What a lovely book! It's one of those that you cannot help but absolutely fall in love with. It was just so much fun, and I highly recommend it for anyone who just wants a light, happy read that will leave you with a smile on your face :) I also really loved that it took place in Brookline/Boston.

I am enjoyed this book, which is told through journals, e mails and text messages of 3 middle school kids.

In someways it was a rather lame gimmick the whole journal, email, text thing, but he certainly wasn't the 1st author to do that.

This was one of my favorite reads EVER!!! The characters are funny and witty, and there wasn't one that I didn't like. Though it's not a very deep book, it's a fun read.

This book was so cute! I loved the characters, the writing was exellent and the storyline was very original and captivating! It includes so much classic broadway and movie quotes and facts, and much much more. A very good random read, especially if you are just looking for a fun book to fall right into!

This will forever be one of my favourite books. I've read it 5 times and have never gotten tired of it. The story is so one of a kind even though it is a rom-com. But it has little extra things that make it so special.

Kind of a fun read. Better than the average book fluff, but nothing particularly special. I had a good time with it, but it wasn't what I would call fine literature. More like Roseanne than The Wire, say.

Loved this book, if you liked it too I suggest e-mail the author, I have a few times and he seems pretty cool.

Like Julie Andrews and the movie Mary Poppins, this book may seem too sweet. On the other hand, non-grim fairy tales are a nice change once in a while.
