I'm surprised that the word "cynical" doesn't appear in the book description, because it sure shows up a lot in the actual book. I've never been one to throw books on the ground and stomp on them or anything (except at the end of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince), but I swear I was ready to do so if I read the word "cynical" one more time. I get it. Piper is cynical. But does that mean she needs to tell us constantly that she's cynical? Does that mean that other people need to continuously remind us about how cynical she is? Did you know that Piper is cynical?! Because I apparently didn't and needed to be reminded every five pages.Now that my rant is over, I can assure you that Love? Maybe really isn't so bad, once you get past the overuse of that word. The story is sweet and Piper really isn't as pessimistic as the author would apparently like you to believe. I think that's what bothered me the most about the overuse of the aforementioned word: we're constantly being told how ------- she is, but she really is a caring individual and a good friend who just maybe doesn't believe that everyone is destined to fall madly in love. She rarely puts herself above others, and it is that selflessness (which I think would be hard to find in most cynics) that helps her to develop in other areas throughout the novel.I also loved how "clean" this story was, and that no one was really made out to be a villain (except maybe Stuart, but I get that). No one is having horribly meaningless and unnecessary-to-the-plot-line sex. No one is swearing up a storm because so-and-so doesn't love them. And most of all, no one, especially not Piper, is walking around putting people down just because things don't work out the way they'd hoped. And it's not as if the characters are all having happy, hunky-dory lives, either. Things are happening, people are stressing out, and I know I would have stooped to much lower levels under the duress some of the characters face. I think all of the characters (except Stuart) are class acts, and it's truly refreshing to read a story like that. I'd feel comfortable recommending Love? Maybe to teens and even pre-teens who want to read something "older," without reservation.

Underrated. That is the adjective that I decided best fits this novel. It deserves way more attention than it has gotten. I really enjoyed this story! Mostly because I loved the main character. And all the supporting characters. And all the characters that were mentioned for about two seconds. Everything about this book is just really likable. It is one of those books that you feel good reading, that you want to keep reading because the environment is like a hug. Even when things aren't so perfect for the characters, there is a warm, cozy place to retreat to. Piper was born on Valentine's Day, but she'd be the first to tell you that it means absolutely nothing. On a sliding spectrum, she'd be closer to cynic than romantic. But when her best friend's heart gets broken (again - more proof that boys are trouble) she finds that according to the unwritten best friend code, she has to go along with the plan to make everything better. Even if that means finding a date for Valentine's Day...Anyone who likes YA contemporaries is sure to like this book. It has a great mix of feel good with real life and a pinch of issues to form a most delectable concoction! Oh wait, did I mention like a third of the book takes places in the most awesome sounding candy shop? This book isn't just cuddly- it's sweet! (But maybe that's just because I had to buy a bar of chocolate to continue reading...)But seriously, this novel is a great read. Perfectly paced and enjoyable, but not fake. The story is light, sure, but there are also darker undertones of divorce, depression and overall heartbreak. I would definitely recommend it.P.S: Note to Charlie - I do all the voices! (That is in no way sexual.... you'd get it if you read it. Now you want to know, don't you!)

I am a teenage girl so the stories plot did interest me and it was the first book I read in my barnes and noble order. To make my review shorter and straight forward I will say that there was zero character development with Piper, the story had little to do about the popular guy and their "relationship" and I was so bored I couldn't help but skim through some pages BECAUSE IT WAS THAT BORING. One more thing the authors writing was something that a 4th grader could produce.

(Spoiler included) This book was not very good! It was slow, boring, and had a lack of drama. I thought this would be a romance but there was hardly any love. THE BOOK WAS WAY TOO SLOW! Although the characters were much older, it seemed like the characters were in 5th grade because their was no cursing or even kissing!! It was also very very predictable... i guessed that charlie was piper's secret and that they would end up together in the end. I am 13 but i thought this was light and boring. I would maybe reccomend it to a 10 year old looking to read an age appropriate coming-of-age novel. Sorry for the hate but that is my opinion.

This book is good it is really interesting the title doesn’t look very exciting but once you read it is a very good book. It is about a girl that has a huge crush on this boy and is trying to get a boyfriend. Her friend thinks it’s stupid she says that she should start worrying about school instead of worrying of getting a boyfriend.But she keeps saying that a boyfriend is more important to her than education. I sort of liked this book it was good it wasn’t what I thought it would’ve been I thought it was going to be about something else instead of a crush I thought it was going to be about someone falling in love not getting in love.

This was a good read. I read it when i was ten, eleven, or twelve though. Now that im older, if i reread it i might have a different opinion about how good it was. This book suits younger readers. Not exsactly for teenagers. Thanks! -bookworm14

I think this book was marvelous! I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars because it was boring in the beginning. It was giving general information about the main character, piper. She lives with her mom and two younger siblings,  Don and Lucy, her parents split up at age 7, her crushes name is Ben Donovan, she is in high school and her best friends are Claire, Jillian, and Charlie. The book had no surprises or drama going on at that point in the book. I just wish it had a little bit more excitement. Regardless, the book was excellent. I could not put it down after the first few chapters. See, piper starts to get surprise gifts in her locker, and naturally assumes that it was Jillian. Although to my surprise it wasn't her who sent them because she doesn't know piper’s locker combination. In fact it was (SPOILER ALERT) Charlie. Which I didn't see coming but know that I think of it, the book really gives hints to the reader about this up until this point. I also liked that this book was a romantic story. This is because I love romantic stories. It is really based of a girl who doesn't believe in love because of her dad walking out on her family and how it affected her mom. Then learns that love does exists in life. Which later in the book this makes her realizes that she really does like Charlie and not Ben. Anyway this is why I think it is a great read and why I only gave it four stars.

It was worth the money I swear. I didnt read it on the nook. I read it hardcover. But when I tell you that it is worth the $8 and some odd cents , I am NOT lying!!!!!!!!!!! Would you like to be my friend? I assume you are about 12 or 13 since you want to read this book. Reply to Cate

The main character of this book is Piper Paisley. Piper has three friends, Claire, Jillian, and Charlie. Piper’s problem is her birthday is on Valentines Day, so her friends think she is so romantic. They also think she needs a boyfriend. She said she wasn’t ready for love but Claire and Jillian won’t stop bugging her. Then she falls in love with the most popular boy in school. Her friends are exited about that and are finally happy with her. I liked this book because it is about someone’s life and the author did a really great job. I recommend this amazing book to 4th and 5th graders because sometimes it’s a little hard to understand but it’s a good book. It is a wonderful book and hope you enjoy it soon!!
