A Few Seconds of Radiant Filmstrip by Kevin Brockmeier

The entire focus of this memoir is the author’s experience of seventh grade. Brockmeier tells the story of his twelve-year old self in third person: He is Kevin, a kid “who cries too easily and laughs too easily” but “he is trying hard not to be him anymore, that kid.” What comes next is a chronicle of awareness, of awkward first kisses, and friends that turn enemies, and creativity squashed and encouraged and squashed again. Kevin is the kind of kid that knows awkwardness and loneliness and small victories while they are happening. His 12-year-old self is astute and awake enough to grasp exactly how harrowing growing up can be.
