Publisher's Summary

This brilliant novel by Newbery Medal winner Rebecca Stead explores multiple perspectives on the bonds and limits of friendship.

Bridge is an accident survivor who's wondering why she's still alive. Emily has new curves and an almost-boyfriend who wants a certain kind of picture. Tabitha sees through everybody's games - or so she tells the world. The three girls are best friends with one rule: no fighting. Can it get them through seventh grade?

This year everything is different for Sherm Russo as he gets to know Bridge Barsamian. What does it mean to fall for a girl - as a friend?

On Valentine's Day an unnamed high school girl struggles with a betrayal. How long can she hide in plain sight?

Each memorable character navigates the challenges of love and change in this captivating novel.

    "Awesome!"

    It helped understand the book more than usual. The voices helped me pay more attention instead of my mind going else where.

    "Boring"

    This story was unremarkable. The secondary story line and strange points of view were unnecessary and annoying. I wouldn't recommend this one at all.
