The Lonely Hearts Club by Elizabeth Eulberg


Summary:

Penny is sick of boys and sick of dating. So she vows: no more. It's a personal choice. . .and, of course, soon everyone wants to know about it. And a few other girls are inspired. A movement is born: The Lonely Hearts Club (named after the band from Sgt. Pepper). Penny is suddenly known for her nondating ways . . . which is too bad, because there's this certain boy she can't help but like. . . .

Review:

When I first heard about this book I was couldn't wait to read it. Though, then I read some really negative reviews about it and some that put The Lonely Hearts Club in a good light. So when I ended up receiving this in the mail, I had no clue what to think. Would I love like I hoped I would? Would I hate it like some others did? Or would it just be a blah type of book? Luckily, The Lonely Hearts Club turned out to be one of the funniest and cutest books I've read this year!

There are so many great things going for this novel. For one, Elizabeth Eulberg has created a cast of diverse characters in this novel ranging form the popular girl to the jock girl to just the smart and semi snarky making this a novel that I think almost every girl could find someone to relate to in a little or big way. Even though I find it so hard to pick a favorite because I adored almost all the characters, my personal favorite would probably be a tie between Penny, the main character, and her best friends Tracy and Diane. All three where hilarious, good hearted and just all people that would be a blast to hang around if there existed in real life , leaving it to be so hard not to root for them. Oh, and Ryan was so adorable! But that's all I'll say about that topic.
Further more, I loved the premise of this novel even if I did find it to be a bit cheesy at times. Since, it was original and had a fantastic message! Plus, I loved all The Beatles references that were made since it brought the originality level even higher in my opinion. And the ending was so cute!

Overall, The Lonely Hearts Club is a novel that every girl out there should read! Though, I'll have to warn you that you'll probably be wanting to listen to all The Beatle songs mentioned in this when your done like I was. :)

Also, I want to make a point in suggesting this novel to fans of Jackson Pearce's As You Wish because for some reason this novel had the same kind of feel that Jackson's debut did in my opinion!
 
Grade: A+
