Person vs. Person: Because Julianna got mad at Bryce because he was throwing away her eggs that her chickens laid for a year now cause he thought he and his family were going to get salmonella because of her dirty yard.

Summary

Flipped is about a boy named Bryce and a girl named Julianna (Juli) and Juli likes him but Bryce doesn't like her and its told through both of their views on how stuff happens between the two and their lives like Juli starts to lose feelings for Bryce throughout the book but Bryce gains feelings for Juli throughout the book but he doesn't want to accept it or he's figuring out he likes her?!

Theme

The theme is basically like " Don't judge a book by it's cover" it developed because when Bryce meet Juli she thinks she weird and nasty because of her yard and her chickens and makes fun of her with his friends but once his grandpa makes friends with Juli Bryce gets to know Juli better and he starts to like her for who she really is and that shes not what she looks like or seems to be.

Evaluation

I recommend this book to my friends and others because it was a really good book seeing how it's told in both perspectives of Bryce and Juli and it's a book for you if you like a little bit of romance.
