Review for The Year of Secret Assignments by Jaclyn Moriarty

"The Year Of Secret Assignments"
Author: Jaclyn Moriarty
Publisher: Arthur A. Levine Books
Source: Public Library
340 pages
Three female students from Ashbury High write to three male students from rival Brookfield High as part of a pen pal program, leading to romance, humiliation, revenge plots, and war between the schools. -Summary from Goodreads

  The summary doesn't due justice for this book in my opinion. This book was witty, funny, charming and expertly written. The genre of this book along with the plot line appeals to me and that's why I picked it. The characters were very well constructed and their personalities very distict. I found it so interactive, due to it being written through diarys, journals, emails, letter and post notes. I never read a book written like this but it sure gave me a excellent first impression. Jaclyn made the whole story flow, I never had to guess what was going on. Though it is a few years old, I believe this is a great book. It was a touching, hilarious, light hearted read that I would recommend to everyone! I LOVED this book so much I'm going to buy it soon! I give this book FIVE STARS!!


Dear Emily,

I'm on the oval right now, and I can hardly see this paper through the tears of life-giving joy.

See those girls sitting cross-legged and singing the theme song from Friends? They wouldn't be doing that right now if it wasn't for me. See that guy over there taking the shoelace out of one of his sneakers? Same thing. That girl picking her nose? SHE WOULD BE DEAD AND HER NOSE WOULD BE FULLY UNPICKED IF IT WAS NOT FOR ME.

That guy with the sneakers is now using the lace to strangle someone, which is beautiful thing to see, Emily, and I made it possible, and that's why you are blurry through my tears.

Okay, check it out, I'll tell you what happened.

I was in the admin block, outside the principal's office. I won't go into the reason why I was there, because that would destroy the flow of the story.

The fact is, I was there, and on my own because the secretary just went out for a moment, and the telephone rang...............
