Boring and Immature
My book club selected this book to read for our August '08 meeting. The only reason that I finished the book was because I didn't want to let the club down. The first two-thirds of the book seem like something written to appeal to my sixth grade students. The last third is only marginally better and does not make the book worth reading overall.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The title is daunting, this book has mild barly there humor, a main factor that draws me into books. Lindsey was just an average character, living an average life with her grandmother and everything is so average you just stop caring. I do agree with another reviewer, I thought as well that Lindsey was making up her romance with Micheal and I was so surprised when I found out that he didn't have 'a girlfriend on the side.' If you like China, pick up The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan, if you like reading about something that can be found on a myspace.com, pick up The Dim Sum of All Things.Was this review helpful?

when i read the summary i was under the impression that this would be a great book. however by the first half of the book, i was increasingly disappointed. Lindsey, the protagonist, is a little on the pathetic side bordering on weird, especially after she stalks her love interest Michael. there was a point when i wondered if the 'chemistry' between her and Michael was all in her head. although there were two or three good moments, it wasn't enough to help the reader connect and get into the story. for those who is willing to read this novel, i believe the second half was a little better.Was this review helpful?
