    this book is made of awesome

    This book was great. The things that really made me like this novel as much as I did was Bindy herself. I mean, come on. Have you ever seen anyone like Bindy in a book before? ... Okay, maybe you have, but that's not the point, you know what I mean. Plus, i liked, just, the plot and everything, and how ms. moriarty can blend it all together. so anyways, this book is made of awesome.

    Reviewed by The Compulsive Reader for TeensReadToo.com

    Bindy Mackenzie--student extraordinaire and perfectionist--is the heroine in this follow-up novel to Moriarty's FEELING SORRY FOR CELIA and THE YEAR OF SECRET ASSIGNMENTS. <BR/><BR/>Bindy is thrown when she is placed in FAD--Friendship and Development class. It doesn't make any sense! Who would rip away her study period so thoughtlessly? And what could she possibly learn from the other students in her class? <BR/><BR/>But could Bindy actually be so perfect that someone wants to kill her? And if so, the only people who can figure out who the perp is in time are the classmates that Bindy underestimated and alienated. <BR/><BR/>Laugh-out-loud funny, Moriarty doesn't disappoint. Full of her trademark intricate plot twists, quick wit, and told entirely in transcripts, journal entries, and letters, this novel gives a perfectly honest portrayal of teen life that is appropriate for even younger readers. Bindy Mackenzie will keep you guessing.

    This book is Wonderful for Teens!

    When I read this book in 2007 I couldn't keep my eyes off of it. I read it until my sister screamed and told me to turn off the light and if I got up early I would read until breakfast. This book had suspense,danger,love,trust, and downright wonderful moments. I love the little times when the kids wrote anonymous notes to eachother. I knew who was trying to murder Bindy several chapters before the end. I loved it! The end suprised me even though! LOVED IT!I recommend it deeply.

    Murder shouldn't be this fun. . .

    Bindy Mackenzie does NOT understand how she was placed into the FAD (Friendship and Development) class that she was. When Ashbury High School in Sydney, Australia goes to a new curriculum designed to help students with their interpersonal lives, Bindy protests¿and loudly. It just isn¿t academic, and she loathes her other seven classmates. Source documents from the life of Bindy Mackenzie paint the picture of a student who is annoyingly perfect and particularly judgmental of her cohorts. This is ultimately a mystery, but provides a self-portrait of personal growth and awareness that is actually fun to read. One of the greatest lessons of the book is that there can be more than one way to interpret the behavior of the people who surround us. This would be a great book for discussing interpersonal relations as well as psychological concepts.

    Page Turner.

    This book is amazing. Really, I couldn't stop reading. The only girl from the pervious books who is [really, really] in it is Emily, but it's still really good. Worth reading, I think.
