Told from the perspective of reading a teenager's diary, this book tells the story of a young girl wanting a boy and captures the first person perspective of how she goes about that. Raw, witty and emotional, the book's narrative is believing and engaging. It felt written equally accessible to today's teen audiences and adults who want a quick and enjoyable read too. The only thing that felt rushed involved a subplot with the sister that while it moved to a natural point by the end, didn't feel like it had closure. Yet, that said, are diaries ever neatly wrapped up with closure? Truthfully, I wanted to know more about how the main character would continue to help the sister and that may be the reason it felt incomplete to me. Overall it didn't detract from the enjoyment.

this is a perfect book for those getting ready to start high school.
It shows what the new kids are going through.
Well written, love the diary format to help get into the head of
the main character. Recommend to all those getting ready to start
high school, and need some reminders they are not the only ones.

What a delight, this book was! I signed up to review the third book in this series, Ciao, so I was given the first two to catch up. I really wasn't sure what to expect. But, it wasn't this!

Ta Ta for Now! is a story told, by fourteen-year-old Missy, through a series of her journal entries. Like any "normal" girl's journal, it's not a record of EVERY SINGLE DAY...Just the ones that spark some sort of occurance. And this particular journal and its entries revolve around Missy's start to her high school career and all that that entails.

I think the most endearing thing about this book is that I really did feel like I could be reading a real girl's journal! Ms. Lopez did an AMAZING job at portraying a teeneged-girl pretty accurately, in my opinion. From friend drama, to boy drama, to sibling drama, to issues with parents, I found myself absolutely LOST in Missy's life.

I honestly can't wait to pick up the second installment, XOXOXO because, while we didn't have a "cliffhanger", per se, there are definitely some issues that are going to have to be addressed in the next "journal".

Moreover, I don't think that I'd enjoy this book HALF as much if, Missy-herself, wasn't a delighful, endearing character. I find myself torn between wanting to give her a good tongue-lashing and giving her a big hug. See? Totally appropriate for a book about teen angst.

I'm loving this series so far! Great job, Ms. Lopez!

This book is a very accurate portrayal of what life is like for the average fourteen year old girl starting high school- such a transitional year, with changing friends, boyfriends, alternately hating your family and realizing they are the best thing that could happen to you. And the main character, Melissa, has a rough freshman year, having to go through it all. Bullies, friends who aren't really your friends, peer pressure- she is indoctrinated pretty quickly to the world of high school. She manages to keep it together with the help of good friends and her family, who support her and love her, although she did find herself hitting some low points in between, such as fighting in school and with her sister. Her feelings about certain things were dead on to how a younger teenage girl would feel.

All in all, I think this is a great first book! I think this book is definitely one kids are going to pick up, read and enjoy, and I can't wait for it to be on the shelves of our library this year!!

Man, I forget what being fourteen felt like but this story brought it all back.

This was a cute, bittersweet tale about Melissa, Missy. Fourteen years old, just starting school again with the main goal of catching heart-throb Brian's eye. This story is narrated by Missy through a journal she writes in, given to her by her twelve-year old sister Megan, who told her "maybe if you write down your thoughts, you won't talk so much." Melissa is the oldest in a family of four children(she longs to be an only child!). So we hear the tales, dramas, heartbreaks of a typical fourteen-year old, everything felt so deeply and all at once.

Bethany Lopez did a fabulous job portraying this age, you really felt like you were fourteen again, right along with Missy, going through it with her. This story was funny, heartbreaking, and heartwarming. Missy's family was so adorable and lovable, along with her friend Jess.

A sweet and lovely story!

Format: Paperback
This young adult novel follows the main character through her freshman year in high school. It contains all of the essential elements that make a young adult novel, and it is engaging until the end. The main character is a part of a large family and often wishes she was an only child, but without her family, she would have had a much more difficult time getting through her freshman year. Characteristic of a teen's first year in high school, the main character deals with losing friendships and gaining others. She experiences love, disappointment, shame, heartache, and many more emotions as she begins to learn a little about herself.
