Koss, Amy Goldman. Gossip times three

Koss, Amy Goldman. Gossip times three. Puffin, 2003 [0-14-240295-8]
Abby, Bess, and Cristy are in Junior High and are best friends. Abby has always liked Zach but then one day Bess says, "Zach's cute." It sends the close friendship into a whirlwind. No only do we have the three best friends feuding, but also, they are all dealing with their single-parent moms' dating habits. Koss as usual captures the feel for junior high friendships but this book drove me crazy. It is written as a writing project and there are constantly three (numbered) plot twists appearing in the book (I guess to go with the title.) Sometimes, they are options and the reader is asked to choose which the correct one. I found this 170 page book to be agony to finish. Maybe girls will like it, but it made me nuts.
