I was lucky to get onto the blog tour for In the Role of Brie Hutchens written by Nicole Melleby and published by Algonquin which I received through Netgalley. Even though In The Role of Brie Hutchens is a middle grade book it is not afraid to pack a punch and boy did it do that and so much more. I found myself in tears alot throughout my reading of the book. Brie is in 8th grade and will be leaving her Catholic School to go to High School but Brie is finding herself conflicted in so many areas. She is beginning to find out that she likes girls so she finds it difficult as this goes against what her family believes in. One day her Mum nearly finds out what Brie has been hiding from her so Brie tells an untruth and worked to make this lie come true but to no avail. This is my first Nicole Melleby book but I do have her debut book which I am going to read as soon as I can but also every book she has published I will be reading. I feel In the Role of Brie Hutchens is a very important book and I believe it should be added to books which are read in schools. I have no doubt in my mind whatsoever and I have to give this wonderful book 5 stars
