This is a great book. You would probably want to read the first book, "Phillip Hall Likes Me, I Reckon Maybe" before. It's a Newberry Honor book so if you don't want to buy it it's probably in your local library.
You are probably wondering ¿Who¿s Philip Hall?¿ He is the secret crush and enemy of Beth Lambert. Beth is a young black girl who loves being a leader, and winning awards. In the beginning of the book, Beth thinks she will win the Abner Brady award, but boy is she wrong. After that night, she felt so embarrassed that she wanted to run away and never come back. Then, she got so caught up in trying to beat Philip Hall at anything that she loses her friends. How will she regain her friends? Well all I have to say is read the book to find out. I think it is a really good book. Get on out of here, Philip Hall comes in a series (a very small series of two). The other book is Philip Hall likes me. I Reckon so. Overall I think the book is an ok book to read. The only thing on it that wasn¿t so great was the English. They used words such as ain¿t, reckon, yes¿m, etc. I would give it three stars ***.
