Teen review: Romance

Boy Meets Girl
by Meg Cabot
383 pages
Stand-alone teen romance
Suggested for: high school and up

Reviewed by Kayla, grade 10

Kate Mackenzie is down on her luck. She just moved out of her apartment that she shared with her long-term boyfriend who didn’t want to commit. So she had to move in with her best friend--and her best friend’s husband--which is a nightmare. Plus, her boss hates her and is trying to make her fire one of the most popular employees in their culinary section. To top it all off, she now has to meet with a lawyer she despises, or at least thinks she does, to give a deposition.

This book was unique in the way that it was written--as a series of emails, texts, and instant messages between the main characters. It is mainly told from the point of view of Kate Mackenzie but you can see other people’s perspectives through their strongly worded emails and such. I really like the way Meg Cabot writes: Her characters are easy to relate to because they are just normal people. She uses quite a bit of humor, which is what I love about her books also. Over all, I would definitely recommend this book to readers due to its easiness to get through, and its great characters.

I rate this book a 5.
