Feeling Sorry for Celia

Elizabeth!!!! Look at this note!! Over here!!! On the fridge!!!!!!!! Hope you’re feeling better. If you’re dead, ring me. I’m at an emergency meeting of the poetry club. I want to make you a special lemon souffle. The recipe is in the bottom draw – you’re welcome to begin it anytime. (And see if you can think of a slogan for raspberry-flavoured cat food). Love – your thoughtful and considerate Mum. PS: Have you heard anything from Celia yet?

Elizabeth’s best friend Celia has run away. Meanwhile, she has her own problems: keeping her divorced parents happy, mourning her lack of suitors, and finishing mounds of homework. But could there be hope ahead in the shape of the Boy on the Bus? Told in letters, fridge notes and post-it notes, her hilarious story will make you laugh and cry.

    It was a really good book! The only thing that made me make it 4 star is because it made me cry and never put it down, even it the toilet. And I got in big trouble for that. But overall I LOVEEEEE IT!

  • Hey!!!! Over here!! This review is good!!!! Feeling sorry for Celia is very cleverly told through the art of notes, emails, postcards and letters. You learn loads without actually reading speech or thoughts from the characters. You start to work out who Elizabeth should be friends with towards the end…It’s not good to lose a friend like her! That’s why I’m feeling…sorry for Celia.
