Criss Cross, by Lynne Rae Perkins
This book is about a few kids who have known each other since they were very little getting older and growing up.They are all facing problems with love, school, clothes etc. They all get together and listen to a radio show in Lenny's Dad's truck once a week. Debbie helps Mrs. Bruning around her house (because Mrs. Bruning has arthritis). While doing this Debbie meets Mrs. Bruning's grandson Peter, and they fall in love...just one problem, he lives in California. My favorite part of the book was the necklace. Debbie has a necklace that she loses. Throughout the book the necklace is owned by one of the friends and then another but none of them know it is their friends necklace. It is funny. This book is humorous and real, a good read.
