Rated 3 out of 5 by from A good read An interesting, if not predictable story line in the latest installment to this series, but should still be an okay read for middle school girls to relate to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from CRAZY LOVE This book was hilarious, but I would say slightly predictable as well. I did thoroughly enjoy the awkwardly cute scenes as well as the brooding jealousy that was evident in the book. I would definitely recommend this to children as well as teenagers. It is great for those who aren't much of a reader because of how quick of a read it is and the many great visual drawings within the book that give the story more life.

My heart is pounding, my palms are sweaty, and the butterflies fluttering around inside my stomach are making me feel a little queasy. Unfortunately, there is no known CURE. . . . MY CRUSH-ITIS DIAGNOSISHow I got this acute case of crush-itis is kind of a long and complicated story. I was just about to eat breakfast and head off to school. . . .
