Mehak June 4 2014 1-2 Flipped by Wendelin Van Drannen "Your first impression is your last impression". A statement very familiar and agreeable right? Wrong. If our mind can grow and develop, why not our thoughts and feelings concerning a certain someone. Wendelin Van Drannen did an exceptional job of expressing this in her novel " Flipped ", a story that has many changes in relationships as they evolve. There are many examples of how and why the feelings changed throughout the novel and this thoroughly affects the novel as a whole in many ways. "Some of us get dipped in flat, some in stain, some in gloss... But every once in a while you find someone who's iridescent, and when you do, nothing will ever compare." (p. 96). Bryce's grandfather could see that Juli was iridescent well before Bryce could. Bryce was mostly annoyed with Juli, who attached herself to him when his family moved to her neighborhood just before second grade. Bryce was embarrassed at her clear crush on him and how odd she was. Bryce said, "Flat, glossy, iridescent. What was up with that? Juli Baker had always seemed just plain dusty to me." (p. 97).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
