    reread this book as it was one of my childhood favorites. and now i remember why i like it so much. my rating, however, might be a little biased since this book brings out the nostalgic feels. i actually cried. don't ask me why. i don't know why. i wish i did. but i don't.

    Ugh!!! The book I wanted, was on hold so I decided to get a different book while I wait. So I pick up this book. It looked like a nice easy read. I decided to read it because I thought I could relate to the main character. Nope! Total opposite! She is so shy she lets her best friend walk away from her and become someone else's best friend. She is so blind she couldn't see that her friend Justin had a major crush on her! She was too busy skipping around in lala-land. Ugh! She has all of these lit [...]

    This book is one of those books that I take out and read whenever I can't get to sleep at night, or when I'm bored and feel like spacing out. It's a typical coming of age kind of story, but I found the characters extremely uninteresting and the plot to be, well, an overused, obvious story. Authors of these books never seem to consider that sometimes there isn't a nice group of bland, smiley friends waiting for you. Sometimes you're on your own, and you have to fend for yourself a little more. Th [...]

    A cut-above the usual "friends-growing-apart" saga. Lisa Papademitriou is so deft at balancing humor and pathos that this is one of the better novels about self-discovery, identity, and belonging. Not sure what the art department was thinking with this cover (maybe trying to remind readers of LOVE, STARGIRL?) but at least it's not another photo of a girl's feet in socks.

    Sixth-Grade Glommers, Norks, and Me by Lisa Papademetriou seemed, overall, a relatively average book.The protagonist, Allie, has her world turned upside down as her longtime childhood friend leaves her behind and she struggles to find her place before finding acceptance among new friends. This book focused on the changes that people around the protagonist experience as they go through the first grade of middle school.While the message it was trying to send (find your own place, don't always stic [...]

    "Sixth-Grade Glommers, Norks, and me" by Lisa Papademertriou is about a girl in sixth grade that has lots of problems. The book talks about how a girl in sixth grade has a friend that leaves her and she makes new friends that she ends liking. furthermore, the book says that she gets asked to the dance by a so called nerd and every one freaks out. Additionally, the book explains that she faces her fear and goes to the dance with him and loves it. overall, the main message is that you should get t [...]

    I mean, it was okay. It was your classic middle-school drama story. It wasn't that interesting. Also the back of the book is misleading in some ways. Also, it had an ending that didn't really wrap everything up. It is the kind of book that needs an epilogue, but it doesn't. I wouldn't recommend it.

    For Allie, sixth-grade brings many changes, but at least she still has her best friend . . . or does she? Tamara is the cute, cool-dressing one while Allie is the tomboy soccer star. Slowly the two drift apart while Tam drifts closer to former frenemy Renee. Renee teases other kids ruthlessly and even makes mean remarks about Allie. Allie becomes more confused when Tam copies Allie's lab report and then blames Allie for getting caught. Allie learns to stick up for her new friends even though Tam [...]

    I must admit, I really did enjoy this book. I absolutely love humorous books, and I certainly found that here. I didn't find it as sad as others had told me, but for some reason I really liked it.A lot more then I thought I would. Yes, this is a book about a girl with a crush drama, but that nitpick seemed to fade as I read the book.What I also liked about this book, is that I walked away with more then I did before. This wasn't a book like 97 Ways To Make Your Dog Smile, it was just a book that [...]

    The book "Sixth-Grade Glommers , Norks ,and me" talks about these two best friends and their experiences in the 6th grade. While reading this book I connected to the characters Allie and Tamara by 'text to self' because of the similarities of the 6th grade. In my opinion, the book was very interesting and I would recommend this book to people who like realistic fiction. One of the strengths of the book is when Tamara becomes friends with her arch-enemy which causes Allie to get extreamly jealous [...]

    The book Sixth - Grade Glommers, Norks, and me is about a girl named Allie Kimball and her first year of middle school, She is no longer the oldest kid in her school she is now the baby or the new kid. Allie thinks going into the new school year will be fine because she has lots of friend but she soon discovers that she only has one class with her best friend maybe middle school is going to harder then Allie though. I thought this book was a easy read, also if you like books that relate to you t [...]

