I thought Shug was a great book. It had a lot of romance and drama. It is about a tall, freckled twelve-year-old girl named Annemarie. She is trying to get a first kiss from her best friend. Annemarie is starting middle school and she acts so different around Mark now. Since they have been best friends, she wants to tell him that she wants him for her first kiss, but she also doesn't want to tell him. It is a complicated life for Annemarie. But her's is a great love story.
Recommended for middle school readers, especially girls with a taste for romance.
