For a middle-grade / Young-Adult read, Something Wiki was a surprisingly painful read. Jo is a twelve-year-old girl, who's life and worldview are about to change. She is worried about her appearance, but mostly she is concerned about fitting in at school and about old, but now estranging friends.
Jo's family life is also a messed up. After hearing the news that her older brother is going to be a father and he moves back home with his girlfriend. Her brother moving back creates tension in Waller's house and some old secrets are revealed.
Something Wiki is a psychologically realistic story about realistic characters. I couldn't like any of them in the book, I was only able to empathize with them. Somehow this novel managed rip my soul into pieces for a short while. By the end of the story, the pieces were put together again, although not completely anymore.
