesn't take it well. In order to help her adjust to the change, her parents sets her up with a therapist which in turn prompts the start of a social experiment that will soon get out of control.
Annabelle’s journey of self acceptance and awareness is a beautiful and emotional one. Making friends is one of the hardest thing to do when you're shy or a social introvert. And we all want to fit in, find people we connect with, so I feel like this was written for tween me.
I love the complex and complicated relationships, the awkward and funny moments, and the embarrassing ones too.
The writing style is a combination of prose and screenplay and it adds so much to Annabelle's voice while enhancing the drama in the book to a cinematic level.
I fell in love with Tami Charles as an author when I read Like Vanessa and I'm so glad she wrote another book that reached inside my soul and hugged my younger self tight once again.
