Reviewed by Hayley

Julianna doesn't understand why Bryce doesn't like her. She just can't resist his blue eyes, the reason she chases after that kiss, or so she convinces herself. Bryce, on the other hand, thinks that Juli is a know-it-all, show off, good for nothing busybody. No matter what he tries, he just can't seem to shake her off, until he finds out her "secret" and tells his best friend.

Flipped is written by Wendelin Van Draanen, also the author of the Sammy Keys Mystery series, and Swear to Howdy, which is coming out this October. This soft cover novel has 212 pages of realistic fiction, suitable for most intermediate readers.

I laughed my way through Flipped. I really liked the goofy humour and weird twists, and the perspective from both Juli and Bryce in alternating chapters. The characters were so believable. It was as if you were there, hearing and watching everything that was going on. I rate this book 5 stars.
