I read this book 12 times when I was in 6th grade. I guess I loved it! It's the first YA book I remember reading. The other one was Who Stole Darcy's Diary. I read that one twice.

I really enjoyed this book because Sara shows Emily that you can't let people push you around and you have to be strong. Although they end up in some argument which result in them not talking to each other, they become best friends.

I remember less about this book than I do about the sheer hatred that I felt toward it at the time. I remained convinced that "kissy stuff" was gross well into my teens, and checked this book out not because of the flap copy, but because I liked the author and there was a girl in pigtails on the cover. And then it turned out to be about adolescence and sexual awakening and ohh, I was SO MAD. In retrospect this is hilarious.

I really enjoyed this book because Sara shows Emily that you can't let people push you around and you have to be strong. Although they end up in some arguments which result in them not talking to each other, they become best friends. It portrays a really good moral especially to younger kids because it contributes in shaping the person that they will become, and it shows them the aftermath of their actions in different perspectives. I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to people who gener ...more

I grew up in a small shingled house down at the end of Guilford Road in College Park, Maryland. Our block was loaded with kids my age. We spent hours outdoors playing "Kick the Can" and "Mother, May I" as well as cowboy and outlaw games that usually ended in quarrels about who shot whom. In the summer, we went on day long expeditions into forbidden territory -- the woods on the other side of the t ...more
