Synopsis: Juli Baker devoutly believes in three things: the sanctity of trees (especially her beloved sycamore), the wholesomeness of the eggs she collects from her backyard flock of chickens, and that someday she will kiss Bryce Loski. Ever since she saw Bryce's dazzling brown eyes back in second grade, Juli has been smitten. Unfortunately, Bryce has never felt the same. Frankly, he thinks Juli Baker is a little weird--after all, what kind of freak raises chickens and sits in trees for fun? Then, in eighth grade, everything changes. Bryce begins to see that Juli's unusual interests and pride in her family are, well, kind of cool. And Juli starts to think that maybe Bryce's dazzling brown eyes are as empty as the rest of Bryce seems to be. After all, what kind of jerk doesn't care about other people's feelings about chickens and trees? With Flipped, mystery author Wendelin Van Draanen has taken a break from her Sammy Keyes series, and the result is flipping fantastic. Bryce and Juli's rants and

What was that all about?

My only consolation

was that next year would be different.

Junior high, bigger school.

Maybe we'd be in different classes

and it would finally, finally be over.


The first day I met Bryce Loski, I flipped.

It was those eyes,

something in those dazzling eyes.

You wanna push this one together?

His family had just moved

into the neighborhood...

...and I'd gone over to help them.

I'd been in the van all of two minutes

when his dad sent him off to help his mom.

I could see he didn't wanna go.

So I chased after him to see if we could

play a little before he got trapped inside.

The next thing I know,

he's holding my hand...

...and looking right into my eyes.

My heart stopped.

Was this it?

Would this be my first kiss?

- But then his mother came out.

- Well, hello.

And he was so embarrassed,

his cheeks turned completely red.

I went to bed that night thinking

of the kiss that might have been.

I mean, it was clear he had feelings for me,

but he was just too shy to show them.

My mother said boys were like that.

- So I decided to help him out.

- Bryce? You're here.


I would give him plenty

of opportunity to get over his shyness.

By the sixth grade,

I'd learned to control myself.

Then Sherry Stalls entered the picture.

Sherry Stalls was nothing but a whiny,

gossipy, backstabbing flirt.

All hair and no substance.

And there she was...

...holding hands with Bryce. My Bryce.

The one who was walking around

with my first kiss.

My solution was to ignore her.

I knew a boy of Bryce's caliber...

...would eventually see through

a shallow conniver like Sherry Stalls.

It took all of a week.

They broke up at recess.

She didn't take it well.

Now that Bryce was out of Sherry's
