i picked up this book at a random store thinking that the title was promising and it ended up being one of the BEST books i've ever read. Kaitlin's story can be related to a modern day romeo and juliet, only romeo doesn't know who the real juliet is. After her father is sent to prison for 'killing' the father of Bram Crutchfield, Kait's life is turned upside down. It only gets worse when her mother sends her to the school of the family who sentenced her father to prison. Kait and bram Crutchfield form a bond stronger than anything she ever imagined, but the lies and hatred of their familys' pasts keep them apart. Kait is drawn deeper and deeper into a web of lies to bring herself closer to the truth and to bring a family feud over a hundred years old to an end. This book is amazing and i strongly recommend it=]

I'm 14 years old and I don't enjoy reading. In my eighth grade honors english class we read this book as an intro to Romeo and Juliet. I could not have asked for a better reading assignment. I read it in two days, and thats a miracle for me. Even the boys in my class enjoyed it. By far the best book I have ever read.

The novel, Scribbler of Dreams by Mary E. Pearson encompasses the theme of holding a grudge is like holding ice, you become numb. In the beginning, Kaitlyn Malone, struggles with living/surviving her senior year at Twin Oaks, the highschool she currently attends. Her family, the Malones, hold a hatred filled grudge against the Crutchfield family because of Bram's father's death, and Kaitlyn's in jail. Throughout the middle she preservers through deciding what to do about her secret identity as Kaitlyn Hampton and her love for Bram Crutchfield. She also fights to find herself and her family because her father is in jail. Her love for Bram makes her look underneath someone's exterior and find the interior because that's what really matters in a person, however much you hate their family. By the end she has learned that love is a very powerful thing, and it helped with her family and the Crutchfield family age-old grudge. 223/223

Despite her family's long feud with the Crutchfields, seventeen-year-old Kaitlin falls in love with Bram Crutchfield and weaves a tangled web of deception to conceal her identity from him.

I see a Parabel in it. Pride and Predjudice wrapped in a story for young adults. Not everything is right, only because our family or other people say it`s right. In the end it was a little overdramatic, but the message came across.I liked the adoration of Jenna Fox much better.

Modern day Romeo and Juliet:You know the story. Two families have hated each other all their lives, and continue the tradition by raising their children to hate each other. However, the children meet, not knowing the other is their enemy, and fall in love. It's a fresh spin on it- Kait starts a new school and feeling overwhelmed, spends her time writing in her journal. But who should she meet but a boy named Bram who also likes to spend his time in the shade, quietly drawing. The two are drawn to each other and all is going well until Kait finds out who he really is. Can their love overcome their family history? You'll have to read to find out! Overall it's a cute story, and though I don't expect one, I'd love to see a sequel. There are a lot of loose ends still laying around when the story finishes and I'd like to see what else could happen in Kait and Bram's lives.

Another Romeo and Juliet. But I can't help it! I'm such a sucker for these kinds of books!

A modern retelling of Romeo & Juliet. Pearson's book was a quick read, though lack the real heartbreak found in the play that inspired her novel. It was all right, but nothing that I'd go out of my way to read again.

I first read this book in sixth grade. Our teachers had donated books to their students as a Christmas present. I had arrived late that day, and the only book left to choose from was this. So I went with it. I ended up falling in love with the story and characters. Ever since then, I've read this book over ten times. If I were to read it today, I would still find it beautiful.

I agree with a previous review about this being a teenage harlequin. Nothing is more attractive then when one of the characters finds out that they are distantly related to their love interest yet pursues them anyway. I do not like the style in which the story was written, and the families hatred was portrayed in childish and annoying manner.

I read this in 5th grade and forgot the title. All I remembered of the title was "Scribble" I recall really enjoying this book. Now that I'm in high school, I wonder if I'll like it as much. Going to read it again (: Highly recommend.
