Flashcards of My Life - Charise Mericle Harper When Emily receives a new journaling project as a gift from a family friend, she begins to fill out the titular "Flashcards of My Life." Through flashcards with themes like "friends," "embarrassment," and "secrets," as well as cartoon-y pictures and other text, Emily describes her world and daily events in her life. While the novel lacks plot, the honesty and genuineness that come through in Emily's feelings about her parents, her little battles with her friends, and her crush make for an engaging read. The book never mentions Emily's age or grade, but her voice is so well done that it doesn't need to; we know that she is twelve or thirteen and in middle school.
