Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen
Flipped is a romance told in two voices. The first time Juli Baker saw Bryce Loski, she flipped. The first time Bryce saw Juli, he ran. That’s pretty much the pattern for these two neighbors until the eighth grade, when, just as Juli is realizing Bryce isn’t as wonderful as she thought, Bryce is starting to see that Juli is pretty amazing. How these two teens manage to see beyond the surface of things and come together makes for a comic and poignant romance.
Talk about a character change. Told from 2 different points of view, this book had me mesmerized. Love the author’s style. Can’t wait to read the next one by her!!
Great upper elementary grade book! Maybe 5th and up. 🙂
