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 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.

BOY MEETS GIRL

This was the perfect book to take you out of the crap on the news. Bravo to Julie, a girl who still knows how to stand for something

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 must - read book for teenager!

I had watched the film based on this novel then looked for the original novel right away. I read it within only 2 days and was really into it.

Hilarious and Hopeful!

Loved the reading of the book.
Loved the story...the way the author tells the story from 2 perspectives
Loved the themes-especially great for middle schoolers. (being unique is actually pretty awesome, when we are quick to judge others we could miss out on good stuff, parents have their struggles too...and many more important themes students deal with at that age)
Read it, you won't be dissappointed!
