Feeling Sorry for celia was dissapointing.I really hated how those associations and clubs wrote her those letters constantly saying mean things . I mean she should of taken herself off the mailing list of all those associations long before she did . It was not funny . It was sad when the guy Elizebeth liked ,liked Celia .THe book should have been named feeling sorry for ELizabeth because Elizabeth got mean letters ,had little friends ,her dog died who she loved very much ,and the guy she liked hooked up with her best friend,and she communicated with her mother mostly through letters.

Despite the fact that I've read four books a week since I was old enough to read, this book is one I'll remember as being one of the best. I can't believe there is anyone who didn't enjoy this book! It is so laugh-out-loud hilarious, and utterly unpredictable. There are so many plot twists that I kept saying, 'Woah, I never saw that coming!' Elizabeth is so lovable, and any girl could relate to her. This book should be a must-read for girls everywhere. If you have yet to read it, DO!!

Feeling Sorry for Celia was very well written. Moriarty accurately portrayed the teen angst to a t. The letter format of the novel was a very interesting choice and I think it turned out very well. I wouldn't quite call it 'laugh out loud,' but it was funny nonetheless. On a side note, I find it very interesting that the reviewers giving the novel low marks have terribly written reviews. If one is going to bash a book, it's a good idea to come off seeming at least semi- intelligent or the review just seems hypocritical.

Reading Feeling Sorry for Celia was a great success! The book was written in letter formation which, when reading it I really enjoyed. I think this book is more written toward teenagers. I say this because it mostly focuses on teenage problems. From high school problems, to friend, and boy drama, this book covers it all. Feeling Sorry for Celia is a really entertaining book to read. It really had its funny parts, but also went to serious parts too. A teenager reading this book can really relate to it, because of the fact that most teenagers go through the same problems the main character in the book Elizabeth goes through. With Elizabeths best friend Celia missing and running away o the circus, Elizabeth has to go through high school life all by herself. Even being with Celia Elizabeth was still struggling trying to fit into high school, and be like others. Her best friend was gone for a while and didn't mention anything to Elizabeth for a while, when usually she mentions to her right away where she is when she runs away from home. When days go by finally Elizabeth finds out where Celia is and finds out its in a circus where she is planning to also stay and, perform at. In the letter that Celia sent to Elizabeth explaining where she was she also told her to come by the circus and see her perform. Days go by and Elizabeth is still on her own. In her English class, her teacher assigned a pen pal that she has to write with the whole semester. Her pen pals name is Christina, with Celia being gone and, her finding out the kind of person Christina is which is outgoing girl, she helps celia get through the year with the letter writing. I really recommend this book. It was a really fun and exciting reading. Give it three out of five stars! So, go on and check it out!

Feeling Sory for Celia is a book that covers almost everything. There is romance, mystery, thrills, empathy, and the plot is amazing. I would reccomend this book to anyone because it is a good read for everyone.

OMG, this book was amazing. I mean, it's all consisted of notes between Elizabeth, Christina, Mrs.Clarry, and many others: but it nevers gets boring! This author did a FANTASTIC job writing this book. It made me want to go write my own type of thing like this. It's so good,I just can't believe it. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys reading. (although, probably no one under the age of 12) Anyway, READ THIS BOOK. You won't regret it. Seriously, people should make more books like this. :)

i just about love everything Jaclyn Moriarty has written. this is the first book she wrote and it is good. i love all the little connections in the book, its a little predictable in some places but in others you just don't see what could come next. its not really about feeling sorry for celia, celia was the one who created her own problems. its more about Elizabeth finding herself and the everyday life of a not so normal teenager, who thinks she's normal. its a good read.

This was a great book. It was very straightforward and interesting to read. Since it is made up of notes and letters I never got bored with long monologues. It was exciting and easy to read. I definetly recomend this book.

I really didn't like this book. It seemed to 'uggh' and I forced myself to read it. Most of the book was boring, but the adventurous parts happened very quickly. Then it went back to boring.

I loved this book! It was quick and easy to read. Feeling Sorry for Celia is filled with wit, sadness, and unusual events. The characters were very well developed and I loved how Elizabeth changed (in a good way) throughout the book. The ending was great. :) I recommend it to any teen girl!

This book is a page turner. I am not one to read a book at least not all the way through but I just couldnt put this book down. I felt I could really relate to the characters in the book. READ THIS BOOK YOU WONT BE DISAPOINTED!!!

I LOVED this book! It is laugh-out-loud funny. It's a feel-good ending, sucks you in with the plot line, and leaves you wanting more. I thought her mother was hilarious.

I think the book was really corney it made no sense to me. The book was in letter form and it went from one thig to another it made no sense. I don't get how you can write a story with making letters.

The story of Elizabeth losing her best friend Celia and finding a new one, Christina, through letters is well-written. In my opinion, this is Jaclyn Moriarty's best book so far. The Year of Secret Assignments just seems like a failed attempt to live up to this one. This book had me laughing out loud over and over again, and even though I first read it a few years ago, the humor and 'feel-goodness' of this book still gets to me every time.
