Goodreads: Love is all you need… or is it? Penny’s about to find out in this wonderful debut.
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. . .
Ope’s Opinion: This is such a wonderful book for young adults to read. There is a little bit of boy drama, but the focus is on girl friends. I really like how the girls in this book put their friends before boys.
The theme in this book of not changing for other people – friends or boys is awesome! They also discovered what they wanted to do as individuals – not following the crowd. It was such a good example of independent girls supporting each other – not talking behind each others back.
I enjoyed this book and would recommend it for any young adult.
Rating: Three ( and a half ) Chairs – I like the book enough to suggest it to a friend or two.
