    I finished and reviewed an arc before it s published What a concept.I can see why the kiddos love this and other realistic series even though this is set FIFTY years in the past, weren t the 70s like 30 years ago right Sunny rates herself on the groovy meter throughout the book, but really she s rating herself by her friends standards and not her own She begins to play DD, while she had already begun comics back in book 1 Fun Also, Dale is doing better in this book, so good I finished and reviewed an arc before it s published What a concept.I can see why the kiddos love this and other realistic series even though this is set FIFTY years in the past, weren t the 70s like 30 years ago right Sunny rates herself on the groovy meter throughout the book, but really she s rating herself by her friends standards and not her own She begins to play DD, while she had already begun comics back in book 1 Fun Also, Dale is doing better in this book, so good news all around

    This is a cute story, about a middle schooler in the 70s who doesn t fit in with her childhood girlfriends any Instead, she finds a group of nerdy guys and finds she LOVES playing DD I didn t much like how some of the characters were drawn.

    So lovely to have another Sunny book She is now navigating the mysteries of middle school, the issue of friendships changing and finding one s own group of people Loved the references to the 70 s and DD Funny how enduring that game is My own sons played for hours and hours in our basement in the early 90 s and my grandsons play now A total delight

    I read this ARC yesterday and loved it on the first page Holm checks all my boxes, 70s groove, feminist, breaking gender stereotypes, learning how to find your tribe Etc I can already think of some readers who will love this one

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Really enjoyed it and love that she follows her nerdy heart in the end but what in the world about Deb Can t Sunny love DD and still find a way to be close to Deb Sad about that, though maybe it s realistic

    I got this ARC at BookCon.Sunny just started seventh grade, and she s struggling to be groovy like all the girls in the teen magazines Obviously, Sunny lives in the 70s early 80s can you tell I haven t read any of the Sunny books before When a group of her guy friends start playing Dungeons and Dragons, Sunny is excited for it, even though her best friend Deb is a little less than enthused Sunny struggles to both be groovy as rated by a groovy meter throughout and to do the things she I got this ARC at BookCon.Sunny just started seventh grade, and she s struggling to be groovy like all the girls in the teen magazines Obviously, Sunny lives in the 70s early 80s can you tell I haven t read any of the Sunny books before When a group of her guy friends start playing Dungeons and Dragons, Sunny is excited for it, even though her best friend Deb is a little less than enthused Sunny struggles to both be groovy as rated by a groovy meter throughout and to do the things she likes doing, even if they re babyish The vintage fashions and trends were fun to read about, although I m not sure how a middle grade audience would perceived them That struggle of growing up and growing out of little kid stuff is eternal, however, and readers will be able to relate to Sunny not being ready to give up her childhood The resolution doesn t wrap up the tension between Deb and Sunny, though I liked that Sunny view spoiler chooses to follow her interests and keep playing DD hide spoiler , but I wanted her to clear the air with Deb a bitGiven that this is a series, that might be an ongoing issue that will be resolved in a later book Readers of Raina Telgemeier would enjoy this book it might skew a little younger, too

    It s 1977 and 12 year old Sunny is struggling to be a groovy girl Her friends are turning their interests towards clothes and boys, while Sunny herself has become enraptured with a brand new game Dungeons Dragons Can Sunny be groovy and still be true to herself The book itself feelsstale than Ms Holm s previous Sunny titles The story of the middle grade girl becoming a fan of an uncool activity while struggling to maintain her old friendships has been trod upon many times It s 1977 and 12 year old Sunny is struggling to be a groovy girl Her friends are turning their interests towards clothes and boys, while Sunny herself has become enraptured with a brand new game Dungeons Dragons Can Sunny be groovy and still be true to herself The book itself feelsstale than Ms Holm s previous Sunny titles The story of the middle grade girl becoming a fan of an uncool activity while struggling to maintain her old friendships has been trod upon many times Victoria Jamieson s Roller Girl immediately comes to mind , and the latter is the better story Moreover, Dale s near absence from the book feels like a missed opportunity, as Sunny s older brother has had his own struggles with finding his true self Overall, however, the story shines largely because of Sunny no pun intended She has always been well written by the Holm siblings, and I genuinely felt Sunny s conflicting affiliations to old friends and new The story is true to the middle grade experience, and I d recommend the book despite its flaws.From an ARC
