Encyclopedia2The Encyclopedia of Me
by Karen Rivers

The Encyclopedia of Me is unlike any encyclopedia you've ever read before! . . . that is, if you've ever tried to read one. This is an encyclopedia that never stops entertaining. 

The main character, Tink, is bit of an oddball, but she is totally relatable. Tink is not used to being in the spotlight. Actually, she tends to be on the fringe of all the action (unless it’s the receiving end of a bullying encounter). Her best friend, Freddie Blue, is tall, blonde, funny, and amazing in every way. Tink is short, biracial, and has freckles. She also has twin older brothers, Lex and Seb. Seb is autistic, which she doesn’t want to talk about. But sometimes his disorder prevents Tink's voice from being heard.

Then "Blue-Haired Boy Who Just Moved in Next Door, The" (a.k.a. Kai) skates into her life. That was the day everything changed. Suddenly, Tink and Freddie Blue start drifting apart. Seb's autism starts to have more of an impact on her everyday life, in both positive and negative ways. And why has she become obsessed with boarding all of a sudden?

If you have ever found yourself in a similar situation to Tink's summer saga, tell us about it in the Comments!
Or, write us an encyclopedia entry! ;-)

  1. I'm a happy-happy horse

    I read the first four chapters of the book and this is what I think about it;
    1st- Eventhough the character has a good voice of talking to the character, she really doesn’t seem to give any details of the situation.
    2nd of all , oh what am I kidding I just got bored of reading the book, but that doesn’t mean its a terrible book…
    In fact the book was realllllllly awesomely good from what I read. The author deserves a huge round of applause and I need to just shut it.
    What’s the harm in expressing what you think is wrong?
    No sarchastic tone applied to the response. :P :) ;)

  2. somebody that you used to know

    she’s wearing skinny jeans. i just saw that. i hate skinny jeans just saying…

  3. not who you may think...or is it?

    I think I’ve been in a situation quite like that, actually. It sounds like a good read. I’m going to have to go check it out! :-)
