Summary (from the inside flap of the book): When Claudia accidentally eavesdrops on the epic breakup of Paige and Iris, the it-couple at her school, she finds herself in hot water with prickly, difficult Iris. Thrown together against their will into a class production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, along with the goofiest, cutest boy Claudia has ever known, Iris and Claudia are in for an eye-opening senior year.

Smart, funny, and thoroughly, wonderfully flawed, Claudia navigates a world of intense friendships and tentative romance in this book about expanding horizons, allowing yourself to be vulnerable, and accepting--and loving--people for who they really are.
Review: I really needed a lighter book to read as the past few I've read have been dark and intense. And the cover, the colors made me want to read this book! This one was a good choice.

I am in the middle of the Dewey 24-Hour Readathon so this will be a quick review. What a good choice of a book. It's light, it's got humor, love, friendship, school theater, and online fantasy gaming (which I am SO not into ). And it's fun. The characters are all nice, except when they aren't, and they make friends, their families are friendly and supportive. Ahhhhh.

I also like that they don't all get things right. They lie, they screw up, but they are honest with one another, they apologize when they should, and they admit when they make a mistake. I wish life was always that way.

Challenges for which this counts:
