Despite the fact that I've read four books a week since I was old enough to read, this book is one I'll remember as being one of the best. I can't believe there is anyone who didn't enjoy this book! It is so laugh-out-loud hilarious, and utterly unpredictable. There are so many plot twists that I kept saying, 'Woah, I never saw that coming!' Elizabeth is so lovable, and any girl could relate to her. This book should be a must-read for girls everywhere. If you have yet to read it, DO!!

Feeling Sorry for celia was dissapointing.I really hated how those associations and clubs wrote her those letters constantly saying mean things . I mean she should of taken herself off the mailing list of all those associations long before she did . It was not funny . It was sad when the guy Elizebeth liked ,liked Celia .THe book should have been named feeling sorry for ELizabeth because Elizabeth got mean letters ,had little friends ,her dog died who she loved very much ,and the guy she liked hooked up with her best friend,and she communicated with her mother mostly through letters.

    Check it out!

    Reading Feeling Sorry for Celia was a great success! The book was written in letter formation which, when reading it I really enjoyed. I think this book is more written toward teenagers. I say this because it mostly focuses on teenage problems. From high school problems, to friend, and boy drama, this book covers it all. Feeling Sorry for Celia is a really entertaining book to read. It really had its funny parts, but also went to serious parts too. A teenager reading this book can really relate to it, because of the fact that most teenagers go through the same problems the main character in the book Elizabeth goes through. With Elizabeths best friend Celia missing and running away o the circus, Elizabeth has to go through high school life all by herself. Even being with Celia Elizabeth was still struggling trying to fit into high school, and be like others. Her best friend was gone for a while and didn't mention anything to Elizabeth for a while, when usually she mentions to her right away where she is when she runs away from home. When days go by finally Elizabeth finds out where Celia is and finds out its in a circus where she is planning to also stay and, perform at. In the letter that Celia sent to Elizabeth explaining where she was she also told her to come by the circus and see her perform. Days go by and Elizabeth is still on her own. In her English class, her teacher assigned a pen pal that she has to write with the whole semester. Her pen pals name is Christina, with Celia being gone and, her finding out the kind of person Christina is which is outgoing girl, she helps celia get through the year with the letter writing. I really recommend this book. It was a really fun and exciting reading. Give it three out of five stars! So, go on and check it out!

    An 'uggh' Book

    I really didn't like this book. It seemed to 'uggh' and I forced myself to read it. Most of the book was boring, but the adventurous parts happened very quickly. Then it went back to boring.

    I think the book was really corney it made no sense to me. The book was in letter form and it went from one thig to another it made no sense. I don't get how you can write a story with making letters.

    dissappointing

    The first book i ever read from jaclyn moriarty was the year of secret assignments in 6th grade. I loved that book. But when i got finished reading this one, I was like 'This book is kinda boring and it kinda sucks.' The year of secret assignments was SO much better than this one. And now that I think about it,feeling sorry for celia was stupid and the only funny thing in it was when the association of teenagers told Elizabeth to crawl in the fridge and when christina was telling Elizabeth that when Derek and her were having sex that the condom broke. If you're looking for a really funny read, try the boyfriend list by E. Lockheart. it will have you in stitches, and this book will definitely not.
