Oct 07, Amanda Holmes rated it really liked it Shelves: drama. Cloudy with a chance of boys is a really good book. It is about a girl named Alex who has a crush on a boy but doesn't want him to really know about it.
The next day she hear's about a play that is going on. She finds out that the play is Romeo and Juliet. She also hear's that the boy she likes is going to audition for the role of Romeo and if she get's the part of Juliet they would get to kiss. So they audition and she finds out that the boy got the part of Romeo but she did not get her part of Cloudy with a chance of boys is a really good book. So they audition and she finds out that the boy got the part of Romeo but she did not get her part of Juliet and a girl that she does not like got her part. So then Alex got all jealous because the other girl got the part that Alex wanted and Alex got the part of the nurse.
Alex didn't want to be the nurse so then she drops out of the play. Then she finds out that the boy actually has a crush on her and she heard that someone got a broken ankle and there is a part open now. It is a boy part so Alex does not know if she wants it but the boy convinced her to do it.
And she got that part. Then after a while in the book they both know they like each other and they live happily ever after. My favorite character in the book is Alex because she is sorta like me but yet she is not. She is kinda like me because she likes a boy and wants him to know and will do anything to get him and stuff like that. She isn't like me though because she is like sabotaging the person who is playing Juliet just because she likes the boy, and I would not do that.

Three sisters wish upon a fire on a stormy night, and experience varying stages of adolescence alongside their sisters. The middle sister in early junior high primarily narrates the story, with interludes from the other two sisters.
These note book scribblings and script-styled dialogue jut into the narrative, and whether a reader will appreciate them is a matter of personal taste. While some may find interludes about fortune telling or spy codes fun or cool, they help elongate a light tween rea Three sisters wish upon a fire on a stormy night, and experience varying stages of adolescence alongside their sisters. While some may find interludes about fortune telling or spy codes fun or cool, they help elongate a light tween read into a book rather long for its content.
Also, the problems these characters face are relevant to a tween audience, such as working on a science project with a boy or not getting the lead in the school play.
This is mostly a first crush and first kiss story, which may be somewhat premature for some but on-topic for others. Also included in this book are numerous Shakespeare references, some of which are not appropriate for elementary school children unfamiliar with the great playwright. This chapter book is recommended for a female tween audience ages nine to eleven.

The format that includes regular chapters Stevie's point of view , scripts Alex's point of view , and notes from Joey's notebook Joey is the youngest of t I quite enjoyed this series. This design allows the reader to see how differently each of the three sisters see the world around them and their various experiences.
Having several sisters myself I found I could easily relate to Stevie and her sisters and the ups and downs of their relationships. It also brought back memories of my own middle school experiences, which I would not want to relive for anything shudder, shudder. Feb 12, Arielle Davis rated it liked it. Dear Ms. Greenhouse, I got this book from the book fair.
It is about a girl Stevie Reel. She is a middle sister out of three siblings. She doesn't know much about boys and for her she is ok with that. But ever since she's gotten older things are changing at school. People are starting to get in relationships. A boy named Owen in her Earth Science class seems to keep looking at her.
The thing is Stevie doesn't really want a boyfriend. He Dear Ms. Her sisters know about boys. They are no help. Sincerely, Arielle PS. Greenhouse, I would compare this book to Absolutely Normal Chaos. It is the same type of book. They are both realistic fiction. These types of situations happen in real life. In the other book the girl is going through things with boys. They are also around the same age. Sincerely, Arielle Mar 13, The Styling Librarian rated it really liked it Shelves: kids-books.

Each was an excellent read. In fact there is a clear progression in length and difficulty of books from Stink, to Judy to Sisters. These stories revolve around a family with three daughters; I grew up the oldest of three boys and now have three children myself.

A long-ish charming story of three sisters who really genuinely enjoy and appreciate each other. As far as boy-girl relations go, each sister is of a slightly different mindset about those Alex, the oldest desperately wants her first kiss, Stevie is starting to reevaluate whether or not she thinks boys are gross, and Joey, the youngest, wholeheartedly prefers frogs to boys. Alex and Stevie definitely seemed to grow and mature - at least a little bit - over a short-ish period of time. Joey d A long-ish charming story of three sisters who really genuinely enjoy and appreciate each other.
Joey did not - but she's also quite young. The story mainly focused on times the sisters were together or interacting, so though the friends and adults weren't generally fully fleshed out, it wasn't problematic. The story itself is stuffed with quizzes, trivia, and notes "written" by the girls.

Very enjoyable, sure to be appreciated by many readers. May 26, Mckennakd96 rated it it was amazing. I thought this book was sooooo good because THE sisters club Joey, Stevie, and Alex are stuck at their house doing nothing in a really bad storm, so they pull something out of their rooms something special! After that night they go to school and tell their story. They also go out looking for frogs because Joey is obbsesed with them.

But, that just gives you something to be curious about. Once you get even further into the book it starts to become the cutest, funniest romance novel. I had fun reading it! It's al about how to deal with boy crushes and having male friends.

Cloudy with a Chance of Boys
I grew up with three sisters, so I know the joy and pain that comes from that haha. I felt that the book was a coming of age, transitioning from a child to a pre-teen more like it. There's no violence, swear words or sexual content. Although, there is a reference to th This book was not my cup of tea. Although, there is a reference to the B word and some underwear description, but what can I say?
Apr 08, Ms. B rated it really liked it Shelves: childrens , , series. Great book for tweens looking for realistic fiction about family or school! This is the story of 14 year-old Alex, 12 year-old Stevie and 10 year-old Joey; all three sisters have distinctly different personalities in this story about young love. Alex is a drama queen, Stevie is the practical one and Joey is a scientist and list maker.
Nov 12, Samantha rated it really liked it. It was a good book for tweens and teens. It also had a clever twist. A girl who gets partnered up with the new kid finds out he has a crush on her. Her older sister has a crush on a boy and he has a crush on her, so they're in that 'awkward stage'.
