Graphic Novel Review: Crunch

* Book 5 in the Click series *
Olive has too many things going on her life - she's trying to be a good friend to everyone. She's taking guitar lessons - and she's supposed to be practicing 3 hours a week. She ends up taking scout lessons after a failed intervention with a friend's parents. She's involved in student council - and taking on the school's unfair dress code. And she just saw an advertisement for a local film festival. With school and family life - could it all be too much?
My Thoughts: I love this graphic novel series - there's so much about friendship and school and family. This addition is great - talking about spreading yourself too thin, picking which activity is right for you, and giving yourself a break. I love how Olive tries many different activities. Middle schoolers are already trying to figure out who they are, it's great that they have the abilities to figure about their favorite activities. Of course, I loved the talk about mental health. It's so important to be happy in your own skin. Another great chapter in this series. 

Cover Thoughts: Cute

Library Recommendation: If this series isn't an auto-buy for your library, it should be.
