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.

    • Yeah, I love 'em! It's all I ever read.
    • 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.

I believe that it would be beneficial if we kinda cut down on the baby making. The more people on earth, that means that more resources are being used. In a way gays are doing you a favor. Odds are, early on, gays were most likely killed for being different. So it wasn't like they had to chance to evolve .   If gays/lesbians we made to have babies then gays would not even exist. Just because a century old book says that gays cant be married doesn't mean people are going to listen to it. Modify you bible to the now times. Rules change, so should your's. Interesting... And how do you suggest we do that? Prevent people from having children? Slowly dispatch of the current population? I'm sorry. Life is the most precious  gift. I don't believe we have the right take that away from another. *cough cough* Back to the main topic at hand... I agree that "there are plenty of people, gay and straight, that love each other." You're not wrong in that assumption. However, there are kinds of love -though at the root core it comes with willing the good others. (We should "love one another as He has loved us.") But the attraction and desire to be with another as as man and wife can be one? That's called lust. As a Christian, I believe that such physicality should be reserved for marriage with the intention of bringing new life into the world.  Like any group seen as different, homosexuals have been persecuted (ex: WWII) -as they still are. But in some cultures such as the Roman? Homosexual relationships were actually encouraged. Specifically, male relationships -many, not all, between those of striking age differences. Now do you believe these were sought out for pleasure or out of love? Haha, actually? The Book's been around for well over a century now... Perhaps, maybe there just might be a sufficient reason as to why. Now, to change the rules? Sorry,  no can do. They aren't mine to alter,  though they're certainly mine to follow (;
