Meg Cabot has lived in Indiana and California, USA, and in France. In addition to her adult novels, she is the author of the highly successful series of children’s book, The Princess Diaries, the first of which Walt Disney Pictures released as a major motion picture. Meg and her husband now share their time between Florida and New York City.
The book in one sentence: Cartoonist Jane Harris has to help her best friend elope in Italy while keeping the best man and groom’s best friend Cal Langdon from spoiling it all for the soon-to-be-newlyweds because he believes they’re making a mistake!
Who would you recommend it to: Meg Cabot’s fans. Or a teenage girl wanting to try an adult romance read without the sex bits.
OK bits: I like how Cal proved his love to Jane in the end.
Boring bits: Not so much boring as cheesy and totally unbelievable, which is pretty much the whole book itself.
Verdict: I love chick lit, but this has to be one of the worst I’ve read. It tries to be chick lit for teenage girls, which is like a kid trying hard to be grown-up but the characters are working adults. It shows that it’s quite childish and unoriginal in the end. And the title quite baffles me – why is it referring to a boy and not a girl?
