From the Inside Flap
The first time she saw him, she flipped. The first time he saw her, he ran. That was the second grade, but not much has changed by the seventh. She says: "My Bryce. Still walking around with my first kiss." He says: "It's been six years of strategic avoidance and social discomfort." But in the eighth grade everything gets turned upside down. And just as he's thinking there's more to her than meets the eye, she's thinking that he's not quite all he seemed.
This is a classic romantic comedy of errors told in alternating chapters by two fresh, funny new voices. Wendelin Van Draanen is at her best here with a knockout cast of quirky characters and a hilarious series of misunderstandings and missed opportunities. But underlying the humor are two teens in transition. They are each learning to look beyond the surface of people, both figuring out who they are, who they want to be, and who they want to be with.

Over all I really enjoyed this short story. You could probably finish this in one sitting so it is the perfect length for most young adults (9-14). This book is written very well and the emotions the characters feel throughout the book are believable and the events could happen in real life.
Hilarious and fascinating read, they only downside is that there is no sequel to this story which leaves the reader wondering what's going to happen next.
