Tab, Bridge and Emily have been friends for years but as 7th graders things are different. With new friends, new boys and new after-school activities things are much more complicated than they were before.
The novel switches between the story of Bridge and her friends dealing feminism, sexting and boys and a unknown girl as she is trying to hide out, guiltily, on Feb. 14. As Valentine’s Day approaches you get the whole story, in a thoughtful and real way.
I wish Rebecca Stead was writing when I was a 7th grader. While I did have the wonderful Judy Blume, there is something about her stories. She gets it.
Bridge is an accident survivor who’s wondering why she’s still alive. Emily has new curves and an almost-boyfriend who wants a certain kind of picture. Tabitha sees through everybody’s games–or so she tells the world. The three girls are best friends with one rule: No fighting. Can it get them through seventh grade?
This year everything is different for Sherm Russo as he gets to know Bridge Barsamian. What does it mean to fall for a girl–as a friend?
On Valentine’s Day, an unnamed high school girl struggles with a betrayal. How long can she hide in plain sight?
