It's raining and you didn't think ahead and get an umbrella. Um, Emily, why didn't you bring one??
Since you're the guy you should open the door for me. What happened to feeling good about womens' rights and being proud of what we're able to do today?
You can't eat my fries. Okay, yeah, he's a guy and he's probably a mooch, but geez. It's fries not diamonds.
If you say you're going to call me, then call me. Yeah, he's your boyfriend and you like the guy, but what's with being so needy? If he doesn't care enough about the relationship to call, why should you care?
You can't go tell your friends that you "felt up" a girl. It's rude. As pointed out in the book, if you can tell your friends that you kissed him why can't he tell his friends that he felt you up? It's the same thing.
When I started reading, I was thinking, "You go girl! Show them boys!" By the middle of the book I was thinking, "My God get over yourself! You're his girlfriend not the Queen of England!" She started dating Luke and he took her to a basketball game for her birthday. I'm not big into sports, so I can understand why that would be a downer. But why does it upset you that his dad's business has year-round seats? Just because he didn't buy them doesn't mean he doesn't care. And, oh my gosh how could he not think to buy a banner and have it hang from the nose-bleed seats to wish you a happy birthday. He has as good of a part-time job as you do. Just because he's a guy doesn't mean he has an un-ending amount of money. And Emily? Yes, you can offer to pay. it may be your birthday, but it's still nice.
By the time I finished- aka skimmed the last thirty pages -the book I was so disappointed in Emily that I almost applauded Luke. If a guy decided to change me like she tried to change Luke, I would be so pissed. If you don't like the way guys act, then stop dating them! You already know guys suck, then why think you can change them just because you wrote a book about how to behave? Geez.
Save yourself the disappointment. Don't read this book!
When nice girl Emily Abbot's family moves from Chicago back to Boston in the middle of her senior year, Emily and her two best friends come up with a plan that is not so nice. It's a project for their class time capsule, but it won't be the typical scrapbook or mix CD. They'll write a handbook for guys about girls. And who better to test out their theories on than arrogant Luke Preston? Emily, the three friends decide, will be the perfect person to try it out and report back. After all, Luke would never suspect the nice little Emily he knew way back when...But Emily's not what she used to be.
Before she knows it, however, the experiment has gone horribly wrong. Wrong in that Emily finds herself falling head over heels for her experiment!
THE BOOK OF LUKE is a funny, original story guaranteed to have readers fascinated from first page to last! This fresh, honest novel is full of amazing characters and excellent writing. Jenny O'Connell is a smart, talented author; I'm really looking forward to seeing what she writes next! This is contemporary fiction at its best; readers will not be disappointed.

Emily's family informs her that they are moving back to Boston where they origanly moved from. Emily's dad, however, has decided to stay to "think about some things". If this isn't bad enough, Emily's all-star boyfriend broke up with her THE DAY SHE WAS MOVING! So... now Emily is back in private school in Boston. Everything is the same. Her friends haven't changed and everyone still loves the lovable Emily Abbott. When asked about the past three years since she was gone, her friends (Josie and Lucy) tell her not much happened. Not much excpet that Josie's ex-boyfriend was caught cheating on her over christmas-break and broke up with her through email!
The Senior project is due for the traditional senior-time-capsul-project. The girls decide to make a book for boys in the future telling them what they are doing wrong and how to fix it to get a girl. The girls (mainly Lucy and Josie that is) decide that they need to test their theory. They force Emily into making Luke Preston, the hottest guy in school who also happens to be the one who broke it off with Josie, fall in love with her and then breaking his sorry little heart. Too bad Emily ends up falling for her "experiement" instead of wanting to crush him. It also happens that Luke kind of always had a thing for her too.
Emily has to keep the relationship a secret and the whole story takes you along with her little web of lies. Now all she has to do is work her way out of them!
I rated the story five stars because i instintly fell in love with it although sometimes Emily annoys me. Well written, had me on the edge of my seat. JUST READ IT! The worst that will happen is that you don't like it (yea right!) and you can put it down!
Hope you enjoyed my review and I didn't give TOO much away! Check out all my other reviews! =]
