I love this book!!! I am about the age of the characters (slightly older), and I think it's really true-to-life and relatable. Anna is very believable and has a very real personality. I can completely relate to her, because I too often space out into a book and don't notice when people talk to me (and "read-walk" as Anna calls it---despite many admonitions from teachers :P). Laura moving on to the popular girls is very realistic as well (at my school, we don't have a "popular clique" per se, but we do have girls who are prettier and more confident than other girls, and recently one of my friends joined them (not completely, but still).). And sadly, Laura's home situation is realistic as well. All in all, I think this book is very true-to-life and an excellent book for girls in grades 3-6.

This book is on a special list for 3rd - 5th grade students for the 2013-2014 school year in Florida. While it is a simple read, this is not a model book for students due to many grammatical errors and sentence structure. Why were these things not caught by an editor before being published? Hopefully this occurs only in the digital version and not the printed copies.

    Great book but a lot of typos

    It was a great book but there were so many typos so if younger kids read this book I hope that they understand what the author was talking about. It may have typos but it was still a great book. If you don't know if you should buy it you should even though there are a lot of typos. ENJOY!!!! :)
