I know it's totally lame that I actually spent a couple hours of my (adult) life reading this book. I had read it as a kid, and the other day I came across it at the library and just had to revisit it. It's not bad and surprisingly holds up pretty well (it was published in the early 80s). The depiction of the delicate sensibilities and ephemeral friendships of middle school girls seemed spot-on, and everyone can sympathize with having a huge crush on a teacher.
