Description

This Booklist Editor's Choice interweaves the writings of six Australian highschoolers. When an English assignment forces "snobby" Ashbury students Lydia, Emily, and Cassie to exchange letters with "low-life" Brookfield guys, Lydia and Emily are surprised to find their Brookfield pen pals so kind and civilized. But after Cassie's cross-town correspondent threatens her, the friends plan a series of madcap missions designed to teach this malevolent male a lesson he won't forget.

Professional reviews

"A cast of performers gives convincing portraits of a range of teen emotions. Using the convention of letters exchanged between two very different groups of kids, the story revolves around an English assignment between two rival schools, one snotty and highbrow (the girls) and one with a rep for lowlifes (the boys). While testing each other's limits with secret assignments, the girls, who are best friends, and the boys from across town come to know and, unexpectedly, like each other. It must be said that the story contains adult language and themes, but overall it offers a refreshingly original story line, great humor, and a thoughtful message. D.G.
