    Who is the Girl made of Cool?

    It has been months since I read such a love story. If this is to have a film adaptation, I would very much like this to be in the Indie films. I love Indie and with the kind of depth and dialogue this book has my cousin in law would flip with excitement.

    This is not your typical boy meets girl, girl and boy and falls in love kind of thing, well ok not right away, there were complications and obstacles. This is a story of a girl named Jayne Holly Wyatt who met Ridley Richardson who listened to his friend Chet Clifford on how to woo this lady thinking she was every other girl out there then confessed that the whole thing was just a front. At first Jayne seems to be the type who wants men with status, good looks and can be easily seduced. She clearly said that she like men with nice suits and money, so when Ridley confess that he neither have any of it she started to get uneasy. But she is not the girl that I thought she was, she is indeed the Girl made of Cool. Witty, independent and can seriously take care of herself when it comes to men. Ridley on the other hand is a thinker, wants to be a Zoologist now then shifts to studying the World History, human behavior and eventually the universe. Ridley got depth and intelligence that most women miss out. He depicts the image of the good guy, too nice to sit back and watch as the woman of his dreams got swept away by his friend. Chet of course is the exact opposite. The Player who talks to his imaginary audience while coming up with schemes on how to help Ridley. A marketing genius, charismatic and egotistical, until he got a dose of his own medicine.

    Jayne was weirded out by Ridley's odd behavior. Chet decides that Jayne will be his number 23 on his 25 on 25 goal. Jayne played a game with Chet. Chet lied mostly about everything. Ridley holds the wanting, the needing and the kissing and settled to being Jayne's friend but Ridley was really inlove.

    I found myself enjoying the games that Chet and Jayne played. I was enthralled on the exchange of dialogues between Jayne and Ridley. It was wonderful and deep. I wasn't surprised at the ending, I knew it's going to happened and what a great ending that was. Alan Fox I look forward to readign the two featured story in this edition. The Girl Made of cool is an unconventional and refreshing read. The characters are fascinating and their personality evolves all through out the book
