This was probably my favorite YA rom-com of last year. Totally charming and funny. Just good clean fun, with plenty of quirkiness to keep it interesting.

I had certain ideas of what this book would be like at first and now that I am through the book I can say that it was nothing like I expected. The main character Hedi is a very likeable girl who is trying to fit into the boarding school she is thrown into, not becuse she is a bad student, but because her parents work there. You quickly see that she not hated, but she isnt invited to any cool parties either. She sits on the fringe, but gets to see everything that happens. But that changes when she makes up an imaginary boyfriend(Ed) and creates him in the virtual world of internet chats and emails. Turns out, her friends are growing more and more attached to the virtual Ed than Heidi realizes. The funniest secnes are in The Litte Leaf, the cafe she helps waitress, and the drama club putting on a new version of Twelfth Night, but making it in the 80's. Overall, the book is really good and the ending seems too quick to me, but its satisfying and really makes you wish for another book to continue the story of Heidi.

Not everyday you pick up a book that's as funky yet fun to read like this book. Could not put it down! If you like realistic fiction with geeky romance, this is the book for you!

After a whole summer away from her friends, Heidi is thrilled for the start of the term and the chance to be one of the gang again. But before she can say "frog girl" Fili has found the only other Goth at the Finch, Ludo is snogging a guy with piercings and peroxide blonde hair. Big Dai isn't even big anymore. After a summer of intensive training he's downright svelte. And dating Henry Kim. Heidi is exactly the same except for her awesome, slightly dodgy looking, new trench coat. It's kind of quirky and it looks exactly like something Mycroft Christie* would wear on Mycroft Christie Investigates while running about with the dashing Jori Song. Heidi is fifteen. She isn't very dashing. She didn't have an exciting, transformative summer. She spent the summer working at The Little Leaf with her crazy boss while admiring her boss' beautiful son Teddy from afar. Heidi is very single. When Ludo assumes Heidi's coat is from a boyfriend instead of the rubbish bin things start spinning out of control. Before Heidi can say OHM EYE GOD the assumption has become a rumor which has run off and become fact.** Which leaves Heidi two options: Fess up and admit she's the same, boring Heidi and say goodbye to her friends. Or she can make a boyfriend who is conveniently far away and solve all her problems. Well, honestly, what would you do? It's not like a whole imaginary person can create that many problems. That is, until he does in My Invisible Boyfriend (2010) by Susie Day. My Invisible Boyfriend is a comedy of errors in the truest sense of the phrase, which is actually appropriate since one of the big plot elements is Heidi's involvement in a school production of Twelfth Night: The Musical (set in the 1980s). Over the course of the story Heidi's made up boyfriend learns secrets, solves problems, and starts talking back to Heidi. This is a funny book that moves really fast. Heidi is almost as adorable as the dashing Mycroft Christie she talks with in her head throughout the story. The other characters, sadly, are less compelling as they verge into one dimension with their EMPHATIC (and capitalized) talking or seemingly random jealousies. Day blends a lot of fun elements together in a recipe for humor if not for the most well-developed plot. The fun premise suffers in the last quarter of the novel as Heidi almost literally flails trying to find out who knows her secret (and has started emailing her as "a real boy") in all the wrong places. The plot is very true to traditional Shakespearean comedies but sadly lacking the voice of a wise fool to balance all the crazy and and a touch more depth to the characters. *Mycroft is a made up character on a made up show (that I sooooooooo wish was real, even with the Horrible Beard and awful dead wife). As far as I can tell he is a cross between The Doctor, Captain Jack Harkness, and Sherlock from the new 21st Century remake. (Am I showing my geek cards by mentioning this?) Mycroft might have been my favorite character in this whole zany story. **This sounds totally improbable as a premise except . . . it actually happened to me once. I have this boxy jacket that used to be fitted. But then I lost some weight and it was too big. And one day a woman at work saw me with it on and asked if it was my boyfriend's. Being an idiot, I said yes before I understood the question. Of course I didn't even have a boyfriend at the time. Not even a made up one.
