Well, this is a book for girls. I say that because we listened to it on tape, and Calvin nearly died during the kissing scene, so I had to promise to not make him listen to this book ever again.
But us girls thought it was fun.
This is a candy book for teens. But everyone needs a little candy, right? Okay, I don't need any candy, but sometimes I need to read something light and easy.
Enthusiasm by Polly Shulman
Ages 12 and up (maybe ten and up if you have a romantically inclined ten year old)
From Amazon (I don't know what the deal is with the question marks)
There is little more likely to exasperate a person of sense than finding herself tied by affection and habit to an Enthusiast.? Julie knows from bitter experience: her best friend, Ashleigh, is an Enthusiast. Ashleigh?s current fancy is also Julie?s own passion, Pride and Prejudice, and the heroine?s quest for True Love. And so Julie finds herself swept along with Ashleigh, dressed in vintage frocks and sneaking into a dance at the local all-boys? prep school. There they discover several likely candidates for True Love, including the handsome and sensitive Parr. And Julie begins to wonder if maybe this obsession of Ashleigh?s isn?t so bad after all.
