Criss Cross

by Lynne Rae Perkins

HarperCollins Publishers Ltd. | December 26, 2007 | Trade Paperback

Criss Cross is rated 3 out of 5 by 1.

She wished something would happen.

Something good. To her. Checking her wish for loopholes, she found one. Hoping it wasn't too late, she thought the word soon.

Meanwhile, in another part of town, he felt as if the world was opening. Life was rearranging itself; bulging in places, fraying in spots. He felt himself changing, too, but into what?

So much can happen in a summer.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wasn't really what I thought it was going to be. This won the Newberry medal so I have to say I had pretty high expectations. It didn't quite meet them but I did like. It just follows the lives of a handful of teenagers - focusing on Debbie and a couple of neighbours she has known since she was a baby and some of their friends. About seeing someone you might like in a new way and how feelings can just bounce off someone if they aren't ready for you. About ships crossing in the night and first loves and not being loved back. It is a quiet little book.
