Book Cover Flipped
Wendelin Van Draanen

At first, Bryce wanted to avoid Juli at all costs. But Juli wanted to be with Bryce and daydreamed about being his girlfriend. But after several incidents and events, things got flipped. Bryce loved Juli but Juli wanted to be away from him. I liked this book because it has a lot of drama in it. Although drama can be confusing, drama in books can be pretty interesting.

Jerry Spinelli

Donald Zinkoff was an odd boy and was mocked by a lot of his peers. He struggles to make friends because of his odd sense of humor and his clumsiness. Everyone calls him a loser. I liked this book because I felt really bad for Donald and it was a very sad, lonely, yet fun book.
