Jack and Christy have been best friends for over seven years. They play basketball and tennis together, they swim and skate together--even if Chris is better than Jack at everything. But now it's the summer before high school, and not everything is fun and games. Always a tomboy, Chris is suddenly turning into a world-class beauty. She starts wearing a pleated skirt to play tennis, instead of her usual "I stink, therefore I rant" -shirt. She even puts on some makeup. All the boys are falling for her, including Jack. Yet does he really love her, or is he just afraid of losing the friendship they've enjoyed for so long? With likable characters and plenty of laughs, And Sometimes Why is an engaging book about the changing nature of friendships. Narrator Scott Shina perfectly captures the confusion of adolescence as Jack struggles to understand his new feelings.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Funny and smartly written, And Sometimes Why cleverly captures the all-too-familiar havoc hormones can wreak on perfectly good friendships.”“ Amazon.com, editorial review
“Can tomboy Chris really be growing up and turning beautiful?…Farrell deftly captures the pain of rapidly changing friendships, kids’ social insecurities, and the pressure to keep up and look good…This is a strongly rendered and very appealing tale about friendship.” Booklist
“The writing is enjoyable and the characters are well drawn. A solid piece of contemporary fiction.” School Library Journal
