Goodreads:  April’s New Year’s resolution: to get back together with sweet, funny Billy. But what’s going on between Billy and their friend Brynn? And why does April want to keep her friendship with Matt, her hot neighbor, a secret?

Ope’s Opinion: This is the third book in this series.  I have not read book one or two.  Book three read just fine without having read one or two.  I do think I was missing some back ground of April’s relationship with Brynn, but it was still a good read.

April, Brynn and Billy are average middle school students.  They miscommunicated and got their feelings hurt – it felt realistic.  I like the way the adults treat the students.  The adults are obviously in charge and have a relationship with the kids.

I think a parent would be comfortable having their middle grade child reading this book.

I would read another book from Laurie Friedman.

Rating: Four Chairs: I like this book so much I know several friends to share it with.
