Review: The Book of Luke by Jenny O'Connell

Released: April 3, 2007
Publisher: MTV
Rated: YA
Buy Amazon | Book Depository

Emily Abbott has always been considered the Girl Most Likely to Be Nice -- but lately being nice hasn't done her any good. Her parents have decided to move the family from Chicago back to their hometown of Boston in the middle of Emily's senior year. Only Emily's first real boyfriend, Sean, is in Chicago, and so is her shot at class valedictorian and early admission to the Ivy League. What's a nice girl to do?

Then Sean dumps Emily on moving day and her father announces he's staying behind in Chicago "to tie up loose ends," and Emily decides that what a nice girl needs to do is to stop being nice.

She reconnects with her best friends in Boston, Josie and Lucy, only to discover that they too have been on the receiving end of some glaring Guy Don'ts. So when the girls have to come up with something to put in the senior class time capsule, they know exactly what to do. They'll create a not-so-nice reference guide for future generations of guys -- an instruction book that teaches them the right way to treat girls.

But when her friends draft Emily to test out their tips on Luke Preston -- the hottest, most popular guy in school, who just broke up with Josie by email -- Emily soon finds that Luke is the trickiest of test subjects . . . and that even a nice girl like Emily has a few things to learn about love.

What I thought:

This was pretty good. My first Jennifer O'Connell book and I have to say I like her writing. The premise was really interesting. But after finishing the book, I really would have thought Emily, when she wanted to stop being a nice girl, would actually cop an attitude or something. It wasn't really the case. It was sometimes a struggle for her to not be the nice girl.

I liked the book idea in the story. It was interesting. Reading the random rules at the beginning of chapters was a great touch. It gave us an insight into what the girls were writing. I don't know how I really felt about Emily's friends wanting her to date Luke and dump him to get back at him. I kept cringing when she was falling more and more for him and I wasn't sure there was a way out since her friend was wanting to get back together with him in the end.

Luke wasn't the bad guy, like I thought he was going to be. I was going in the book thinking he would be a player or something. Not the case. More of a case of a boy who doesn't want a high maintenance gal. I didn't find him jerkish, just practical.

Overall, I liked the story. It was pretty good. It was told in a great narrative that has a Mean Girls feel to it, minus the Regina George. Definitely worth the read.
