Julianna is so crazy about her neighbor Bryce, she can't think straight. Check out Kidzworld's review of Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen

Author: Wendelin Van Draanen

Have you ever been so crazy about a certain guy or gal that you just can't think straight? That's exactly how Julianna Baker has felt about Bryce Loski... since she was seven. She's chased him around and daydreamed about sharing her first kiss with him for more than six years now but does that mean Bryce feels the same way? Nope. Bryce has wanted nothing to do with Juli and has spent the past six years scheming to get away from her.


Different Worlds

Flipped is a book that's written in a really unique way. Each chapter switches narration from Bryce talking to Juli talking, so you really do get both sides of the story. It's fun because each character has a very distinctive voice, and you soon feel as though you have known Juli and Bryce your whole life.


More Than Just a Summer Romance

When you start to read Flipped you might think it's going to be a cheesy, romance novel that you'll breeze through with a smile on your face. And although it definitely had a lot of the elements you look for in a quick rainy day read, Flipped also has a ton of twists and turns you couldn't have possibly imagined, making it all the more readable. So track down Flipped to read as you head back to school. It's guaranteed to impress.

1 Flipped was an awesome book. I like how the characters changed throughout the book and I almost cried when Bryce chased after Juli after he tried to kiss her and I thought it was so sweet when he planted that tree for her. I just wish I knew what happened after he planted the tree and what she did in return.

    • Only if they have a good plot.
    • I'll read them every once and a while.
    • No way. I'm more of a Harry Potter fan.

    Since society is so used to women wearing make-up, so they are not used to seeing men wear make-up. In my opinion, I don't care if men wear or don't wear make-up. If they want to look nice then go for it. They shouldn't care what others have to say. If it makes them happy then they should go ahead and do it.
