In a return to middle-grade fiction, master of perspectives Jo Knowles depicts a younger sibling struggling to maintain his everyday life when his older sister is in crisis.Noah is just trying to make it through seventh grade. The girls are confusing, the homework is boring, and even his friends are starting to bug him. Not to mention that his older sister, Emma, has been acting pretty strange, even though Noah thought she'd been doing better ever since the Thing They Don't Talk About. The only place he really feels at peace is in art class, with a block of clay in his hands. As it becomes clear through Emma's ever-stricter food rules and regulations that she's not really doing better at all, the normal seventh-grade year Noah was hoping for begins to seem pretty unattainable. In an affecting and realistic novel with bright spots of humor, Jo Knowles captures the complexities of navigating middle school while feeling helpless in the face of a family crisis.… (més)

Noah attends a small school in the US that has, among other things, a resident school cat and a suggestion box. There are always tensions between him and his very different best friends sam and Ryan, and this year it seems to be girls that are causing the friction. On top of this, Noah is noticing things about his older sister Emma that make him very fearful about the possible future - will the family be thrust back into the "Thing They Don't Talk About" again, and if so, will he be left feeling like his opinion doesn't count like the last time.
A very true to life school story with a family mystery twist and quite realistic conversations between Noah and his mates.
Loved the part with the cat, and the portrayal of various teachers like The Tank. One for Middle school students. ( )

This is four stars only because it's a hard sell, I think. The first half cracked me up, all alone on my couch (lots of juvenile fart jokes, but really funny juvenile fart jokes). The second half gets intense in a way that doesn't have a neat resolution, because anorexia often doesn't. I'm not sure how easy it will be to pitch such a tonally split book. But I'm going to try, because I loved it!

Like [b:Because of Mr. Terupt|7783920|Because of Mr. Terupt|Rob Buyea|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1320456974s/7783920.jpg|10714283], but only one point of view, and less neat at the end... a sense of humor like [b:The Strange Case of Origami Yoda|7150174|The Strange Case of Origami Yoda (Origami Yoda, #1)|Tom Angleberger|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1441744261s/7150174.jpg|7415356] but with that shift to a serious illness story halfway through... like [b:Goodbye Stranger|23615709|Goodbye Stranger|Rebecca Stead|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1439670673s/23615709.jpg|43219487] or even more like [b:Counting Thyme|25938399|Counting Thyme|Melanie Conklin|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1441722559s/25938399.jpg|40734627], but funnier... like [b:Winger|11861815|Winger (Winger, #1)|Andrew Smith|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1367927656s/11861815.jpg|16818567] but for younger kids, not ungodly long, and without a use of a gay character that pissed me off... I don't know. ( )

What a wonderful insight into the minds of middle school boys. As a mother of three girls, I enjoyed the conversations, friendships and trials & tribulations on these kids. The viewpoint of the eating disorder from a young teen's perspective was presented realistically. I liked that the resolution is ongoing and not abruptly cured. I'm hoping my own 8th grader will enjoy this as much as I did. ( )

STILL A WORK IN PROGRESS by Jo Knowles follows a seventh grader navigating world of middle school.

Noah feels most comfortable in art class. Life outside the art room is filled with friendship complexities, a sister with an eating disorder, and family issues. A hairless cat named Curly provides a humorous subplot.

Knowles creates a believable world with realistic dialog and authentic situations.

Librarians will find that middle-grade youth enjoy the balance of realistic fiction and humor. The themes of mental health and eating disorders are popular with this age group. However, the male perspective makes this book particularly distinct.

"I am not afraid of Molly Lo," Ryan tells me from inside the stall in the boys' bathroom. He refuses to use the urinal, just like everyone else.
