    Totally Joe por James Howe (amysisson)
    amysisson: "Flipped" tells the same events from two different perspectives, with earnest and real teen POV. "Totally Joe" has only one perspective but with a creative format -- and with the other books in this series, you do get that multiple POV. Both highly recommended.… (mais)

Slow start for me (put it away in first chapter but then picked it up again) but became an sweet, enjoyable glimpse into both perspectives of their personal growth. ( )

A he-said-she-said story that begins with the she falling in love at the age of seven with her new neighbor, the he. They take turns telling the story of the next six years from their own perspectives. The book has a romantic comedy feel, but is also surprisingly heartfelt because of its likable characters and some genuinely serious emotional turmoil that goes beyond the central romance.

The reader has to hear almost every plot point twice, which slows things down, but it is very interesting how the same event can register in very different ways to the people who were there.

I'm a total sucker for good rom-coms, so I really liked it. ( )

First sentence: All I've ever wanted is for Juli Baker to leave me alone. For her to back off--you know, just give me some space. It all started the summer before second grade when our moving van pulled into her neighborhood. And since we're now about done with the eighth grade, that, my friend, makes more than half a decade of strategic avoidance and social discomfort. She didn't just barge into my life. She barged and shoved and wedged her way into my life.

Premise/plot: Bryce Loski and Juli Baker narrate this he-said, she-said middle grade novel. It was love at first sight--in second grade--for Juli Baker. But for Bryce, well, Juli is a pesky, pesty neighbor that follows him--literally--everywhere. But in eighth grade, however, roles seemed to have flipped. She begins to doubt her feelings for him--there's more to attraction that just eyes and smile--and he begins to see her in a whole new way.

This one opens with a flashback scene of sorts showing the introduction or "meet cute" of this unlikely pair. But most of the story chronicles sixth grade through eighth grade. Reader see the same exact events through two pairs of eyes.

My thoughts: I am rereading this one after watching the movie for the first time. I ADORED the movie. It definitely changed some things up. For one, it took the contemporary setting of Flipped and made it a period piece. In the movie, the story unfolds in 1957-1963. And the soundtrack is FANTASTIC. I think one reason--pure speculation--to make this switch is it feels a little less controversial to have a girl literally chasing down a boy and smelling him if you set it in the distant past. Also some of the viewpoints of the characters seem to align more with what you'd expect in days long ago. (Teasing about being having a r****d in the family, etc.) Some of the scenes just have JERKS.

This one is thought-provoking. Love it or hate it. I definitely think the book doesn't address consent or boundaries--a must for a contemporary book being published post #metoo. The main message, I believe, is looking beyond appearances. What makes someone attractive. What makes you "flip" for someone. Juli is best for illustrating this. She's so accustomed to "loving" or "crushing" on Bryce, that she doesn't stop to consider WHO he is. What kind of person is Bryce? What is his character? If she really knew him--actually knew him--would she still love him? Is her attraction all surface-level? As for Bryce, he seems much less self-aware and just a bit clueless and immature. (Not for not liking girls. But just on processing and observing the world.)

The book definitely is open-ended and ambiguous. As is the movie--to a certain degree--but the closing music, "Let It Be Me" and the fact that she joins him outside to help him plant the new tree, does add an element of hope that the book doesn't quite reach. ( )

I watched the movie way before I read this book, which was probably when I was 14. This used to be one of my comfort movies to watch and I liked the book just as much as I liked the movie. I think my reviews are greatly affected by the wave of nostalgia I feel when I think about this book.
Even though there are a few things like "the auction where the girls have picnic with the boys they like for a fund raiser" which were not really my favorite, I still liked the characters and the vibes it gave me. The open ending was amazing and younger me liked to ponder over the possibilities of an alternate ending. ( )

Well that was actually quite sweet!

I really enjoyed the alternate POV on the same events. Originally I thought it would feel repetitive but their views on how particular events played out were so different that it was enjoyable to see it through their eyes. There are lots of people who want a sequel but personally I liked where it ended, on a note of hope and possibility. ( )
