Mary Lou Finney grudgingly begins writing a journal as an assignment for school -- would anything interesting ever happen to her? What follows is the story of a wildly chaotic and romantic summer. How could she have known about Carl Ray and the little black car? Or what would happen on Booger Hill? Or about the permanently pink Alex Cheevy? Mary Lou's tale is filled with hilarious observations on love, death, and the confusing mechanics of holding hands.


Sharon Creech's new fans will be thrilled to recognize Mary Lou Finney and her infamous summer journal from their appearance in Walk Two Moons. Here is the very journal that began the inquiry into whether kisses taste like chicken!

Summary

nimrahmajid Jun 09, 2012

this book is told as a summer journal begrudgingly started as an English assignment. Mary Lou, 13, wonders if kisses with boys really taste like chicken; if her best friend will ever shut up about her new boyfriend; and how her visiting cousin, Carl Ray, can be such a silent clod, especially when someone has anonymously given him $5000. Later, when he is in a coma following a car accident, she rereads her journal and wonders how she could have been so unseeing. Mary Lou is a typical teen whose acquaintance with the sadder parts of life is cushioned by a warm and energetic family.
