Celebrating 15 years of Flippeda??a classic he-said-she-said romantic comedy!?? This updated anniversary edition offers story-behind-the-story revelations from author 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: a??My Bryce. Still walking around with my first kiss.a?? He says: a??Ita??s been six years of strategic avoidance and social discomfort.a?? But in the eighth grade everything gets turned upside down: just as Bryce is thinking that therea??s maybe more to Juli than meets the eye, shea??s thinking that hea??s not quite all he seemed.
This is a classic romantic comedy of errors told in alternating chapters by two fresh, funny voices.
The updated anniversary edition contains 32 pages of extra backmatter:?? essays from Wendelin Van Draanen on her sources of inspiration, on the making of the movie of Flipped, on why shea??ll never write a sequel, and a selection of the amazing fan mail shea??s received.
