    Totally Joe by James Howe (amysisson)
    amysisson: "Flipped" tells the same events from two different perspectives, with earnest and real teen POV. "Totally Joe" has only one perspective but with a creative format -- and with the other books in this series, you do get that multiple POV. Both highly recommended.… (more)

I actually watched the movie first before reading the book. I had seen the trailer for Flipped while watching another movie and wanted to watch it, so I checked it out from the library and just fell in love with Juli, thinking to myself that if one day I am fortunate enough to have a daughter I would like her to be thoughtful like Juli Baker! So once I realized the movie was adapted from a book, I knew I had to read it.

And read it I did! I was beautiful and just as great as the movie. It's definitely on my "MUST READ" list for all young kids, I think this is a great book to share with children and teach them about "the whole being greater than the sum of its parts." ( )

This book is great for students who are just beginning to read chapter books. The storyline is very relatable because it tells about two children coming of age and falling in love just as they are beginning to like girls/boys for the first time. ( )

When Juli Baker first saw Bryce Loski, she flipped. Bryce, on the other hand, ran. They came from completely different families: one is warm and open, while the other is strictly conventional.
Juli had a horribly cute obsession with Bryce for quite a long time. Eventually, she looked beyond the eyes, the smile and the hair of Bryce. When Juli realized that Bryce was not so wonderful like she thought, Bryce became aware of how amazing Juli is. He flipped.

I like this book because there is always two sides in every story, and here you will know why the characters are like that and where are they coming from. Aside from love, this book teaches the readers to do the right thing when faced with a choice because it will affect lives. This book also states that the whole being is greater than the sum of its parts. A cow is a cow, a meadow is a grass & flowers, and a sun is just peeking through, but when you put them together, it will be magic. ( )

It shows that things change and people do too. ( )

I really enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend it to everyone to give it a shot. My professor mentioned that she had a former student who did not like reading so she introduced this book to him and he read it, and even after he read it he was hoping that there was another book like it. I also wish there is another book like this one, it was very detailed and interesting. I will for sure purchase this book in the near future for students that may struggle in reading, and also for myself. ( )

Book description
My mom didn't understand why it was so awful that 'that cute little girl' had held my hand. She thought I should be friends with her. "You like soccer. Why don't you go out there and kick the ball around?" Because I didn't want to be kicked around, that's why. And although I couldn't say it like that at the time, I still had enough sense at age seven and a half to know that Julianna Baker was dangerous.

What did a kiss feel like anyway? Somehow I knew it wouldn't be like the one I got from Mom or Dad at bedtime. The same species, maybe, but a radically different beast. Like a wolf and a whippet. Only science would put them on the same tree. Looking back, I like to think it was at least partly scientific curiosity that made me chase after that kiss, but it was probably more those blue eyes.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0375825444, Paperback)

Juli Baker devoutly believes in three things: the sanctity of trees (especially her beloved sycamore), the wholesomeness of the eggs she collects from her backyard flock of chickens, and that someday she will kiss Bryce Loski. Ever since she saw Bryce's baby blues back in second grade, Juli has been smitten. Unfortunately, Bryce has never felt the same. Frankly, he thinks Juli Baker is a little weird--after all, what kind of freak raises chickens and sits in trees for fun? Then, in eighth grade, everything changes. Bryce begins to see that Juli's unusual interests and pride in her family are, well, kind of cool. And Juli starts to think that maybe Bryce's brilliant blue eyes are as empty as the rest of Bryce seems to be. After all, what kind of jerk doesn't care about other people's feelings about chickens and trees? With Flipped, mystery author Wendelin Van Draanen has taken a break from her Sammy Keyes series, and the result is flipping fantastic. Bryce and Juli's rants and raves about each other ring so true that teen readers will quickly identify with at least one of these hilarious feuding egos, if not both. A perfect introduction to the adolescent war between the sexes. (Ages 12 to 14) --Jennifer Hubert
