Yeah, my friend did a book report on it in the 7th grade and I thought I just had to read it b/c it looked so good. And it turned out I was right. The book is very realistic and the characters are great too.
My only problem was the sequels - they did not live up to my expectations. This is partly due to the change in main characters in the second book and the weird plot in the third (I just didn't like some of the character's actions, but hey, that's just me!).
So, bottom line is the first book is really great, but don't expect too much from the 2nd and 3rd.
