Complicating matters for Mitch is the fact that his brother Stuart is engaged to the T.O.D., his younger sister is in a crisis, his older sister wants him to get married, his mother nags him at every turn, and his father, the firm's senior partner, is incommunicado on a never-ending golfing holiday. As for Kate, besides being homeless and jobless, she's covering up for the office vamp's affair with a German ski instructor and being pestered by her ex, first to move back in, then to provide a "recommendation" for him as a boyfriend to a ditzy supermodel whose idea of foreign food is the Olive Garden.
It never ceases to amaze me how well a story can be told in this format. I loved THE BOY NEXT DOOR for its novelty, and BOY MEETS GIRL delivers more of the same.Read more ›
Cabot has done it again. I was doubtful that BOY MEETS GIRL would be able to compare to THE BOY NEXT DOOR, but I was wrong. BOY MEETS GIRL is just as good, if not better than it's prequel. The commentary is snappy and exciting, and the characters are funnier than ever. While the main characters are different than those featured in THE BOY NEXT DOOR, Mel Fuller (the main character in the prequel) is mentioned numerous times, and you are able to see what's happened in her life since the last book. Overall this was a fantastic book. I hope Cabot decides to write a third addition to this series, as I'd like to follow the character's lives even more. All fans of Cabot will be deeply impressed with this new work of literature, and be left craving more. A must-have.
That being said - was anyone else bothered by the format? I did not realize there was no dialogue before I read it, and that it's only emails, voice mails, etc. I think it's a cute way of writing, and memorable, but I found it hard to get into the romance between Katie and Mitch since it was always told after the fact. I couldn't be happy for them since I never really saw any interaction between them.
I have read other Meg Cabot books and they are not written this way, thankfully. She is a good writer and I really enjoyed "Size 12 Is Not Fat."
To anyone picking up "Boy Meets Girl," it's a good book but beware of the format.
In this book, the unlikable characters take over the plot. The heroine, Kate, is homeless, broke and eventually jobless -- she's lovely but her situation is not a barrel of laughs. Her love life is kind of a shambles. You want the best for her, but the turn in her fortunes is slow to arrive. It's a fun book, but not super fun.

The entire Book is written in the format of emails. That is too much repetition for me especially when you have to listen to it by audio like I do . Read morePublished 3 months ago by M L Stockwell

A very light read. Not much depth and kind of cliche. An ABC Family original movie in book form. I make fun of them, but I always watch them. A guilty pleasure of sorts.Published 11 months ago by Karina
I didn't anticipate I would love this book, but I wanted some easy light reading so I delved in anyway. It's pretty formulaic chick lit. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Brianda
