My Review:

I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! It wasn’t very exciting until the middle, but after that it was so good!! This book is composed of letters sent between two teen-aged girls. I like this style of writing so much that I have tried to write my own book in this style (needless to say, I haven’t gotten very far). There were a couple subtle hints of romance, but it wasn’t a main part of the story. I’m thinking that this is my favorite book in this series (that I’ve read), but I haven’t read the others in a while. 🙂

    Hey, you don’t know me but I found you blog and I was wondering why it had ads for the Book of Mormon on it when you said that you were a Baptist. ?? It might be possible that it is my computer that is doing that, but I really have no idea.

      Oh, I didn’t know it was showing that. Thanks for letting me know! I do not endorse the book of Mormon at all; the Church of the Latter-day Saints is a cult. If you make a free blog on WordPress, they put ads on it that they think relate to your blog. :/ I’m too cheap to upgrade, so I have to deal with that. 😦 Anyways, thanks for letting me know!
