fml by Shaun David Hutchinson

There’s more than one way to get the girl in this fun and fast-paced novel about one epic party and a kiss that could change everything.

Tonight’s the night: Simon’s big chance to finally get with Cassie. Cassie, who he’s loved for ages. Cassie, who is newly boyfriend-free. Cassie, who just happens to be throwing the biggest party of the year. Simon’s plan is simple: He’ll go to the party, she’ll fall in love with him, they’ll make out like crazy, and the night will be a complete success.

But things don’t ever go as planned…especially when it comes to Cassie.

In two alternating plotlines, Simon goes after the girl of his dreams and stumbles toward his destiny. It’s one night, one party, and a thousand ways for things to go wrong…but a million ways for them to go right.

When I read the synopsis for FML, and saw that it was told in two alternating plot lines, I was quiet curious.  I have read several stories in which this worked well, such as Pivot-Point by Kasie West, where everything made sense.  In FML, the two plots lines were confusing, because it revolved around the same party, the same situations, just different outcomes and I got lost more than once trying to figure out which plot line I was in.  Simon is your typical geeky guy.  He's had a crush on the popular girl, Cassie, all throughout high school.  It's the end of the year and the whole book takes place the night of the big party at Cassie's house, what happens during that evening, and two different ways it could happen.  Simon is a pretty good guy.  I wasn't crazy about him, but I didn't dislike him either.  He is just obsessed with what he thinks he wants and can't have, convinced that he is in love with Cassie, she's the one, etc.  He spends the entire evening with the help of his friends, trying to get close to her and kiss her.  There were several other characters that I did like, Ben and Coop, who were his best friends, were also gay, and both had great personalities.  Then there was Stella, the new girl that Simon meets.  FML is something that may appeal to teens.  It has its humorous moments, but not a lot of depth.  I didn't dislike it, It just didn't appeal to me, though the humor in this book may appeal to some.  The main character wasn't bad, he just didn't draw me in, and neither did the story.  This is another one of those books that have mixed reviews, and is something that will probably appeal to some and not others, depending on personal taste.
