Cross Your Heart, Connie Pickles Love, money, friendship and incredibly uncomfortable underwear All these eternal mysteries are small challenges to Constance de Bellechasse Too bad the glamorous inner persona of Constance comes through only as plain old Connie Pickles in everyday lifeConnie s first order of business finding her mother a new husband Connie enlists the help of her best friend, Julie, and before long everything spirals out of control Boy crazy Delilah begins fluttering around Connie s best guy friend, Will, and ever reliable Will has been acting strangely awkward around Connie But with a little luck and a lot of determination, Connie is sure that she can make everything right again in her world Four years ago, I originally gave it 5 stars because I never considered the technicality of a book back then This book was one of the first few that I ve never finished Ironically, I ve loved this book so much that I ve lost count on the times I ve reread it.Looking back, I realized that although it was light hearted and cute, it was too dense Also, I never liked the main character She was your typical Mary Sue. Cross Your Heart, Connie Pickles is a little like Harriet the Spy meets Ghost World This book was the personal diary of 14 year old Connie Pickles and her meddling misadventures It was both laugh out loud funny and a realistic, endearing coming of age story Some children s books are written solely for kids, but some kids books can be appreciated evenfrom an adult perspective I found myself thinkingthan once that kids were probably missing out on some of the book s insight, Cross Your Heart, Connie Pickles is a little like Harriet the Spy meets Ghost World This book was the personal diary of 14 year old Connie Pickles and her meddling misadventures It was both laugh out loud funny and a realistic, endearing coming of age story Some children s books are written solely for kids, but some kids books can be appreciated evenfrom an adult perspective I found myself thinkingthan once that kids were probably missing out on some of the book s insight, some parts of the total message of the book, and even some of the humor Connie lives in a small flat in the UK with her mother and two small siblings Her main objective at the start of her personal diary is to find her mother a new boyfriend Her father passed away when she was a baby, and her stepfather and mother had been divorced for a while Connie gets a Saturday job at the local pharmacy with the intention of fixing her mom up with the cute, young owner, Mr Leakey The job and Mr Leakey both turn out teach her muchthan she bargained for.Both of Connie s female best friends seemed to have grown up in a lot of ways without her They are already going to parties and snogging boys Even though Connie is still close with the other girls, she feels like she might be missing out And Connie s very best friend, William, is acting evenstrangely All of a sudden, he s acting like he likes her asthan a friend, which Connie doesn t want at all Or does she The progression of Connie s feelings towards William is so heartfelt and honest At first, she s so scared of her feelings for him, that she is rude and almost mean to him William is the perfect first love He s so sweet and continues to like Connie even after she pushes him away The way he rides up and down the street while she s at work struck me as so darn cute something that could only be cute between 14 year olds in love Also, she was always opening her door to find that he had left chocolates on the doorstep for her Still, it was hard for her to seethan her best friend in William.I loved Mr Leakey as a father figure for Connie He was such a thoughtful, reassuring influence on her He guided her to open her mind to see different viewpoints, not to blindly follow what others say, including himself He wanted her to take others advice and then think for herself And Connie herself was just a fantastic character, so self assured and vulnerable at the same time Her strong sense of herself and funky thrift store clothes willl pull her through even the roughest parts of adolescence I can t wait to read the next book in this series, and I hope Durrant writes , because I can t get enough of Connie Pickles Reviewed for For some weird reason, I didn t

Goodreads so helpfully supplies I love Connie s honesty and her confusion But it s not the type of confusion that makes you want to make her be real just so you can punch her in the face It s the type of confusion that you can relate with I loved the way she described how the nicer William was theannoyed she got with him because that is so believable I liked this book because I din t get that impression of it trying to make you love it I didn t get the impression that the characters were perfect or that their flaws were clich d, I was surprised by it and saddened by it Throughout it all I was glad that I had decided to take it out after all I don t quite know what to compare it to, but for those who liked Raspberry rules by Karen McCombie, you might just like this Acabo de releer este
