This book is laugh out loud funny and was strangely addicting. I read this book in a day as well and seriously loved it. Sophie is fifteen and starts dating a guy named Dylan who at first she’s all excited about and then starts noticing things about him that irritate her. For example, she’s taller than him, he actually watches the movies they see together, and he doesn’t want his parents to know that she is Jewish, which just says a lot about this guy Dylan. Trying to find someone else, Sophie begins liking a guy named Murph who is a complete ugly and geeky dork. People say stuff like “Don’t be such a Murph.” But for some reason Sophie is extremely attracted to his personality and cannot stop thinking about him. She knows that it’s wrong for her to be embarrassed and that if she wants to be happy she has to come clean and not care what other people are saying about her and him. I loved this book. It was one of those books that took me back to when I was in middle school and first liking boys. Sophie’s character is very lovable, cool and realistic. It’s also one of those books where you can learn a lot about yourself through the eyes of the character in the book. Would I be able to risk social suicide to love the guy of my dreams? Sounds like an extremely silly and stupid question, but is it really?
