From E to You

Dear Annabelle, Hi, my name's Guy. In case you've never heard of me, I'm sending this because my Dad and your Dad think we ought to be e-mail pen-pals. I bet you've got far better things to do than write to a boy you've never even met, so I won't mind if you don't want to bother.

Best wishes,

Guy Woodham


You're right, I've never heard of you. Howeve

Recommends it for: EVERYONE!!!
Wow!! How do you begin to describe a book like this? It's so moving, so unbelievably real. I read it three times, going straight back to the first page after I finished the last!

It was co-written by two authors, Chris d'Lacey author of Fly, Cherokee, Fly and Linda Newbery, who also wrote No Way Back, and is about a boy and girl called Guy and Annabelle, whose fathers are business partners. Guy's dad suggests he emails Annabelle, just for fun, but the two of them end up becoming friends and f

I read this book eight years ago, when I was nine, but I remember it so vividly. I'd love to get hold of a copy and see if I still enjoy it. The things which I remember most about this book are: the girl and the boy think that they're related because their mum's have the same name; their parents had a pancake party; the girl recieves postcards and there is some mystery connected to this; the boy is called Guy and the girl thinks that it's a stupid name so calls him something else in her emails; ...more

Short and sweet. The last fifty pages were very extraneous, and since it was written in 2000/2001, the technical aspects of it (someone being confused by email, the general amazement at the basic functions of email) are already outdated. Overall, though, it was really cute. A love story between two teens introduced to each other as e-pen-pals via their parents, and in the process open up to each other, get things in their lives severely confused, and fall in love. It was a nice library read for ...more

When Annabelle's parents insist that she start an e-mail correspondence with a strange boy, she is none too enthusiastic. Guy feels very similar. However, in spite of their reservations they become real friends... and who knows, maybe something more!

This is a unique book written by two popular authors and told entirely in e-mail format - a must-read.

This was a good book! I like books that have sort of a mystery to them and this one has kind of a mystery behind the locket... you will have to read it to find out about that. The whole book is e-mails because the main characters, Guy and Anabelle, become e-mail pen pals. I would recommend this book to everyone. You should read it.

This is a sweet book. I love how it's written entirely in emails, and I love how the story has a life of its own outside the emails. I love Annabelle; she's a really awesome, round, zesty character. This book is awesome. :)

An okay book, lightly entertaining. My edition hadn't been proof-read very well, a lot of typo's like jumping from page 202 to 223 then back to 204! Very annoying!

Thought it was really cool actually.. I was surprisingly hooked from page one!
I only hope, that there will be a 2nd book, so we can find out what happened to A and G.. :)

Wasn't bad, quite a nice easy read, though Annabelle can get on your nerves a little! Nice twisty ending!
Hate it when I can't get my hands on a copy...

Cute, and laugh out loud funny sometimes!
Some things were a little too inappropriate, though which affected my enjoyment of everything else.

Hee hee. Annabelle's so damn sassy and Guy's just so gorgeous (personality-wise, I mean) that you can't help but fall in love with this book.

This book was cute, and romantic. It showed that when love comes into the picture, nothing else matters. Not age, not hair color, nothing.
