I like these types of journal entry stories.
Thomas Cooper
Written as a young girl's journal, it gives a believable tale of the trials and tribulations that can happen in high school.

I don't usually read or listen to young adult books but I was really pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this one.

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.

This is a fast paced well written story about a fourteen year old girl named Melissa, her family, and the beginning of her freshman year at Dearborn High School. The protagonist writes in a journal format spilling out her hopes, fears and emotions.

Even as an adult reader, I found myself laughing, crying and sympathizing with Melissa. The oldest child of four, Melissa describes her brothers and sisters: Megan, the seventh grader who has no pride in her appearance, Mikey, the nine year old pesky brother, and Monica, the still adorable five year old baby sister. Her parents take their responsibilities seriously and do their best to guide her.

In the beginning of the story, Melissa has just begun to make journal entries in the book Megan has bought for her birthday. Melissa is apprehensive about the first day of high school, especially because her mother is also a teacher at the school! Her life is a roller coaster. Melissa's best friend Jess has turned into a goth and won't even talk to her. Melissa is desperately trying to get Brian, a star athlete swimmer and football player, to pay attention to her. A new girl named Layla appears eager to befriend her. Melissa's entries are filled with the ups and downs of a teenager's life. There are boy troubles, family quarrels, parental disputes and problems at school.

Many of the lessons learned are not acquired without grief or hardship, but we are introduced to a young lady who is doing her best to find out who she is and how she can fit it without losing her own identity. Bethany Lopez does a good job of delineating the joys and fears as well as the trials and tribulations of a fourteen year old high school freshman. Story action moves along quickly and the sub plots involving supporting characters are seamlessly interwoven.

I think all teenage girls should read the series. Book 1 dealt with bullying , alcohol and boyfriends. Bethany Lopez wrote real as "Melissa" , you could really see and hear where Melissa was coming from and what she was dealing with.

It was engaging enough for me to read it. (I don't necessarily get into Young Adult) but after reading the news every day it was nice to read something fluffy. :)

I TOO found myself at that age fighting with my brother and my sister's. I also got into fights at school to. I was a tomb boy and I didn't want anyone hurting my feeling. In today school we have a lot of bulling kids and I look at my life and said I was one. So I try to teach my son not to be that way.

I chose this rating because this describes what teenage girls go through starting high school and it was funny and sad and really fun.
