    Great read.

    I read this book senior year of high school. I was a perfectionist who always worried what others thought. This book helped me learn mistskes are inevitable and needed in order to learn and grow. This book changed my perspective of life. Ten years later I continue to be happier and take myself less seriously. It is okay to fumble.

    amazing novel

    Number 6 Fumbles was a book that really touched me. I couldn't put the book down. The book is basically about Rebecca who is a sophmore at Penn and goes through a change and finds out who she really is when number six fumbles the ball at the penn/cornell football game. you see her go through so many experiences, drinking, bar hopping, random hook ups, losing her virginity, her friendships with her girlfriends. it's such a moving piece. i definately could relate to it being in college and saw this book at my life in a nutshell ha. i def. recommend it for anyone especially college students.

    Great book!

    I picked this book up because the cover looked neat. After I started the first chapter I wasn't able to put it down until I finished it. The main character is really easy to relate to, which is what I think makes the book so great.

    Sex and the City at Penn

    This is one of those books you stay up all night reading. Solar-Tuttle crystallizes the college experience -- the hook-ups, the drinking, the late nights, the way fun takes on a frantic urgency -- and adds the layer of understanding we were missing when we went through it. It's a gripping trip back to a world where you didn't ask questions, only this time Solar-Tuttle asks them, through lovable protagonist Beck, whose struggle for answers makes riveting reading.

    Don't Miss This Compelling Debut

    Ah, college. Dorm life. The freedom of Friday nights. The smug satisfaction of acing a paper. It¿s so tempting to look back sentimentally, forgetting the heartache and identity struggles that also marked those four fleeting years. With Number 6 Fumbles, Solar-Tuttle spares neither: While providing a thoroughly-enjoyable, voyeuristic ¿return trip,¿ she also reminds you why you¿re so glad you¿ve moved on ¿ and why you could never go back. Our vicarious peek is provided via ¿Beck¿ Lowe who, despite her flaws and foibles, remains a sympathetic ¿ but never cringe-worthy ¿ character. In Beck, Solar-Tuttle avoids the need to resolve the ¿good girl-bad girl¿ conflict which traps so many authors. Instead, she leaves us with a very human character: conflicted, multidimensional, real. It¿s easy to find some of our own college selves in Beck, but rather than view her follies with criticism as we may retrospectively see ourselves, we¿re free to cheer her on from the sidelines. In fact, Beck ¿ this book ¿ leaves us with the possibility of looking back on our own awkward times with more compassion and forgiveness than before.

    Number 6 Fumbles- A Vivid Look Back

    Solar-Tuttle has managed to conjure up the voice and inner life of a nineteen year old woman with ruthless honesty and clarity. Number 6 Fumbles documents Rebecca Lowe's collegiate turmoils, disappointments and escapades and this novel can't help but force the reader to take a somewhat painful look back at his/her own life at this age. The voice of this character so accurately captures the mood and essence of this time in my own life, that I desperately wanted to hug Rebecca and soothe her with the wisdom I now have in my thirties. I truly enjoyed this book. Bravo to Rachel Solar-Tuttle for such a remarkable journey to the past! Don't worry Rebecca - we all felt this panic and angst at your age. You are wonderful and everything definitely gets better with age!
