Abby, Bess, and Cristy are best friends-period, end of story. Until Bess said, "Zack's cute," and the two words sent the three friends into a tailspin. Zack, you see, was Abby's long, long, longtime crush. Gasp! Poor Abby has never even worried about the possibility of someone else liking Zack. Even if she had, she never would've suspected that the someone would be Bess! T ...more

There's cheesy, girly books that you can't help but enjoy as guilty pleasures . . . and then there's the crappy, childish ones.

Gossip Times Three is all about betrayal . . . over nothing. Sure, Bess dates Zack, Abby's long-time crush. But so what? Abby never expressed her crush for him . . . at least not enough anyway. And there's Cristy, who I think she's only there to be pathetic and pick sides. I wanted to strangle every single of these characters. Including the narrator (A.K.A. Gilda), but I

I seriously regret of buying this book! So actually i was in desperate of a good book to read, and had little time to shop, so i was just going through the shelves, and spotted this book. When i read the synopsis, i thought it was ok, and decided to buy it.

So at first, the story is okay, typical girls in school crushing over boys blah blah blah. Well, actually, i guess the story line is nice and good, BUT the big problem is how the author wrote/tell it to us. She puts a lot of like brackets "(

Like every other review states, at first this book seemed very good. But then it got worse they excessive use of like in every sentence (is like really annoying its like really upsetting that my age group always talks like this) ... See what I mean. And that 'twist' that happened at the end... I kind of saw it coming. If that wasn't bad enough the author, Amy Koss put herself in her own book as a famous author. No just no

They were young so I didnt really enjoy it, but I can imagine liking it in elementary school and maybe middle school. The author jumped around a lot and got off topic, which I think was supposed to make it fun, but it got a little annoying after a while, more annoying than the whole THREE thing.

Hilarious! A story of gossip, as three girls in 7th grade have a falling out over boys. The narrator turns out to be someone you don't expect. There's also romance among their moms. Light and fluffy.

Gossip times three is a really good book. If your best friend has ever had a crush on the same boy you did, then this book is a good book for you! Amy Golman Koss is a creative author and she makes you want to keep reading. So, if you like books with drama and action, then I suggest reading Gossip Times Three!

This book was pretty bad. I was able to make it to the end, but it was really a waste of time. It's written to sound like a teenager wrote it, but honestly, I think most teenagers would do a better job. The plot, which is boring to begin with, can take place in THREE pages, but is purposely side noted to last 170. All of the parts that are meant to be funny are just annoying. Do yourself a favor and pick a different book.

This is another book where all three "threads" pulled together in the end, and I really liked that. It was different from all "girly" books, in a good way.
