Dear Opl is such a delightful book. Opal is 13 and her life has not been super, as of late. She is dealing with the death of her father, a mother who is not on the scene and so much more, so she turns to sweets. It doesn't matter the type of candy, she turns to it. This, of course, means that she gains weight. What happens next will help any middle-school age teen see options to dealing with difficulty issues.
The characters in this book are so colorful and are made to appeal to the audience. I could see many of the students I taught of this age enjoying this book immensely.
I was given this book by NetGalley and SOURCEBOOKS Jabberwocky in exchange for my honest review.
