Publisher's Summary

This special audiobook of the classic he said/she said romantic comedy includes essays written and read by Wendelin Van Draanen.

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. Juli 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: Just as Bryce is thinking that there's maybe more to Juli than meets the eye, she's thinking that he's not quite all he seemed.

Bonus content includes Wendelin Van Draanen on her sources of inspiration, the making of the movie of Flipped, and why she'll never write a sequel. Narrators Ryan Gesell and Tara Sands read a selection of the amazing fan mail Wendelin has received.

Critic Reviews

"Van Draanen has another winner in this eighth-grade 'he-said, she-said' romance." ( School Library Journal)
"We flipped over this fantastic book." ( The Chicago Tribune)
"With a charismatic leading lady kids will flip over, a compelling dynamic between the two narrators and a resonant ending, this novel is a great deal larger than the sum of its parts." ( Publishers Weekly)

A book from my childhood

I read this book when I was 10 years old. I loved it. I've been looking for it ever since. Now, at 30 years old, I've finally found it and it brought back so many feelings and emotions that I felt when I first read the book. And I am also truly saddened that there is not a part 2. I figured that if I ever found it again, that there would be a part 2 by now. Now, having just finished reading it after 20 years, is leaving me feeling sad and lost again. I just want to know what happens next?

Solid Moral

An interesting listen due to the fact that it is the same story told from two different perspectives. The moral of the story is something that children should learn at an early age. Its ending is somehow fulfilling and unfulfilling at the same time.

A fantastic story of human character

The book itself is an excellent story that brilliantly explores the depths of character-building, but the audiobook makes it even better. The voice actors captured the spirit of the two main characters beautifully.

you guessed it the book is better than the movie

This is a great tale of growing up in a simpler time but learning all the really important lessons. You just want to keep following their journey.
