Still a Work in Progress

author: Jo Knowles

Noah is just trying to make it through seventh grade. The girls are confusing, the homework is boring, and his older sister, Emma, has been acting pretty strange, even though Noah thought she’d been better about eating. The only place he really feels at peace is in art class, with a block of clay in his hands. As it becomes clear through Emma’s ever-stricter food rules and regulations that she’s not really doing better at all, the normal seventh-grade year Noah was hoping for begins to seem pretty unattainable. In an affecting and realistic novel with bright spots of humor, Jo Knowles captures the complexities of navigating middle school while feeling helpless in the face of a family crisis.

“Knowles sensitively explores the pain of having a sibling with an eating disorder. . . . A realistic look at how one person’s severe illness can adversely affect everyone around them.” — Publishers Weekly
