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.

No matter how fancy a school is, there will be behaviour problems. Homework can be left to the last minute depending on how tactile you are, after the first few months you'll want to disappear unless you become popular but hang in there! Also, there are three types of people at Middle School or Secondary School:The cacti-The cacti are people who seem hard on the outside [we all have to be in Middle School] but are really lovely and soft if you get to know them. Some cacti can be pricks [no pun intended] but most are nice enough people so a cacti is probably an ideal friend at Middle School.The rocks-AVOID AT ALL COSTS! These are the people who are completely tough and are often bullies. It often seems like they have no emotions because they don't. They are sociopaths and must be avoided. But they are often popular jock kids.The marshmallows-These guys are pretty good, they're soft all the way through and get along well with most people and mostly abide by the rules. They can be hurt easily and roasted because they're so soft. Marshmallows are often smart and get along well with teachers as a result. The only flaw with marshmallows is that some have the tendency to rub their good grades in your face and make you feel insecure but they're nice people mostly.Oh and we can also get cacti rocks and spiky marshmallows.Hope I helped  Teachers are never the enemy!! They're there to help you. They can be a very valuable resource and it is so very important to collaborate with them to make the most of your learning experience!  If you put off a cold attitude and don't speak to people, they're more than likely going to assume you're stuck up and that can make the experience a lot worse than it has to be. Smile, be kind, and if there's someone picking on you, tell a teacher or other staff member, and try to stay out of their path. (I know from experience being an "outsider", it's better not to make yourself a quiet target). im nervous about starting high school.  middle school was alot of fun but you do get alot of classwork and homework. i couldnt have said it any better like you did kirsteeeen.   [s:p/zxl]

    Doctors might be the more ethical choice, but honestly I think a lot of celebrities do deserve high salaries considering the scrutiny, lack of privacy, and judgement they go through. They're human too, and their lives are turned upside down once they become part of the spotlight.  Both are respectable careers, in their own ways, and I think that certain positions in the medical profession should get a raise.
