Summary

Before you write me off as a delusional psycho, think about what it's like to be thrown into a situation where everyone knows everyone... and no one knows you. Sadie has the perfect plan to snag some friends when she transfers to Plainfield High--pretend to have a peanut allergy. But what happens when you have to hand in that student health form your unsuspecting mom was supposed to fill out? And what if your new friends want to come over and your mom serves them snacks? (Peanut butter sandwich, anyone?) And then there's the bake sale, when your teacher thinks you ate a brownie with peanuts. Graphic coming-of-age novels have huge cross-over potential, and Peanut is sure to appeal to adults and teens alike.


"A smart, affecting graphic young adult novel." -- The New York Times

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Almost everyone has dreamed of starting fresh at a new school: meeting the right people, standing out, becoming popular. Sadie, however, has moved eight times since she was born and is tired of being the new kid. In an effort to shortcut the distance between being new and being noticed, she lies about having a severe peanut allergy, figuring the invisibility of the problem combined with the snazzy medical alert bracelet will be her ticket to being special. But as her classmates, teachers, and the school nurse get involved in monitoring her allergy, it becomes increasingly difficult for Sadie to keep her lie from exploding and leaving her new social life in ruins. Although the plot is standard, the information on this type of allergy adds to the interest and helps advance the story. Hoppe's blue-and-white artwork is simple yet expressive, and the addition of the color pink helps keep Sadie as the focal point of the story. Although the story is set in high school, younger teens will find a lot to like in this slice-of-life story.--Volin, Eva Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Inventing a deadly peanut allergy isn't the first thing the average teenager would think of to make herself more interesting, but Halliday (Always Lots of Heinies at the Zoo) takes the idea and runs with it. The moment that sophomore Sadie Wildhack puts her scheme into action, tension starts to build. Chatter from new classmates ("I'm like 'Oh my God, stop acting like you've got cancer!' ") makes it clear Sadie will find little sympathy. Commentary from homeroom teacher Mr. Larch provides just the right ironic counterpoint: "Ladies, please! This is algebra, not some tatty Guy de Maupassant story." The story's arc is a long, slow fall into public embarrassment; only the attention of Chris "Zoo" Suzuki, a Luddite who hand-delivers his love notes because he doesn't have a cellphone, saves Sadie from complete social failure. In loose gray cartoons accented with coral, Hoppe (Hat) provides maximum visual information without drawing attention to himself, nailing sequences like one in which Sadie imagines confessing, but struggles to find the words. It's not easy being both hip and life- affirming, but this team has the secret formula. Ages 11-14. Agent: Rebecca Sherman, Writers House. (Jan.)? (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
