I've always loved this book - as a teen and as an adult. The characters are so real I feel like if I went to Sydney, I'd find these three girls involved in some kind of ruckus. I read this one before Feeling Sorry for Celia and I found it does stand alone, although certain characters make a little more sense if you read them in order. Definitely recommended for teens.

Story is told by multiple narrators, in various methods: email, diaries, proper snail mail letters. Practical jokes and campus hijinks, friendship and romance, a mystery or two. Entertaining and fun.

Fun and quirky, like any Jaclyn Moriarty read! This book is even better if you've read Feeling Sorry for Celia - all the allusions to events/people in that novel will fill you in on some inside jokes.

Cute and classy. Solving rivalry with another school, a perfect way to click with one another or go at each other.

This book is very unique. The whole book consists of letters, emails and notes. It's funny, it's strange, it's sad, it's heartwarming and it's a very good read. I strongly recommend it! Jaclyn Moriarty is known for the way at the end of all her books everything makes sense and small trivial events that you didn't think much of turn out to be of great importance. I loved this book very much!

It was a great read but the author left you hanging lot, it is a pen pal relationship between the 2 schools and the book is just the letters they write to each other, even so it was a great read. I had trouble putting it down :)
