Arrived safely in New Zealand today, despite bearing a scary-looking sticker saying "Delayed for compliance with Aviation Security Regulations".

Many thanks, kzel!

8 out of 10

A sweet story about friendship, told through a series of notes and letters. The author manages to avoid a common problem of the epistolatory novel, that of describing the most personal feelings of the characters (things that they wouldn't even reveal to their most intimate friends, so can't appear in a letter), by using the clever device of imaginary letters the main character writes to herself from organisations such as "The Association of Teenagers" and "The Young Romance Club".

At first, I thought this book was just going to be a rehash of Finding Cassie Crazy, which I read last year (or rather, vice versa, that Finding Cassie Crazy had been a rehash of this one), because they both start off with exactly the same plot device of a letter exchange programme between schools, but after that initial similarity they do diverge pretty quickly. I still probably wouldn't want to read the two books in quick succession, though.

Got this at a Christchurch Meetup on Sunday morning.
Started reading it on the ride home today.
An interesting way to write a book.

I finished reading it this afternoon while waiting for the bus.
Great to read of some teenagers writing letters to each other.
Almost makes me want to write to someone!! :o)

Thanks to rarsberry and boreal for this one - which arrived (to my surprise) in the post this morning. I started it this afternoon at the gym and it made the 30 minutes on the bike pass so much faster. And when I got home, I just couldn't put it down until I finished it.

This is the type of young adult fiction I just love: funny and awkward and relateable. And I'm such a fan of letters, so it appealed to me from the start. I'll be looking out for Jaclyn Moriarty's other novels.

I swiped this book at the meet up last night. Have heard that it is good so will find out when I read it I guess.

I really enjoyed this one. I thought that the plot was well thought out, and that it was a cool writing style. Now I want to go away and write letters as well. It would be so exciting to get mail from someone!! I will probably send this book on as I have found three other people who have this book on their wish list.
