Publisher Comments:

"Before you write me off as some kind of messed-up delusional psycho, think about what it's like to be thrown into a situation where everyone knows everyone . . . and no one knows you." Sadie needs a plan when she starts at Plainfield High School, and she comes up with a good one . . . or so she thinks. But while it seems like a no brainer to pull off a fake peanut allergy, in reality it's a lot harder than it looks. There's the school health form that needs to be filled out by your mom (who you haven't told about the scam). Then there's your mom wanting to meet your friends—what if she serves them snacks? (Peanut butter sandwich, anyone?) And what about that bake sale, when your homeroom teacher thinks you accidentally ate a brownie filled with peanuts?

Synopsis:

"Before you write me off as a delusional psycho, think about what it's like to be thrown into a situation where everyone knows everyone . . . and no one knows you." Sadie has the perfect plan to snag some friends when she transfers to Plainfield High—pretend to have a peanut allergy. But what happens when you have to hand in that student health form your unsuspecting mom was supposed to fill out? And what if your new friends want to come over and your mom serves them snacks? (Peanut butter sandwich, anyone?) And then there's the bake sale, when your teacher thinks you ate a brownie with peanuts. Graphic coming-of-age novels have huge cross-over potential, and Peanut is sure to appeal to adults and teens alike.
