From the acclaimed author of Hurricane Season, an unforgettable story about what makes a family, for fans of Hazel’s Theory of Evolution and Ivy Aberdeen’s Letter to the World.
Eleven-year-old Joey is angry. All the time. And she doesn’t understand why. She has two loving moms, a supportive older half brother, and, as a triplet, she’s never without company. Her life is good. But sometimes she loses her temper and lashes out, like the time she threw a soccer ball—hard—at a boy in gym class and bruised his collarbone. Or when jealousy made her push her (former) best friend (and crush), Layla, a little bit too roughly.
After a meltdown at Joey’s apartment building leads to her family’s eviction, Joey is desperate to figure out why she’s so mad. A new unit in science class makes her wonder if the reason is genetics. Does she lose control because of something she inherited from the donor her mothers chose?
The Science of Being Angry is a heartwarming story about what makes a family and what makes us who we are from an author whose works are highly praised for their presentation of and insights into the emotional lives of tweens.
"This emotional read shows the power of friendship and family without omitting the work that goes into loving someone.” —Booklist, Starred Review
"Joey has scrappy determination, and readers can’t help but be charmed by her and her lovable and well-developed cast of family and friends. Joey’s inner thoughts and desperation to better understand her impulses builds empathy for those grappling with similar struggles....A strong recommendation for readers who enjoy contemplative, character-driven stories.” —School Library Journal, Starred Review
“Impressive … powerfully crafted with a satisfying conclusion, and it tackles uncommon but critical themes with nuance and complexity. A strong novel about strong feelings.” —Kirkus Reviews

Another wonderful story from Melleby.
I was a huge fan of "How to become a planet" so I knew I had to get this audiobook. And thankfully it did not disappoint. A hard-hitting story with a great message. Please check it out if you get the chance.
