Aimee Friedman; A Novel Idea

  • Reading level: Young Adult
  • Mass Market Paperback: 256 pages
  • Publisher: Simon Pulse (December 20, 2005)

Required reading has never been so hot.

Once upon a time there was a Brooklyn hipster named Norah. Unlucky in love, and short on extracurriculars for her college apps, Norah decided to start a book group. She knew the perfect locale — a local indie bookstore with a crush-worthy cutie manning the soy latte counter.

When the first meeting arrives, Norah gets a page-turning surprise. The attendees may be bookish, but there are also a few hotties! Most noteworthy: sweet, literary James. He's like a modern Jane Austen hero.... Only, how to snag him?

Ever the romantic heroine, Norah devises a secret plan. And if it works, Norah may just find her "Happily Ever After" love story. The End.

My Review
Cute, spunky and a delightful read! I just love Aimee's writing style. I did feel at times the main character seemed strange and the plot was funny even though it was more funny to me then serious. I enjoyed all the characters, oh gosh they played so well together! They are from all walks of life. It's interesting to see it play out. This is one of those all around great book that any teenaged girl will love. Especially those who are book lovers.
So have I convinced you to read this yet?
