Book Review: The Book of Luke

Title: The Book of Luke
Author: Jenny O'Connell
Genre: YA Commercial Fiction
Rating: C-

140-Character Summary: Nice girl Emily Abbott is going to try, with the help of her friends, to not be so nice any more. And not-nice-guy, Luke, is her guinea pig.

First 140 Characters: "My parents waited in the cab with TJ while Sean and I stood together on our front walk. It was the same front walk where we'd shared..."

14(1)-Character Review: Nothing ground-breaking with the plot or character development--pretty standard YA stuff--but not a bad read per se. Just an okay, NICE book.

[Sorry, I couldn't get it down to 140 exactly.]

Hogwarts Challenge Notes: Charms... Emily goes from nice to mean (and Luke does some changing), but then she realizes her understanding of nice and mean were what needed changing.
