Three girls. Three boys. One of them's a total psycho.It's teenage life as it really feels. Only funnier.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.

Yes, I also read basically any other book available ...
Let me just start by saying I do t like epistolary novels. I like the word "epistolary", but the books themselves have always left me feeling removed and frustrated with a story. With the cast of Lydia, Cassie, Emily, Seb, Charlie, and even Matthew, the letters were a rich, satisfying, effective win...
I remember reading this one when I was much younger and I enjoyed it so much.
