What do Katie-Rose, Yasaman, Milla, and Violet all have in common? Other than being named after flowers, practically nothing. Katie-Rose is a film director in training. Yasaman is a computer whiz. Milla is third in command of the A list. And Violet is the new girl in school. They’re fab girls, all of them, but they sure aren’t friends. And if evil queen bee Medusa— ’scuse me, Modessa—has her way, they never will be. But this is the beginning of a new school year, when anything can happen and social worlds can collide . . . Told in Lauren Myracle’s inventive narrative style—here a fresh mix of instant messages, blog posts, screenplay, and straight narrative—Luv Ya Bunches, the first in a four-book series, is a funny, honest depiction of the shifting alliances and rivalries that shape school days, and of the lasting friendships that blossom from the skirmishes.

This book is so cute, that disliking it would be like disliking a basket of kittens. No question about it, its a GIRL book. For one thing, its decidedly PINK, with cartoon-like characters of the four girls in the story, that look a little like the Brat dolls, on the cover. Also, boys are only mentioned as an after thought in the book.  This book is about 4 girls, who all feel out of place for one reason or another and their relationships with each other and other girls in their classroom and their families.

Like Lauren Myracles previous books, ttyl, ttfn, l8r, g8r and bff , this book includes bits of IM chats between the girls and some transcripts of Katie Roses videos. Unlike those books, this book is solidly for the Middle Grade level (5-6th grade) in both reading level and content.

Its really cute and funny and I enjoyed it. You cant go wrong with this book for a 5/6th grade girl. Apparently, its intended to be the first in a series and it looks like theyre putting up a website (luvyabunches.com) to correspond with the website that one of the girls creates in the book. I think kids really enjoy some of these tie-ins, when theyre appropriate.
