    Short but Cute

    At the young age of seventeen, Kate DelVecchio is determined to make a million dollars before she turns twenty. And only after this has been completed will she let herself think about starting a relationship or a family she doesn¿t want to end up like her mother. However, Kate somehow becomes the hottest guy in school¿s date to the sports banquet, to her surprise and that of the entire school. No one understands how Kate was able to hook such a hottie, but they figure she must¿ve don¿t something right so they start coming to her for advice on how to hook their own hotties ¿ for a fee of course. And thus Kate finds herself developing a Six-Point Plan for her new business and even closer to her goal. But when it comes to hotties, will Kate follow her own advice? How to Hook a Hottie was a cute, short, and romantic book. I will admit I didn¿t really like Kate¿s character towards the beginning of the novel, mostly because she was way too focused on cash, but as the story progressed, she grew on me. I especially liked how she came through in the end. I thought it was funny how Kate didn¿t realize what she really wanted (not her life plan) even when it was right in front of her, and I was glad that she wised up. My favorite part of this novel, though, was the hottie-hooking tips. Some of them were pretty random, and I have yet to test their effectiveness, but they did add humor to the story. All this made How to Hook a Hottie a very enjoyable story. If you¿re looking for a fast and fun read, I recommend How to Hook a Hottie. I look forward to reading Tina Ferraro¿s other novel, Top Ten Uses for an Unworn Prom Dress, as well as her upcoming one, The ABC¿s of Kissing Boys.

    Fun and Clever Page-Turner

    Kate is ambitious. She has plans and goals and hottie-hooking hexagons. She wants to become a millionaire before she reaches twenty (twenty-five, at the maximum), but her parents have different plans for her. Her mom -- who's in Germany, disconnected from Kate's life -- wants her to go to college and get some degrees. But Kate has other plans -- and they don't involve more school. Now, to prove she'll be able to make it in the real world, she has to raise five thousand dollars on her own. And what better way than to come up with a get-rich-quick scheme? This book is fun and clever, kept me turning pages to reach the satisfying end. I'm not a fan of 'teenager-ish' writing, but other than that, I recommend this book for a fun, quick read with lots of heart behind it.

    A reviewer

    I've only read an excerpt, because I liked her previous book, but... I think this book will be great. The story is about a girl who wishes to be a millionaire by the time she's twenty, and she works odd jobs to make her money. After the most popular guy in school asks her to a banquet, a girl starts to ask her how she did it, and that leads to her asking Kate 'our main character' for help on hooking a hottie- thus, the title. Thats all I know so far, but I'm looking to find out.
