As far as the characters go, they grew on me. Initially, I could not imagine someone taking Wyatt up on his offer to be a social experiment, but after considering Lucy Jo's dreams and the extent of her devastation, it seemed plausible. I mean what did she have to loose? Her character really changed as the story progressed, but not as much as Wyatt's. I enjoyed reading his scenes. His stubbornness, his denial, and his pride made him an interesting character. My favorite character by far was Eloise, Lucy's friend. Of all the characters in the book, she was the most real and down-to-Earth, (with the exception of Lucy's mother). Overall, most of the characters were interesting and memorable
The cons...The only issue I had while reading came from too many POV's. There were several characters in the story who's point of view really contributed to the story.Read more ›
OK, so the author borrows directly from My Fair Lady for the plot of her book. But it's really an enjoyable story. So there definitely is some predictability here. But Lucy Jo is a character with a lot of heart, and passion for what she loves best. Nearly all of these characters are a lot more three-dimensional than those in Clark previous novel, Because She Can. There are characters in the book, especially Wyatt and his best friend, who are undeniably flawed, but that makes them all the more real. Wyatt's ex girlfriend is a bit of a caricature, but other than that, I enjoyed reading about these people.
Nonetheless, there are a few aspects of the story that had me raising my eyebrows in disbelief (Lucy's transformation, especially her weight loss, is a little too rapid to be believable). Wyatt is in his mid-thirties, but he sure doesn't act that way most of the time. And the ending of the book isn't really an ending, as such. It just stops, without truly wrapping things up. But other than that, the story is fast paced, and extremely lively. It's cute, it's fun, and it's an engaging way to pass time. The plot just needs a little more work.
Enjoy the Summer! Enjoy the read!
