Homeroom Diaries product reviews

Margaret (Cuckoo) Clarke recently had a brief stay in a mental institution following an emotional breakdown, but she is turning over a new leaf with her 'Operation Happiness'. She is determined to beat down the bad vibes of the Haters, the Terror Teachers, and all of the trials and tribulations of high school by writing and drawing in her diary. And when life gets really tough, she works through her own moments of uncertainty through imaginary conversations with her favorite literary characters.

What first drew me to this book was the cover rt. The hot pink of the cover, with the white and yellow font. The font looked almost hand-drawn but was glossy and raised against the matt pink. I just found that so striking. I didn't even look inside, but I hoped it would be an easy read.

As it turns out, this book was incredibly easy to read. It is set out in 77 chapters, but they are really short. That meant that I could easily read a chapter here and there, and to be honest though it's around 250 pages I was done in less than a day. It is unusual for me to read that much in less than 24 hours, but there you have it.

I found this book really engaging. It's been a while since I was in high school, but I did relate really well with the main character and many of her friends. The things that happen to her in the book are unbelievable but not in a "what was the author thinking?" way, just in a how can one person deal with all of that going on and be so okay. I really found her to be a very strong but totally real kind of character.

Even right down to her little fantasies, I use to be quite similar. Off in a daydream at school when things got a bit much. It made me feel a lot less weird, which I wish for every teenager. Honestly, it's just a crap time for many of us as we question our worth and all that sort of thing. And this book was really about saying that and a bit like a hug in a way. Plus the wrap up ending was pretty much as I hoped. If there is a sequel I will be there!
