First off, I really enjoyed this when I was younger.

Now? Not so much.

I do not exactly get why there are so many good ratings for this book. Even when I was younger, I prefered other Candy Apple books to this one. Try Star-Crossed for example. Or The Sister Switch. This one wasn't that interesting- I mean, seriously? It's only about a girl who desperately wants to befriend another girl. How stupid.

This is what occured to me the second time I read this: Audrey Jones is a lesbian. I don't mean to b
Audrey has been friends with Carmen since like forever but when a new girl arrives at school, Audrey goes out of her way to try to become friends with the new girl as far as making a "slam book" because she just has to know what the new girl thinks about her!

I really wanted to smack Audrey upside her head! You don't diss a friend like she did just to make a new friend. Besides what kind of example does that show the potential new friend that if another new person comes along you may do them the
I didn't really like the main character very much. She just seemed a little bit too eager to found out whether or not the new girl liked her. I didn't not like her because of that, but because she almost lost her friendship with her best friend that she already had (don't get me wrong, I know she just wanted a new friend and it is good to make new friends, but there are other ways to get new friends than to start a really mean and rude slam book. That is why schools had banned then in the first ...more
Rumor has it

When a new girl named Mailee moves into their town, Audrey becomes excited with how happy, fun, and friendly she is to everyone. Audrey knows she wants to become friends with Mailee, but she is afraid to ask. To find out what Mailee thinks of her, Audrey starts a gossip book. The rules are easy. Everyone uses a number, not their name, when they write information about other people, they have to do it alone. When they're done, they have to sneakily pass it on to the next person.When r

This book is about a girl, Audrey Jones. There came a new girl in town. Audrey thought that she seems nice and wants to make friends but Audrey doesn't know what Mailee (the new girl) thinks of her. Audrey started a slam book to find out what Mailee thinks of herself but slam books are against the rule in her school! Will Audrey find the real truth and yet avoid the trouble of getting caught of starting a slam book? (I'm making this sound like the blurb aren't I? )

Audrey has a really good friend in Carmen, but when a new girl arrives, Audrey would really like to be her friend. Mailee is fun and exciting, but everyone wants to be her friend and Audrey doesn't know where she stands with her. Even though it's against the school rules (in large part due to her older sister Gen!), Audrey starts a slam book. This quickly gets out of control, and while the questions and answers start out nice, they quickly become mean. Mailee doesn't like slam books, and Carmen ...more

i think it is a good book
Borrowed from the Little Library. Very cute, but goodness me Audrey is such a flake - it was obvious from the first dark look that Carmen was feeling left out and hard done by, and why wouldn't she be? They're bffs but suddenly Audrey is investing all her time and energy into finding out if the new girl likes her or not, and she isn't above using Carmen in her quest either. I'm pretty sure that even if I was the target age group I'd still be annoyed by her ;)
This was a fairly ok book. SUPER short, like all Candy Apple books, but good for young readers (as in, younger than me). The character's aren't all that well developed, and it gets a little annoying about how Audrey is so obsessed with getting Mailee to like her. It's also extremely obviously that Carmen is annoyed with Audrey because Audrey is (like I said above) obsessed w/getting Mailee to like her, but for whatever reason Audrey doesn't see it.

it was a nice book not really amazing but nice it had lots of drama and stuff but for me she didnt have to go through all that just to know if mailee likes her or not she could ask her to hang around and seen if she likes her then

I like this book! The thing is this can happen in modern day life!.. I was surprised at the end.. I am not going to be a spoiler so I won't say much!;) I would suggest to read it, some may like it, some may don't. But I do!
I read this book recently. I think Audrey should have just asked Mailee if she liked her instead of starting a slam book and all of that trouble. I think Carmen should have been nicer. She was spiteful.
Right know i am on chapter 9 it is so good that i want to read every second so really encourage young readers to read these books
