liked it

Molly had to read this for school, so I did too. It was pretty good. She just thought it was boring, boring, boring. It was very different in its style--you had to work hard to get a feeling for the characters because there is no background narration, just the characters' words.
We have to do a creative report on this book, and nothing seems to interest Molly enough, so I am discouraged about that.
This is a modern day book, maybe a little too grownup (with the computer usage and boyfriend/girlfriend stuff) for young readers (I wish the characters were in seventh rather than fifth grade) but deals with that common problem of hating homework!!
