Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up—Reading a novel written entirely in emails, tweets, and instant messages might seem daunting at first, but it works here. The format isn't new—Lauren Myracle did it in TTYL (Amulet, 2004), followed by its two sequels, but it is unique and it hasn't entirely caught on...yet. The plot itself is far from groundbreaking—girl (Claire), completely oblivious to the fact that her best guy friend (Will) has a crush on her, tortures him with stories of her crush (JD). Unable to express his feelings, Will concocts an elaborate plan: he pretends to be JD and starts tweeting with Claire under a pseudonym. She totally falls for it until the plan backfires and Claire hates him for tricking her, until she realizes that she has feelings for him. Despite the predictability of the story, this is a solid debut for Rudnick, who seems tuned in to how teenagers behave and what they want. She manages to take a typical story, write it in an atypical manner, and then spin it in such a way that allows readers to overlook the sometimes-confusing format. Perhaps the originality of the style is enough to save this book from becoming another run-of-the-mill teen romance.—Robyn Zaneski, New York Public Library