    This book takes you through a typical elementary to middle school transition. I loved how the author incorporated humor and suspense throughout the novel. The only problem I had with the book is that I felt like it ended too abruptly. It felt like a term paper I had to write once, but had to cut it short because it didn't fit the maximum page requirements. I can tell the author tried to cover up that she was trying to finish it early by having the main character sum up what had happened througho [...]

    this is not a very subjected book but is really good. it is about a girl who goes into 6th grade which in her state is middle school she meets new friends and her old best friend is now a cheerleader and is really rude and has got that attitude. she is a soccer player JUST LIKE ME! i really enjoyed it i learned that just because ur friends met new friends doesnt mean it is the end of the world u can always meet new friends that sometimes u will understand they r even nicer then ur other

    What an adorable book for middle schoolers or those soon to be middle schoolers! This book speaks so much truth about how insecure preteens are and how they make such poor choices in friends. But, being yourself is the most important thing. People will like you for who you are if they believe you are genuine. Plus, I love that lesson of don't judge a book by its cover, or its movie! Everyone, regardless of their physical appearance has quality and is worth giving a chance. ☺️. A must read fo [...]

    This is a great middle reader book. Allie is heading to sixth grade with her best friend, Tam. As the year progresses Allie and Tam drift apart and some cruelty incurs between them. It isn't over the top, but certainly indicative of what happens in junior high all too often. Allie struggles to find where she fits in and realizes it doesn't always involve easy choices. This book would be a great suggestion for younger chapter book readers who are just starting to tackle these sort of issues. No c [...]

    L'INIZIOIl mio primissimo libro della serie "Le ragazzine", punto d'inizio della mia passione per la lettura. La storia è semplicissima, ma adatta ad una lettrice accanita in erba, che ne è rimasta incantata al punto da leggerlo e rileggerlo.P.S. Questo romanzo mi ricorda il mare, i cruciverba di Tom & Jerry (a cui alternavo la lettura) e i panini con prosciutto cotto e Philadelphia.

    This is a great story for girls just getting ready to start middle school. Papademitriou uses humor to balance the heartache of a young girl's self-discovery and growth apart from her elementary school best friend. I absolutely recommend it for young readers in the spring semester of their last year of elementary school, or as a summertime read before the beginning of middle school. It's really fun!

    Very humorous and frighteningly accurate. Although 6th Grade for me was like, 3 years ago, but the way the author writes about the main character's experiences are just sooo scarily accurate enough that makes the book so interesting. Not to mention that it's fast-paced too, so it doesn't make the book to appear quite lengthy or boring in any sort of way. Will definitely recommend my friends and will certainly read more books by this author. Well worth reading. End of story.

    This was an awesome book it only took me 1 and a half days to read it. Specially since I am going into 6th grade next year. It doesn't make it sound that bad. not that I thought it would be. Lisa has done a great job writing this book. I am now going to read more of her books, this one has inspired me! Thanks for reading my review. Sincerely, Book-Nook

    From this book what i learned is something like if you have a friend and you want it to stay that way forever then you can keep in very close contact. Or else someone will steal your friend just like my worst enemy where i used to live stole one of my best friends just because i moved but we still keep in close contact

    I enjoyed this book, but I could already tell what would happen in this kind of plot. This book some what reminds of Ginger Snaps by Cathy Cassidy, except it wasn't as detailed. Over all it was a fair book, the made up words were a nice touch and I like the fact that Ali realized that Chris wasn't her dream guy after all.

    Even though this book is for elementary-jr. high school age, I got really into and opinionated about this book. I liked Allie, and her innocent and good-natured interactions with both Justin and Orren. I also couldn't stand Tam and Renee, it was so unfair! Overall, this book caught my interest way more than I had expected.

    This book was interesting. I thought it began as any average book but i became hooked when Papademitriou began to show how mean the teens are. The characters are great and this is a good book for teens because it shows how things change in a split second during this stage of lid and that you have to learn to be independent sometimes.

    This is pretty good book. It is about Allie who goes into 6th grade, she meets new friends and her old best friend is now a cheerleader and is really rude and has attitude. Allie she is a soccer player. I learned that just because your friends met new friends doesnt mean it is the end of the world. You can always meet new friends that sometimes understand you even better than your old friends.

    Picked it up at a book fair last year. It wasn't the best book, and the made-up words got a bit confusing at times. Still, having experienced that part of my life already, I could relate to Allie a bit.

    I read this book because my daughter in 4th grade thought I should. I enjoyed the book but thought the content was a bit above her age. It does teach about the changes of moving up to middle school, friend changes, and accepting who you are and who others are.

    I can't think of a 5th or 6th grade girl who wouldn't love this book.Cool word play (predorkament, frieend) and intensely believable. I gobbled its message about standing up to meanies, cheats and fakes.

    This book was very cute. I know that may be an insult to a sixth-grade book. I loved Allie and her made up words that were at the beginning of every chapter. I also loved that she was strong and didn't give in to her peers. A great book and well executed.

    I finished this book today It ended with the main Character who is ALiie, doing what she likes to do. She decided not to mourn over her friend who left her, made new friends and left her blank world
