I liked this book

Review by Akiva

I thought this was a book for girls, but after I read it, I liked it a lot. It was a hard for Alyssa and I wonder what I would do if I had to choose between something I love (baseball) and something else that is also important.

I sympathize with Alyssa even though I am not getting ready for my bat mitzvah yet. I think anyone will be able to sympathize with her. BEST BOOK EVER!!!!!!!

Good book

Review by MoriLovesBooks

I enjoyed the book. It was pretty interesting, but you could sense what was going to happen. I would recommend this book to anybody who likes to know what happens next in a story.

Awosome Book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Review by QueenBay

Pink Sippers, Bat Mitzvah Blues is an amazing book because it really explains a lot of details. Plus, a lot of it is about friendship. I really enjoyed reading it. It talks about ballet, having a Bat mitzvah, confirmation class, and about Alyssa's sick best friend and her helping her best friend get better. I would recommend this book for anyone who wants to hear about a Bat mitzvah, ballet, and friendship.

Not the Best...

Review by ART0101

It has a lot of unnecessary details and i literally zoned out a few times. i did not finish the book because i didn't find it at all interesting. there's really no suspense or story line. i wouldn't suggest this story for people who like suspense.
