Why I chose this book
It emphasis on acceptance and how close friends can be through sleepovers, secrets laughter and advices.

This is the time where her best friends, encourage her.
Lucy seems to be out on a limb. Everybody has a boyfriend except her, and since she put Tony on the back burner he's found someone else. Then on a spa weekend with Izzie, she meets someone who seems just right for her. And he feels the same way about her. But after a while, Lucy starts to feel smothered. Can someone love you too much? Maybe the life of a singleton isn't so bad after all! She didn’t feel bad because she has the company of her friends with sleepovers, and laughers.
This book should be read by all fellow teenagers. WHY?
It is an interesting book as it teaches us that we should be trustful to our friends. A lost and broken Friendship was due to a mate in a clique who let the secret out of the bag.
We strongly recommend this book as we ourselves have gained much after reading this book, learning that friendship is very important in our daily life. This coincides with the importance of Olympic value.
