In the old days, when Kate had no interest in romance, she never cared what other people thought. Now, it appeared, love was turning her into a rotten human being.

Eleven-year-old Kate Faber wishes she could talk to her best friend Marilyn about this. But Marilyn is no longer her best friend. Or is she? Kate and Marilyn had always been the kind of best friends who lived on the same block for their entire lives and who could agree on the kind of boys worth kissing or who should be invited to their sleepover. The kind of best friends who didn't need words to talk, but always just knew.

But lately Marilyn has started to think that Kate can be a bit babyish. And Kate thinks that Marilyn is acting like a big snob. And a lot of the time, well, it feels as though they don't know each other anymore. Somehow nothing is the same, but secretly, Kate and Marilyn both wish it could be.

    " I read this book in the beginning of 6th grade and I cant remember everything about this book. I remember it was a sweet book about friendship. Its a good book for girls just starting middle school and helps prepare them for conflicts with girls and boys. "

    " It was a bit kiddish. I picked it up without having a look through it, and realised it was written really big. The usual stuff about friends growing apart. I should really start reading something a bit more original. "
