Weekend Reads

Title: Flipped

Flipped is a romance told in two voices. The first time Juli Baker saw Bryce Loski, she flipped. The first time Bryce saw Juli, he ran. That’s pretty much the pattern for these two neighbors until the eighth grade, when, just as Juli is realizing Bryce isn’t as wonderful as she thought, Bryce is starting to see that Juli is pretty amazing. How these two teens manage to see beyond the surface of things and come together makes for a comic and poignant romance. 


It's been a while since we've done a Weekend Reads post, but this is a very special weekend.  Mckenzie Kate -- known as Katertot around the blog -- is celebrating her 14th birthday today!  We have lots of fun plans, but we're making time to enjoy a mother/daughter read once the festivities slow down.  She chose Flipped after hearing such great things about it from the awesome ladies at The DMS Files
The many hats of Katertot:

4 years (Gangsta baby)
4 months
14 years - Happy Birthday, Katertot! 
Love you oodles and gobs!


Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!  
We'll see you Monday!
