Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen is a story written from two perspectives. Each chapter flips back and forth between Bryce and Juli telling their perspective of what happened. They are currently in 8th grade but to begin they must go back to when Byrce's family moved to the neighborhood when they were 6. Juli fell hard for him and tried to get his attention, annoying Bryce for years. But things happened, attitudes changed and both are left wondering who the other really is. I really liked Juli's spirit and I began to feel sorry for Bryce once I learned more about his family, particularly his father.

Another book for the middle crowd. It is a quick, fun read. I really like how this book goes back and forth with both perspectives.

Next I am re reading Eragon. I need to refresh my memory so I can read Eldest.

My students have enjoyed Flipped so much they want to take it to the lunchroom with them. That speaks volumes.....pun intended!
