    I loved this book! It had so many twists and turns! And the horoscopes continued to come true!

    This book is a pretty dry, typical, and sort of bland version of a middle schooler's life.Abby Waterman's personality is pretty fun and interesting, varying in the rest of the girls in her circle of friends like Chelsea Rinaldi. I would rate this book one star, but Abby, being the main character, has a unique personality. Therefore, I gave it the extra star. Her personality was the only thing that made me keep flipping the pages,My mom bought me this book the summer before sixth grade, I read it then and remembered being scared to go into the sixth grade because all the girls in this book care WAY too much what everyone else thinks of what they do. For example, Abby decided to run for class treasurer and her friends seemed shocked and disapproving. Chelsea directly says, "Nothing's wrong with running for class treasurer, I'm just surprised, that's all." and the third person narration says, afterwards, "Chelsea said, but her tone implied that it wasn't something SHE'D ever do."I thought, wow, why is Abby still friends with these girls.Another thing that got under my skin was how disapproving Sara was off Abby going to the dance with Marcus.Not to mention how sorry I felt for Abby having to put up with Chelsea's attitude about the dress she wanted to wear to the dance, saying it was "totally t-shirt material and not dance-worthy."Abby did end up going to the dance with Marcus like she had planned and wearing that same cornflower blue dress she had intended on wearing.Krista was an excellent addition to the characters. She caused the sort of bullying that actually DOES occur in every middle school.Abby, coming from a small grade school for grades 1-8 wasn't used to all the conversing about boys and kissing and her intelligent thoughts were preserved, thank the Lord.She actually did her homework, unlike Chelsea, and Abby seemed to care about her grades and the purpose of going to school.All Chelsea cared about were boys, makeup, and gossip.I do NOT recommend reading this book until you have gotten through sixth grade. You will get scared that everyone will be rude and obsessed with dances and dresses and boys.It is NOT like that at all.I guess it just depends on the personalities. I didn't care what anyone thought of me, and I hung out with mainly whoever was nice to me and didn't try to change me, unlike Chelsea in Abby's case. I was not part of the popular group, since that was the only group in my school that had loads of drama.I hung out with whoever I liked, and sometimes I got picked on because I couldn't fit into a specific mold or label, but it wasn't like I cared.I think the best advice for the Mckinley student body would be "Those who matter don't mind, and those who mind don't matter."I liked the ending the best because Chelsea came to realize that going with Nathan, the most popular guy in the grade above her and Abby, wasn't the best choice because he ignored her the whole time. Meanwhile, Abby and Marcus were breaking down on the dance floor and having the time of their lives at the dance like I did.That was the most realistic scene.I liked the twist on the middle school story of Abby's and Chelsea's horoscopes. And Mimi McCoy did make their reactions to them pretty realistic. One of my close friends is always checking her horoscopes on Facebook. I think they're fun to look at, ,but you should be careful like Abby found out in the end to not shape your life to fit them. They are for entertainment purposes only, especially ones you receive via text message.

    This book was really funny. I liked how her horoscope became her reality. She didn't believe in them at first, but after they kept coming true, she did. Encourages the reader to keep an open mind and give new things a chance.

    Reviewed by Allison Fraclose for TeensReadToo.comAbby considers herself pretty lucky to have Chelsea for a best friend. Ever since Abby's first day in a new school and new town, Chelsea has been there to give her the inside scoop on how to stay cool and popular while navigating the sixth grade. Now that the spring dance is coming up, Chelsea is determined to ask Nathan, a seventh grader, to go with her, and insists that Abby ask one of his friends so that they can go as a group. Abby hasn't even considered who to ask yet (the dance is girl's choice), but she doesn't even know any of Nathan's friends. How is she supposed to ask one of them to a dance? Abby's life gets a little more interesting when she starts getting daily horoscope updates thanks to this online service that Chelsea signed her up for. Although Abby never believed in things like horoscopes, when it tells her to "go for" an exciting new opportunity, right after her teacher recommends that she run for class treasurer, Abby takes that as a sign, and begins to believe a little more. Thanks to Chelsea's prodding, Abby now needs courage to ask Nathan's friend to the dance, and the horoscopes keep telling her to "take a chance on someone new." While Abby struggles to take that chance, she's sure that the universe is directing her and she now must follow. So why do things seem much more complicated than they need to be? This is the second book by Ms. McCoy that I've read for Scholastic's Candy Apple line, and once again, she's managed to impress me with her excellent characterization and natural dialogue. She makes her books so easy to enjoy.

    Estoy en desacuerdo con la nota en la contraportada del libro que indica que es para las edades de 8 a 12 años. Hablando estrictamente por nivel de lectura, quizás sea apropiado, pero temáticamente, es mejor para una edad de 13 en adelante.Yo dudaba de su calidad al comenzar el libro, puesto que presenta muchos de los estereotipos de la adolescencia que no quiero que mi hija absorba: la importancia de ser popular y vestirse correctamente, para nombrar uno. Pero la personaje principal es admirable y va en contra de esa moraleja, y el fin del libro enfatiza la importancia de seguir el corazón y la consciencia de uno mismo, y de no hacer caso del que dirán. Creo que sería un libro que les gustaría a los jóvenes.
