Chapter One: Mistakes

Ugh What can I say, it’s a talent. A talent that I use to often in the art of screwing up. “ Missy J!” my mom yelled. And it was normal for her to do that. I ran downstairs as quick as I could and I almost crashed onto Charlie, my dog. I could tell she was going to yell about something I did or said. “ What is this about you being obsessed about some guy?” she asked, but I could feel the anger in her voice. I knew this sounded bad but, as my friends say, I’m a devoted crush and may have
this is kinda true except it was on the guys channel NOT the girl friends channel in real life
crossed the line sometime. ‘What! Who said that!?” I exclaimed as I looked at the computer screen. And yes, I knew it. It was Dona who had posted it on Facebook. Oh I just LOVE Facebook! A place for people to say rude things about each other. And the sad thing is it got twenty-four likes and twelve comments. “ So you still have a crush on Rick!” my mom exclaimed.

I must say she is persistent to make me move on from him. “That’s…well…true..but… what if he asks me out and..” But before I could finish I remembered everything in fifth grade, the teasing, the harassment, the songs, and of course his face. He was haunting me. Only because I made a mistake by trying to make him like me instead of Veira, who of course was in the popular clique. I ran up stairs, this time not crashing into Charlie, and then going to bed. But tomorrow was a school day and I had to prepare for the encounter of the popular kind.

It needs work. A lot. It has a good plot, but needs work.

Well, I enjoyed this. Quick and to the point. All tied together with a happy ending? Perfect. I think this was pretty good if I must say so. I'm having trouble beginning my book. Everyone keep an eye out. It's going to be called: In Time for Christmas. So excited!!! :P

This was an alright book, though it was a little short for my liking. I think you could have extended the text to make each chapter more than about three paragraphs. Perhaps you could add a bit more imagery and detail? Also, this seemed a little rushed; like you just typed it up without looking over it. As a writer, that is a very bad idea :/

As mentioned, there are a lot of spelling and grammar mistakes. I don't need to review that.

This has a great storyline! It's a really good book, but there's a lot of spelling mistakes. Some of the popular people's reactions when she starts coming to school with a new look seem a bit unrealistic. It's a really good book, though,  and I loved the ending.

actually it isn't unrealistic. It's happened to me. All I did was show up with a cute little outfit and all of a sudden attention. All the girls glared and cussed at me to stay away. But who cares what they say? What's that song? Your beautiful no matter what they say? isn't that wat it says? This seems to be the theme here :)

So is anyone going to stop saying how bad spelling is and say weather the story line was good or not? Just A Question.

I have to tell you, the summary sounded a lot like several chick flicks that I've heard of before.
