Oh boy. I'm not quite sure what to think. On one hand, the humor was great but there was more than one downside.
I almost DNF'ed at chapter two. This is so awkward to even type but by the end of the second chapter, the (male) author had already spent six pages on periods. It was way too much. I kinda feel bad for whatever female he questioned to be able to write it.
Secondly, this is a middle-grade book and it was trash-talking people with different political opinions than the main character's family. This isn't about me taking one side or the other but rather, the fact that it got into politics from such a biased standpoint. Quote the book, "The political talk was the worst, because normally my father would have been the firry liberal in the mix, but this year, my most right-wing uncle was all, 'More guns! Less government! Yay, white people." Yeah. In a middle-grade book.
Third was the language used. This had stronger language than any other middle-grade that I've seen and many times even referenced stronger language.

I'm not getting along with this author. At all. Very 'meh'. Peter reads like a 12yo.

DNF

You know what? I refuse to torture myself further.
And if you want to so much as meep at me to give it another chance - don't bother.

I've read a YA book with injury irrevocably affecting the protagonist's life a while back and it was 100 times better. The book was [b:The Beginning of Everything|13522285|The Beginning of Everything|Robyn Schneider|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1366395005s/13522285.jpg|19082966] (or in some other cases - [b:Severed Heads, Broken Hearts|16097364|Severed Heads, Broken Hearts|Robyn Schneider|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1374501795s/16097364.jpg|19082966]).

So here is me telling you : SKIP THIS
This ... IT ruined my whole day. I felt so cheated. It still makes me furious.

FINAL VERDICT : BURN IT

Solid book with big heart -- Maverick's desire to be the hero he imagines has hilarious (and painful) consequences. Love the terrifying school staff (The Bee and The Bird). Love that Maverick's difficult home life improves. Short, fast-paced, great.
