The Ashbury-Brookfield pen pal program was designed to bring together the "lowlife Brooker kids" (as they're known to the Ashburyites) and the "rich Ashbury snobs" (as they're called by the Brookfielders) in a spirit of harmony and the Joy of the Envelope. But things don't go quite as planned. Lydia and Sebastian trade challenges, like setting off the fire alarm at Brookfield. Emily tutors Charlie in How to Go On a Date with a Girl. But it's Cassie and Matthew who both reveal and conceal the most about themselves -- and it's their secrets and lies that set off a war between the two schools.

    This is the book that got me hooked on Jaclyn Moriarty. It's told totally in the form of letters - email, snail mail, etc. The writing is witty, funny ... and yes, there is a story!

    I found this to be a laugh out loud story. I very much enjoyed all the different personalities. I listened to the audio version and felt that they did a wonderful job.

    This novel made me laugh out loud. I started listening to it and just couldn't put it down, so I picked up the hard copy. This author also wrote Feeling Sorry for Celia which is about the same high schools, but the characters and story is completely different. The only thing the same is the humor (this one is better) and premise of two high school corresponding with each other via a pen pal program.I would recommend this to anyone who needs a good a laugh with a light hearted mystery. I think the audio version is outstanding. The various narrators and their Australian accents definately make it well worth listening too.
