The Story of Awkward

If you are looking for a happy book about beautiful people, this is the wrong story. If you are looking for a narrative without emotion, without regrets, and without mistakes, this is definitely the wrong story. This is by no means an uncomplicated tale about uncomplicated people. It is by no means sweet or light. This story is ugly. This story is complicated. This story is emotional. This story is tragic. In short, this story is about being awkward. Peregrine Storke is an artist with an odd sketchbook full of pictures she’s drawn since she was a child. It is a book full of strange sketches and awkward characters, for there is no better way to hide from bullying and life than to create a world of your own. With a stroke of her pencil, she has given life to a spectacled princess, a freckle-nosed king, a candy loving troll, a two-horned unicorn, and a graceless fairy. At nineteen, Peregrine leaves her home, her sketchbook, and awkwardness behind. But what happens when something goes wrong in the world of Awkward? Trapped inside of her complex realm with the bully she thought to leave behind, Peregrine discovers there is nothing worse than falling for your own villain.

No, it tells you straight up that the story you’re about to read will be one that will pull at your heartstrings and punch you straight in the gut. And it delivers on that. I haven’t read anything like this before. It touched my heart in so many different ways. I felt like Perri was my kindred spirit. Who among us has never felt out of place…

  2. The Story of Awkward has touched my heart! It’s rare to find a book that can touch your heart and have such a strong impact on your emotions. The story of Awkward is that book for me. Not only is it unique and beautifully written, it has a deep message that I believe everyone could benefit from reading. I know growing up I was picked on for many things and even as an adult I have times when I don’t like the way I look or feel like I don’t fit in with others. Reading awkward helps puts these thoughts and feelings into perspective. I…
