    leave Friction on the shelf!!

    Know one likes the mean girls at school, yet there always seems to be one. You know the type, stuck up girls that think their better then everyone else. In Friction, by E.R. Frank, Stacy is the new mean girl at school. She spreads horrible lies that shakes the hole class up. Then Alex ,the victim of the lies, decides she has had enough. The story takes place in a not so normal middle school. The 8th graders still go to recess and the characters seem extremely elementary. The main characters Alex and her best friend Tim have the personalities of kids a lot younger then themselves. The author did a horrible job portraying the characters personalities. They were doing and saying things unusual for their age group, and I found it extremely odd and hard to read. Even though the characters were portrayed badly the idea of a student teacher love affair is what kept me wanting to read on. Friction is a moving and powerful story about forgiveness and it teaches an amazing lesson.I would recommend this book to middle school aged kids that enjoy drama filled books.Its defiantly not a most read book, but i can see a younger age group really enjoying this book.

    I was pretty disappointed by this book

    The language that the author uses (in characterization or not)got annoying after about the 15th page. The plot wasnt all that great.
