The end of sophomore year isn't supposed to be so complicated for Ellis; her mother wants to take her comatose father off of life support, Ellis's supposed best friend is oblivious to anything but partying and guys, and Ellis can't see how she could feel more isolated. When she reconnects with an old friend, Cara, who shows her true friendship and the possibility of something more, Ellis is forced to acknowledge that sometimes the hardest changes are the ones you need the most.

37 Things I Love (in no particular order) is an emotional story, and Magoon digs deep into the difficulties of grief and hope. Ellis's character is explored through her fading friendship with her best friend, Abby, who has been treating Ellis poorly for months. When Abby pushes Ellis too much, Ellis is forced to take a hard look at her relationships and the sort of friends she wants in her life. The change in her relationships, especially when it comes to a new relationship with Cara, prepares Ellis for some major life changes and soul-searching. The ties between Ellis and the people in her life--her father, mother, and friends--are strong and nuanced, and help highlight a theme of saying goodbye and embracing new and scary change that is necessary for life to move forward. Magoon's book may be a quick read, but she writes a memorable and affecting story that will take up a lot of room in your head and heart.

37 Things I Love is a very deceiving book. From the cover I expected something light and fun. What I got was a rather serious story that touched on first love, lost friendships, and the death of a loved one. I don't know if maybe my expectations were just set for something completely different or what but I just didn't really care much for 37 Things I Love.

The characters in 37 Things I Love were lacking quite a bit. The main character, Ellis, had very little personality and almost no backbone. She never stood up for herself and she acted like it was her job to just take the crap her friend Abby was dishing out. And Abby was not a friend. She was a Grade A bitch. She made fun of Ellis and their other friend, Colin, constantly. And when Abby did something stupid it was Ellis' fault. Colin was the only one I even remotely liked although he had no backbone either.

The plot didn't seem to go anywhere. Don't get me wrong the book was a quick read but mainly because it was only 224 pages and had short chapters. It was actually pretty dull and kind of predictable. I just didn't see any real change or growth until the end of the book. I expected so much more.

Overall, 37 Things I Love just fell short of my expectations. I really wanted to like it but I couldn't. I would recommend getting this one from your local library if you are interested in reading it.
