That is, until her boyfriend breaks up wih her and she moves back to Boston, where she hadn't been in 3 years, and her dad stays in Chicago instead of moving back with her. Now after years of being the nice girl with her mothers Etiquette lessons, Emily decides to be not-so-nice. Her two old best friends, Josie and Lucy, and her quickly reunite and Emily learns that Luke, the boy nobody noticed, became Luke, the gorgeous senior, king of the school, cheated on Josie while he thought she was away in the Bahamas. Even more, he broke up with her by email! So as Emily, Josie, and Lucy form a plan to get back at Luke, Emily falls for him. Will Emily sacrifice her best friends to be with Luke, or sacrifice Luke to stay friends with Josie and Lucy?
I laughed so much while reading this book. It really is very funny. You get into the book since the first page, and I just couldn`t put it down. The only reason why I put four stars is because I think the ending was really, like, fast-pacing. I mean, Emily (the protagonist of the book) has this huge problem, and the book tells you how this problem develops, and you are sooo into it, and then: it resolves. Very fast. I mean, it makes you think that the author had to finish the book quickly, and resolved the problems in like, 9 pages, and its a 291 page-book.
Despite this, it is a VERY good book. For me, it was wonderful how it showed you the transformation of a girl who was nice, and became a girl who was... a bitch. But a lovable bitch. And I had enormous fun reading the things that guys do we cant understand, and the tips written before the chapters.
In conclusion: this book is awesome: if you can, buy it.
The author doese great with realating to teen heart break. Us girls CAN be a little crazy when it comes to guys. But on a diffrent note, The Book Of Luke is a hilarious heart worming story of first love, life, moving on, and redeption. It also helps paint a fine line on reacting and overreacting to a situation. Sometimes it got boring but come on, what book dosent sometimes. I recomend to any reader looking for a tradinal story of love and friendship.
Once she gets home, she meets up with her two best friends and the three take it upon themselves to write a dating guide for boys. When it's decided that Emily will have to test the guide on fellow senior, Luke Preston, the real fun begins.
Many aspects of this novel unfold quite predictably. However, the characters are well-written and ultimately sympathetic. Emily finds herself between the proverbial "rock and hard place" when she feels she must choose between her friends and a boy and it's interesting to hear her thought process throughout.
My only complaint is that the set-up was a little long-winded and then the conclusion turned into a bit of a "lightbulb" moment for Emily. However, it wasn't all mush and you can certainly tell that lessons were learned.
This is a great read for anyone who's ever tried to change someone else. It's a good reminder that, in trying, you may actually only be changing yourself - for the better or the worse.
