Anatomy of a Misfit

Cover: 'Anatomy of a Misfit'

Staff Review: "Anatomy of a Misfit" by Andrea Portes


This book tells us the story of Anika, a tenth grader who is experiencing high school at it's greatest. She is trying to remain in the popular hierarchy, live with a unique family situation, and is torn between two boys who are vastly different. Anika has to decide to follow the crowd or to stay true to herself as she tries to fit in. The author did an excellent job of portraying real teenagers today and the struggles that they face. Anika's language is a refection of her peers but her struggles are timeless. A novel that is timeless and teaches us all lessons on how to be who we are in our heart is definitely worth reading!
