I absolutely adore this book and have since I first read it 5 years ago! Rowan is a beautiful, quirky character - this is such a comfort read!

This book was funny, cheerful, innocent... Exactly what I was looking for in today's barrage of books with the f-word in them. :) The only thing I found lacking was that I wanted to see the Rowan/Marlon romance developed more. It was kind of funny, the way Marlon kept staring at her and she pretended not to notice. Unfortunately, it was all blown off at the end. Pretty disappointing, actually.

Loved this from when I bought it (the day it came out). If someone asked me what my favourite book was after I first read it, I said 'The Raspberry Rules.' If someone asked me now I would say, 'The Raspberry Rules.' Loved this book soooooo much. Best Book Ever!!!

I still remember ordering this from Amazon when they had a sale where they were shipping books to South Africa. I was so excited, as I'd read a few of the Ally's World books and I absolutely adored Rowan's character. Because I decided to marathon the Ally's World series, I thought I'd read The Raspberry Rules, as it's from the POV of Ally's older sister.

The Raspberry Rules is from Rowan's POV, Ally's (from Ally's World) older sister. Rowan is unique. She experiments with lots of different styles

i love the overall message of this book and i am really inspired by Rowan's character and how she doesn't really care what people think at the end

It was a good book but it was hard to believe that the girl was in year nine the way her character was.
