So first and foremost, This book is awesome, and you should definitely read it, because I think you'd like it, boy or girl! The book starts with Charlotte. She wants to be a geologist when she is older, and she loves Scrabble! One day, her dad gets sick and put into the hospital, and she is really worried about him, and she doesn't want to tell her friend at first, but when she does, She thinks her friend is really nice about it, but than she overhears her friend talking to another girl, and Bridget says “I know I’m being a terrible friend saying this, especially since her dad is in the hospital, but lately I’ve felt like a babysitter. It’s like . . . I don’t know. We don’t have anything in common anymore.”Of course that makes Charlotte super upset!
It alternates between Ben and Chalotte. Ben loves Scrabble like Charlotte, and they play online together all the time! He also loves Harry Potter, Recycling, and presidential history. He figures out his parents are getting a divorce, and he decides he wants to give a phone call to his "arch nemesis" in scrabble, Charlotte (AKA, Lottie Lock). 5 stars from me! It's one of the best books I have read in a while!
