"I am feeling "exious" - excited and nervous at the same time, but that's not a real word. How does one fit in in a new continent, country and culture? What's acceptable and what's not? Will I make any friends here, ever?" Not Your Type of Girl takes you into the lives of three 5th graders telling their respective intertwined perspectives of their first week at school in their own words. NYTOG is a fun, amusing, light-hearted and relatable read for young readers. It is a good read for parents curious to get an insider's perspective on what really goes on in their child's life and mind after they drop them off to the school!Myra Goyal has been writing, drawing and illustrating since she was 5.
