While this book is pretty predictable I still liked it.
Two boys fighting over one girl.
The two boys are best friends until they both discover they both like Cybil.

This would be a popular book in a 4th or 5th grade classroom because this is the time students start being interested in having boyfriends and girlfriends. ( )

Cybil is just an ordinary girl in the fifth grade who likes to stick out her tongue and cross her eyes at people. Simon and Tony are also fifth-graders who have been best friends after finding out they both lost their father, although in different ways. Simon has has a huge crush on Cybil forever and becomes suspicious of Tony's feelings for her after catching him in several lies. This is a wonderful story of growing up and learning how to deal with first crushes and friends that you discover aren't actually friends at all.
I didn't know what to expect from this book, but I really enjoyed it. It was a very easy read and gave wonderful examples of how to deal with those middle school issues perfectly. I think this would be a good book to have in a classroom library. I would like to use this book in reading groups. I think it would be good to use to look at the different social situations kids of that age go through. ( )
