by Sylvia R., Lindale Middle School

Keiko Carter is a rising seventh grader with a tight knit group of best friends, Audrey and Jenna. She is looking forward to getting through middle school with her friends together, through crushes and first dates to joining new clubs. But when Audrey and Jenna start fighting, Keiko's plan of having a perfect seventh grade year starts to go down the drain. She has to be the peacekeeper for her two best friends, while also dealing with her mother being distant and a boy she has a crush on.

“Keep It Together, Keiko Carter” is a great story dealing with friendships, growing up, and finding yourself while trying to stay afloat. The characters were all very raw in their feelings and their choices, and even the people who were antagonists in this story still had a reason for acting the way they did towards the other characters. This is a simple and sweet story of realizing your worth and growing up as a teen. I enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it. As an eighth grader, I thought I was just the right age to read this book. I think anyone from the ages of 10-13 would love Keiko Carter and the story she tells.
