Flipped, by Wendelin Van Draanen

Flipped. Wendelin Van Draanen. Young adult fiction about the relationship between boy and girl neighbors. Bryce tries to dissuade Juli from crushing on him, but just as she realizes he's not the perfect guy she thought he was, he realizes he wants to be. 4 stars. Best thing: Baby Chickens! Also: The lesson to like people for who they are, not what they look like. Worst Thing: Overly Dramatic. Every time the grandfather spoke, I thought, 'people don't really talk like this.' Generally, the author is far better at writing dialogue for teens than for adults.

Okay, to be honest, the lesson was better than the baby chickens. But baby chickens are much easier to draw.
