This book is really well writen. I love the form of Letters, Journals, and e-mails. Keeps you wondering what form will come next.

Overall, this book has comedy, romance (Nice love-hate-love relationship), and adventure (The trouble that they get into at school). This book does have some references more for an older group, and some swearing. I would think this book is good for ages 14 and up. Maybe a mature 12-13 year old too. Make sure to check out this GREAT read. I am going to look into some other books by Jaclyn Moriarty for sure!
Told entirely through its characters' notes, letters, diaries, and e-mails, this book is the laugh-out-loud story of three girls figuring out who they are - and one friendship that lasts no matter what.
