The first time she saw him, she flipped.
The first time he saw her, he ran.
Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen tells the story of two eighth graders that start to develop feelings for one another.
The writing of the book is unconventional. The story is told from a first-person perspective, but instead of telling the story from a single character's point of view the book flips between the two main characters.
So, you get to see what they both think of each other from the moment they meet in the second grade. Their views of each other wildly differ and it make for a fun read.
The book was adapted into a film by Rob Reiner (Sleepless in Seattle, The Story of Us) in 2010. The movie differs from the book right off the bat. It's set in the 1950/60s, whereas the book is set in modern day. The feeling behind the story is the same though, so give it a try.
Just a reminder for the teens out there...
Warm Bodies is out in theaters now! If you haven't read it, do it now!
