You're Welcome, Universe by Whitney Gardner - ADVISABLE

Gardner, Whitney  You’re Welcome, Universe,  293 pages. Alfred A. Knopf, 2017. $17.99. 

Language: R (69 swears, 36 ‘F’); Mature Content: PG (kissing); Violence: PG.

Fourteen year old Julia gets kicked out of her deaf school. Julia did graffiti on school property and her best friend Jordyn (at the time), ratted her out to the principal. Julia has to go to a hearing school, and she doesn’t know anybody. It is tough for her knowing a language of her own, while a new school makes fun of her for it. Meanwhile, she is in a graffiti battle with someone and she doesn't know why. Julia doesn't know if she knows this person fighting with her, but she keeps on trying to find whoever it is. Maybe it is someone she doesn't really expect it to be. 

I liked the book a lot and I can relate to some of it. It did swear a lot, but it was understandable. I can understand what she is going through, and I like how she was dealing with it, even though it was very stressful. I liked the writing for the book, and it worked out really good.  Except for the swearing, it was a great book, and I would recommend this book because, it was very interesting to read, and it seemed like a fun adventure to go on. If there was another book that comes out as a second part I would definitely read it.
