  • "Cross Your Heart, Connie Pickles" is a little like "Harriet the Spy" meets "Ghost World." This book was the personal diary of 14 year old Connie Pickles and her meddling misadventures. It was both laugh out loud funny and a realistic, endearing coming-of-age story. Some children's books are written solely for kids, but some kids' books can be appreciated even more from an adult perspective. I found myself thinking more than once that kids were probably missing out on some of the book's insight, [...]


  • For some weird reason, I didn't think I was going to like this book. The reason was the front cover and description. They sounded someh.But now, I am so glad that I did read it. It wasn't entirely remarkable, but for some reason I loved this book. Whether it's the characters or Connie or the descriptions or the story. Well, I don't know. What I do know is that I'm glad that I gave it a chance because when it came down to it this book was good. I'm not going to give a description because a) I dou [...]


  • Acabo de releer este libro. Recuerdo que mi madre me lo compró hace ya bastante tiempo y me encantó. Cuando empecé en y quise poner nota a los libros que había leído hacía años, me preocupaba no estar poniendo una nota justa, ya que con el tiempo se me había borrado esa primera impresión y no recordaba los detalles, así que me propuse ir releyendo todos esos libros a lo largo del tiempo. Este es el primero.El libro cuenta la historia de Connie Pickles, una chica de 14 años. Connie qu [...]


  • It is a good book and written in the style of a diary, which I like its a good book I going to read the next one!


  • Un libro delizioso e delicato, a metà tra chick lit e letteratura per l'adolescenza, rivolto alle ragazze e non solo. Connie Pickles, al secolo Constance de Bellechasse, ha una famiglia di cui deve prendersi cura: il papà è scomparso prematuramente, i nonni sono lontani, la mamma - francese - è tanto carina quanto incapace (così pensa Connie!) di trovarsi l'uomo giusto, dopo la separazione da Jack, con cui ha allargato la famiglia con i piccoli Cyril e Marie. E allora sarà Connie a cercare [...]

  • Very good book! Very engaging and makes you constantly want to read more! A bit of a weak story line but ultimately a good read. I would recommend it to 12-14 year olds. The only downside to this book is that it ends on a huge cliffhanger which leaves to to guess what happens next!


  • Cross your heart Connie Pickles is a book about a girl who wants to find a perfect man for her mom. She also wants to win the foreign exchange but her family is not in a very good position economically. With all that happening she then starts to see that her best guy friend Will is changing and her feelings toward him too. So what is Connie going to do now, read it if you want to find out though there is something you must knoe in some parts there are talks of sexual relationships and smoking to [...]


  • Bought this book for my soon to by 10 year old daughter. It was in the book store under the 8-13 year old section. As I was reading it I was surprised about the things she was talking about and realized this is NOT a book for a child. I, however enjoyed it. It was a lot of fun to read and had a cute ending, but being a grown up I could appreciate it a bit more. Maybe will let my daughter read this when she is in high school.


  • Four years ago, I originally gave it 5 stars because I never considered the technicality of a book back then. This book was one of the first few that I've never finished. Ironically, I've loved this book so much that I've lost count on the times I've reread it.Looking back, I realized that although it was light-hearted and cute, it was too dense. Also, I never liked the main character. She was your typical Mary Sue.


  • I wouldn't say i liked it, but it was a fun read. It made me reminisce of my highschool years - a time when there was never a day that passed without writing on my journal about my best friends and frenemies; boys and crushes; and all those bits of drama most teenagers go through in the trying years of adolescence.


  • Cute and quirky, although not the most well-written book. A fun read though I thought Connie was a bit too full of herself. Glad she realised this later on :) A disappointing, rushed ending as the author seemed to be attempting to tie up all loose ends in less than ten pages. Won't read this book again


  • Cute. I would definitely recommend for those ages 12-13. At times it felt light but then would show the darker side of being a teen in the 21st century. I hope Durrant writes for an older audience in the future, I bet it would be great.


  • Horrible book. The ending was such a let down i'm not even going to give it a rating. I just hated it. It seems liek a good book but this time my instincts were wrong. nevre ever giving it a second chance.


  • Picked this up at random in the school library. I don't usually read really girly books and aren't really keen on them. Although I did enjoy the story, I found the characters a bit immature.


  • This was a good pre teen book but it can be dark at times! Which I wasn't expecting just based on the cover alone but it is still enjoyable.






  • I loved this book! I have reread it so many times. Connie is such an interesting character! This book is great. I loved all of the characters. They seemed so real! I can't wait to read the next book!
