Feeling Sorry for Celia by Jaclyn Moriarty
By Alexia - TABSeptember 4, 2012
Fifteen-year-old Elizabeth Clarry's life is quite complicated. Her only communication with her mother is through strange and hilarious notes left on the fridge and now her cheating father (who's been absent most of her life) is suddenly moving back to town. Her best friend Celia keeps running away, and no one knows where she disappears to. On top of all that, her English teacher decides to bring back the "Joy of the Envelope," so soon a complete stranger knows more about Elizabeth than anyone else. As they say, "A lot can happen in the time it takes to write a letter." I highly recommend this book. It is a hilarious tale that captures the little dramas of being a teenager in a funny and captivating way.
Oh, and no one dies, which is always a plus! This is a great read if you are looking for something awesome/funny/adventurous/amazing!!
