Jenna's birthday celebration marks a turning point for her. On the down side, her parents give her an ugly family heirloom pendant instead of her desired gift certificate. But on the upside, her waiter is Luke who is absolutely adorable. Jenna immediately falls in love. When she meets him again at school she learns that he is an angel who was sent to protect her at this time of equinox when something evil is coming for her. Then Adam shows up. It quickly becomes clear that he is the evil that Luke was talking about. He kidnaps David and turns into a wolf or a crow. He demands that Jenna give him the ugly necklace.
Along with this rivalry and the danger is the community theater's production of Fiddler on the Roof with teenage actors. Jenna winds up doing costumes despite the fact that she has no experience or skills. Adam and Luke both wind up with main roles. Jenna's former friend who dumped her for the popular crowd is cast as the lead and immediately makes a play for both boys. One running joke through the book is that the director can't remember anyone's name and constantly calls everyone by some similar name.
Another running joke is that Jared is constantly talking about the documentaries he and father make for the local cable access channel. They have titles like Fowl Friends: Birds Who Give a Hoot. They give Jared a chance to be a know-it-all.
I liked the characters in this story especially Jenna. She was kind-hearted and loyal. She accepted her family's and friends foibles as though they were normal. I liked that she was klutzy and constantly having injuries in Phy Ed. which she treated as normal. I liked her self-deprecating humor.
This was an enjoyable story that middle graders and young adults should like. The humor is what stands out. Both the romance plot and the plot about the pendant seem to take a backseat to it.
My Totally Awkward Supernatural Crush is a parody of the fads going around in paranormal romance. It's very obvious from the first page that this book will poke fun at some of the more popular books that we've all come to know. Whether we loved them or not, it's not difficult to see why some of these themes and plot points are ridiculous when they are put together in this story. The plot felt very scattered, but I think that instability was part of the point the author wanted to make. It's a good novel, but a little immature in certain parts to truly meet my tastes. I went a bit out of my comfort zone for this one.
I liked the characters, and found them awfully amusing, but there was no deep connection between us. In fact, there were several points where Jenna (the main character) made me scratch my head. Her over-the-top antics were a bit annoying. Hers is very much an exaggeration of the pre-teen mind. She reminded me a lot of my step-sister, which is probably why I wanted to kick her sometimes. I didn't really see why Luke was all that great. There was a great big "Why?" hanging over my head for most of the novel. The banter between the characters in this story is pretty funny, though. David had to be my favorite character. He's a total brat, and I love bratty kids, who care more than they say. His ditzy mother made me giggle as well.
This book is really meant to make readers laugh. It's a feel good novel that accomplishes what it set out to do. It's not a book that really get to the deeper meaning of things, which was a relief from some of other books that I've read lately. The characters suffer from exaggerated teen angst--we all know that feeling. It makes for a good laugh, but the aim is those in middle school/early high school!
My Totally Awkward Supernatural Crush an extremely amusing story, but if I'm being honest, it didn't tickle me as much as I had hoped. There's something that I can't exactly place my finger on that this book lacked. This has an undeniably obvious target audience of preteens are younger teenagers. The behavior and thoughts of the main character make it impossible to deny who this is really for. It's a book that anyone can read and laugh with, but forming a connection with it was more difficult because I couldn't find anything with which to really relate. This is a novel that was nice to read as I was reading it, but in the long run isn't very memorable.
I received a copy of this novel from the publisher for my honest opinion and review.
