Book Spotlight- Hundred Percent by Karen Romano Young

Welcome to Middle Grade Monday! Today I am spotlighting a new release from Chronicle Books, Hundred Percent, by Karen Romano Young.

The last year of elementary school is big for every kid. Christine Gouda faces change at every turn, starting with her own nickname—Tink—which just doesn't fit anymore. Christine navigates a year's cringingly painful trials in normalcy—uncomfortable Halloween costumes, premature sleepover parties, crushed crushes, and changing friendships. Throughout all this, Tink learns, what you call yourself, and how you do it, has a lot to do with who you are.


"A lovely, lovely tale full of warmth, humor, and intelligence."-Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Perfectly captures the emotions of middle schoolers and their evolving friendships and familial relationships."-School Library Journal, starred review
