Assigned to Lizzie McGuire as required reading during one of her school classes, The Orchids and Gumbo Poker Club finally puts into print this "lost classic," for which Lizzie fans have been fruitlessly searching since they saw Lizzie reading it during the "Mom's Best Friend" episode on Disney Channel's hit Lizzie McGuire television series.

Great story for a mother and daughter to read together. This book isn't really a Lizzie McGuire book in fact it doesn't invole her at all. It just tells a story of a girl from New Orleans who falls in love and it's beautiful!

I have read this book many times and I never seem to grow tired of it. The funny, witty comentary by Lizzie makes this book all the more enjoyable!

I really like this book because it is part of the volume of Lizzie McGuire. I use to love her shows on t.v. so i brought her volume to read. In this book she writes doodles on the margins like she's interpreting the book like we do in school. I think that it is really romantic where her family helps Darcy to get into a ball she wants to go and find her love. But at the end, her love is the person she knows. I think that if you want to find a person to love, why not look closer and not farther. T ...more

If you haven't read this book you should. It's a really sweet mother/daughter book. I like the plot line and it kept me entertained throughout the whole book.

I was suddenly reminded of one of my favourites from my childhood. It was a great read that was made more enjoyable by the humorous annotations by Lizzie in the margins!

The first story is about Lizzie running for class president against a boy who agrees to swallow worms for votes, and a cheerleader. At first Miranda and Gordo are strongly behind her, but gradually the political aspect of trying to please different groups of people causes Lizzie to go overboard to the point where she alienates both Miranda and Gordo.

She becomes too much of a politician and too little of a friend. A fairly cute story.In the second story, Gordo is complaining that he's under a lot

I picked this book up at a garage sale and it was really pretty good. I use to watch Lizzie McGuire several years ago and I even remembered the episode this book is built around. This is a mother daughter story that takes place in the deep south, it's very touching and even humorous because this book was an assignment for Lizzie and she adds her notes and pictures in the margin of the book so you get two stories for the price of you.

It was a very quick read, I read it in an hour, but I still enj

I first read this book when I was obsessed with everything Hilary Duff (and thus, Lizzie McGuire) about 7 or 8 years ago... I have read it so many times since that I might even be able to recite it. It's definitely one of my favourite books of all time, even though it doesn't really have anything to do with Lizzie McGuire (other than her notes written in the margins). This is seriously the best romance book ever for teenage girls, and a beautiful story of friendship. Ever since I read it I have ...more
I remember when I was a kid I LOVED Lizzie McGuire books. I thought this was a pretty neat idea because when I was a kid if there was a book that wasn't real that everyone in a TV show loved i always wished I could read it. But this was pretty meh. I mean, I wasn't expecting much from a Lizzie McGuire book because those are not known for appealing to adults. So 3/5.

OKAY. I just want to review this shortly. But this was one of my favorite books when I was younger and one of the reasons I started reading for fun. THIS WAS SO FUNNY AND NICE AND BEAUTIFUL AND YES YES YES. Read it, this is such a fun read!

too bad this is from the tv show Lizzie McGuire, it makes it sound like a childish book but I swear it's actually not! It's actually really touching and amazing

I read this when I was a kid and I loved it so much I even wrote a book report about it for our school project.

Obviously the author shipped Lizzie and Gordo as much as the rest of us did... Um... I mean, she shipped Darcy Lou and Gator... Yeah, that's it...

This was a fun book. I never actually watched Lizzie Mcguire, but it was still entertaining. It was very over the top and was like reading one big cliche, but it was still fun to read and funny.
