a classic Dec 20, 2005
I just recently read this book after reading the positive reviews. I really enjoyed it and wish I had read it when I was about 11 and lived for cute guys' approval. The main character goes after her goals even though that means competing against the boy she has a huge crush on. I love that she stays true to herself. She earns respect from others. I think this would be a great book for any preteen.
It wasn't what I expected Dec 18, 2005
I read this book for a book club of 4th grade girls. Most everyone else in the group liked it, but I didn't. It was hard to get into and the improper grammer was difficult to understand. I didn't like how each chapter was completely different. Once I would get into the chapter, it would end and the next chapter would be about something else altogether. Also, I agree with another reviewer that the ending was too obvious and predictable.
The Best Review You'll Ever Read! Nov 6, 2002
Philip Hall Likes Me, I Reckon Maybe was a very exciting book. I really liked how Beth had a moody attitude. She would try what ever popped into her mind. She never gave up on anything! I like the way Philip ran his club! Beth was never jealous of Philip or anybody else, but Philip was sure jealous of Beth when she finally beat him in the end. It is a good book about friendship!
