In my last post, I had a typo which said: I'm not going to read Janette Rallison's How to Take the Ex out of Ex-boyfriend, when what I meant to write was I'm now going to read Janette Rallison's How to Take the Ex out of Ex-boyfriend. Needless to say, my typo was a little embarrassing.
Well, embarrassing moments are common for Giovanna in this book. In fact, those embarrassing moments were quite comical. I really enjoyed this book and found Giovanna to be very likeable, the kind of character you want to root for.
When Giovanna's twin brother runs for student council president, Giovanna's boyfriend campaigns for the opponent. Giovanna then breaks up with him, and soonafter regrets her decision. She wants to get back together with him, but still help her brother win the election. There's a little twist at the end that makes for a surprising ending. I recommend this book; it's a fun read. And I'm finding that I really enjoy YA books. When I finish reading the Whitney-nominated titles, I'm going to find some more Janette Rallison and Shannon Hale books to read. I think I just found a whole new, fun genre that I've been overlooking for a long time. Who says YA books have to be for young adults?
I'm not going to tell you which book I'm now going to read lest I make another embarassing typo.
