Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen

Bryce thinks that Juli has been a pest since the first moment they met. Juli thinks that she's been looking out for Bryce for his own good. Bryce knows that Juli has a crush on him and hates how she's always paying attention to him. Juli knows that she flipped for Bryce but she's hidden it from him pretty well. They've been friends - or at least neighbours - for six years, but Bryce and Juli are about to learn that maybe they don't know each other as well as they think they do.

There's something really interesting about dual-narrator novels. I love getting different perspectives on the same situation, maybe because in real life we only ever have our single perspective on things. I wish there was a sequel, maybe when Juli and Bryce were 18ish and graduating from high school. (It's times like this that I totally understand why people write fan fiction) Even so, the book ends at such a good point that I'm happy to leave Bryce and Juli there at that moment.

Find it on IndieBound.
