In James Patterson's first highly illustrated "diary fiction" story for teens, the mega-bestselling author's most endearing and original teen heroine ever proves that everyone can use a helping hand once in a while. Margaret "Cuckoo" Clarke recently had a brief stay in a mental institution following an emotional breakdown, but she's turning over a new leaf with her "Operation Happiness". She's 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. Cuckoo's also got a nearly impossible mission: she, along with her misfit band of self-deprecating friends (who call themselves "the Freakshow") decide to bridge the gap between warring cliques and "bring the Nations together". Not everyone is so willing to join hands and get along, but Cuckoo never stops smiling... until one of her closest friends, pushed to desperation by a Hater prank, decides that enough is enough.

I don't understand how there are no comments on this book yet! I loved this book. It sends out such a good message, and you really feel like James Patterson "gets it." I finished it in two hours; it definitely isn't a very hard book, but it packs a lot of depth and heart into those pages, and the drawings really bring that out even more! And as Cuckoo said on the very last page "This isn't the end, I don't DO endings," that means we get a sequel sometime soon, and I can't wait for it!

Other: This book does have some adult themes. Curse words are sprinkled throughout the book, there are some intense scenes, and the main character is almost raped. However, these scenes are not anything that most young adults can't handle.

"I'd rather be like them than some spoiled rich kid who pretends he's happy but never gets enough attention from Daddy and doesn't have any real friends because they're all just using him for his money. I'd rather be one of THESE kids any day. In fact, I am one of these kids!"
