review 1: i like how it showed her changing constantly throughout the book. i didn't like the ending because she could have elaborated more.this book talks about how a girl goes through middle school, and how a lot of things change in middle school. she and her best "boy" friend start to get in arguments because joylin develops a crush on another boy named santiago. towards the end, she realizes that she could have got him if she was being herself. in the end her best "boy" friend get hit by a car and is in the hospital. they apologize to each other and everything goers back to normal.

I really like Joy's mom and some of her friends too. They seem like friends I would have as well. She has a really good relationship with her mom which is really important at any age, but maybe especially during middle school. I think you will enjoy and relate to this book if you read it. less
