A VERY GOOD BOOK!!!!!! June 16 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
I Loved this book because most of the stories are written by kids my age.Most the stories are true and are real life experiences, and i like that. i read the whole book in one day, because it was sooo interesting. I would recomend buying this, for a preteen and even a teen!! The stories really convinced of whats important in life, now i say " I Love you" to be family every night!

turned me off at the first story Feb. 6 2009
By third time mom - Published on
Format: Paperback
I read the first story on the "search inside this book" feature and that was enough to convince me NOT to buy this book and to give it a negative review. The first story is about a girl who switches schools, makes friends, and gains self confidence. She makes physical changes as well that all are supposed to make her into a better, more likeable person.

What annoyed me most was the fact that a "new friend" convinced the writer to stop wearing her eyeglasses unless she absolutely needed them, like for homework. Whaaaaatttt? I'm sorry, that's just irresponsible editing on the publishers part. Let the eye. dr. decide if glasses should be worn all day vs. just for homework, not a 12 year old who says "if you can see my hand you're fine" or something to that extent. What a HORRIBLE message to send to girls that eyeglasses=ugly & unpopular and that girls should avoid wearing them unless absolutely needed.

One other physical change the girl went through was to lose weight. She went from "short and stubby" to "long and slender". Okayyyyyy, I'm glad she got some better eating habits; even her dr. had told her mom she had a weight problem. But it grates on my nerves that the writer is implying to readers that being tall (now popular and surrounded by friends) is better than being short (when she didn't have any friends). Kids read this stuff and get the (even if it's subconcious) notion that being short is bad.

So good for the writer to have made new friends, to have grown out of her short, fat, pimply, dorky dressing, eyeglass wearing years. I just wish that it didn't make the girls still in those situations (especially ones who can't do anything about it) feel so bad about themselves.

Sad and good at the same time! Nov. 27 2006
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
This was a good book because most of the stories were from kids my age (11). Some stories were really funny! Espically the crushes! But there were a few really sad ones where I almost cried out loud. In school even! One was when a girl's mother dies and she actually sees her getting hit by a car! i thought about how i would feel if my mom died and i saw her getting hit. That one almost made me cry! Really, it did!

And another one was when a girl's best best friend dies! Of cancer! That one was really sad! I almost cried when i read that one too because of all the stuff that had happened to this girl before she met her friend. IT was sad because i thought of my friends and how sad I would be if my best friend, Hannah, died. It was said!

Trust me, you'll laugh and you'll cry, but this book was really REALLY GREAT!
