Your best friend hates you. The guy you liked hates you. Your entire group of friends hates you.

All because you did the right thing.

Welcome to life for Mena, whose year is starting off in the worst way possible. She's been kicked out of her church group, and no one will talk to her - not even her own parents. No one except for Casey, her supersmart lab partner in science class, who's pretty funny for the most brilliant guy on earth.

And when Ms. Shepherd begins the unit on evolution, school becomes more dramatic than Mena could ever imagine...and her own life is about to evolve in some amazing and unexpected ways. Download and start listening now!

    " Clean, smart Chick-lit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 2/16/2014

    " I really liked the author's take on religion and evolution, and especially the evolution of oneself. We all evolve whether some believe from an animal or just from a former version of ourselves. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 2/1/2014

    " It is a funny book. The story seems kind of messy and weird. It would be good to know why everybody hates Mena. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 ♥Jessica♥ | 1/27/2014

    " I loved this book. It was extremely thought provoking and I'm still chewing it over in my mind. I stand by my beliefs, but there are things in this world like this that just make you think about them. I like it. After all, God gave us brains. It'd be a shame to waste them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kara | 1/17/2014

    " This was a great listen that really made you think about the current hot topic of evolution vs. creationism. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maggie | 1/10/2014

    " 3.5 stars. Where was this book when I was in high school? And more importantly, where was Ms. Shepherd? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debi | 1/7/2014

    " Evolution, Me, and Other Freaks of Nature, by Robin Brande is a book I resisted for a while, for some reason. The first few pages didn't snag my attention, but it turned out to be an idea I could have hatched myself. The narrator and I have some common experiences. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gina Sujin Pyo | 12/7/2013

    " Funny; interesting "

    " YA book; a Christian fundementalist teen becoming enlightened due to a good science teacher and yucky peers. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 LaLa | 3/14/2012

    " Almost like Judy Bloom for the recovering fundamentalist girl. Hmmmmm "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brooke | 2/11/2012

    " This argument for the possibility of science and faith existing in a non-encroaching harmony in teen novel's clothing is pretty good. Brande does a nice job of creating believable and likeable characters and fleshes out what could easily have been a didactic drudge. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Clark | 9/19/2011

    " This book manages to address faith, bullying, ostracism, and the beauty of science all at once. Oh, and there is romance and puppies, too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber Teen Librarian | 5/28/2011

    " This book is awesome! It is a good example of keeping your faith and not following the crowd. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dina | 5/17/2011

    " I loved this book!!!! It's smart and sad and funny, and it made me think. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christina | 5/8/2011

    " I adore this book. I just finished it and am ready to turn to page 1 and start again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brenda | 5/3/2011

    " Book on CD. I actually really liked this book. As a person of faith and a scientist I have never felt there was a conflict between the two, and ultimately this book supported that. I enjoyed how the main charactor developed throughout the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jared | 4/19/2011

    " Another book I'd love to use as a read-aloud; there's no questionable content, and it's a great way for teens to understand the debates over evolution and creationism in public schools in recent years. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carley | 4/4/2011
