Overview

All You Need Is Love (Principles of Love Series #4) by Emily Franklin

After an unbelievable semester in London, Love Bukowski is back at Hadley Hall, suffering from major Euro-withdrawal and an acute longing for her Brit boyfriend. But she had to make a sudden departure from London Academy of Drama and Music to be by her Aunt Mable's side while she fights breast cancer.

As far as long-distance romance goes, let's just say London is not calling. But her ex, Jacob, has popped back into her life. Meanwhile, her dad claims she's picked up some pretty obnoxious habits across the pond, and her Aunt Mable is dropping more hints than ever about her mystery mother's identity. Looks like spring semester may still have a few more surprises to spring on her.

Love Bukowski is back in the United States after a semester in London at the London Academy of Drama and Music.

She had to leave her Brit boyfriend, who, when she gets home to the US, doesn't want to seem to talk to her, until he announces that he's coming for a visit. She had to leave London to be at her Aunt Mable's side because she is fighting breast cancer. She is suffering from major Europe-withdrawals and it turns out that her dad has a new girlfriend -- and he tells her that she picked up some bad habits while in Europe.

As if that isn't bad enough, Love's ex-boyfriend, Jacob, has become super-popular while she was gone!

This book is slow in many parts but you have to feel kind of sorry for Love, who had to leave everything that she loved in London behind. Plus, when she gets back, her Aunt Mable seems to be doing pretty well at first, but then tragedy strikes. It seems like when Love comes back to the US, everything is different then when she left, so it's kind of like culture shock for her, even though the US is her home. This is a cute but sometimes slow read.

My reason for picking All You Need Is Love by Emily Franklin off the shelf was because of the title. I had no idea who Emily Franklin was or what this book would even be about. But the author titled the book as a famous song, which interested me, and most likely other readers as well. Not knowing what to expect from an author I¿d never heard of, I began reading. My first thoughts on All You Need Is Love were that the plot was something that most teenagers would be able to relate to. Not necessarily departing from London to go care for a sick aunt while having no clue who your mother is, but being overwhelmed by family, relationships, school, and begging for summer to come. As I continued reading the book, I realized how confused I was about the characters and a lot of the story. I hadn¿t realized that this is the fourth book in the Principles of Love series. It would have been a lot easier to understand if I had read the other books in the series before it. But as an individual book in general, I thought the characters were very believable. Aunt Mable was someone that I could talk to about anything and get an honest answer from. Lindsay is the mean girl I want nothing to do with and Jacob is Mr. Popularity that everyone has a crush on. All of the characters in the book were very real and understandable. All except the main character, Love. To me, she wasn¿t really someone I could relate to that well. Although the author filled us in on her thoughts and feelings throughout the entire story, I just didn¿t seem to get her. All You Need Is Love was not one of my favorite books, but considering the fact that I jumped into the middle of a series made me want to read the rest of the Principles of Love series and give this book another chance. But overall, this book in particular was just okay.

This is the 4th book in the Principles of Love series and it's just as good as the others, even though parts are sad. Love comes back from London and tries to help her aunt fight breast cancer. The best part about these books is how real they are. I CAN'T WAIT FOR BOOK 5!

More info on Love's mother is revealed, and Chris is always interesting. But it felt as if there were multiple ideas that the writer never fully developed, she jumped from idea to idea, and ignored the idea after the initial introduction. One part of the end was basically a repeat of the third book, which made me feel as if I was ripped off. A book to get at the library, or to buy reduced or from a yard sale, not worth the $10
