Review: My Invisible Boyfriend by Susie Day


Title: My Invisible Boyfriend
Series: N/A 
Book #: N/A
Author: Susie Day
Source: Author (review copy)
Published: 2010
Rating.5

Heidi has the perfect solution to her popularity problems - a fake boyfriend. She's even made him an Internet profile that makes him look like a motorcycle-riding, poetry reading bad boy. *swoon* Heidi's friends are so impressed they start emailing Heidi's fake boyfriend with their problems . . . including their problems with Heidi.

As if that weren't bad enough, a delicious and possibly single person called "A Real Boy" emails Heidi to say he knows the truth. Can Heidi escape from her world wide web of lies? Or will her chance at romance disappear faster than you can type gtg?

Amber's thoughts:

Can I just start out by saying how much I enjoyed this book? I mean, really enjoyed it? My Invisible Boyfriend is one of those books that makes you smile over and over again. Lighthearted and witty, Day's writing was able to tickle my funny bone. At the same time, the story also deals with the many insecurities and problems faced by teen girls today.


Heidi is a hilarious character. Her ridiculous schemes will make you groan in horror and laugh out loud. I loved Heidi's crazy imagination and witty personality. Although she may seem to be a naive, immature teenager, I saw Heidi as a girl who truly cares about her friends and family. Yes, she may make some dumb choices that had me banging my head on my desk in frustration, but in her heart Heidi only wants to do what's right


The secondary characters were also fun to read about. As the reader, I got to see a wide variation of the stereotypical high school kids. One of the things I loved most about this book was how I got to look past the stereotypes and see the real kids. The book may qualify as a lighthearted chick-lit book, but there is also a side that delves into the confusion and insecurities that come with being a teen. 


Overall, My Invisible Boyfriend is a book I would definitely recommend to any Meg Cabot/ Michele Jaffe fan. That is, if you love witty, cute stories, then this is your book. So what are you waiting for? Read it!

It sounds good--and my own teen years help me relate to a girl who makes up the perfect boyfriend! =P

For me, the standard for YA Romance was set by The Unlikely Romance of Kate Bjorkman by Louise Plummer (Which I totally recommend!), and it has almost ruined me for all other books. But now and then something interests me enough to give it a try, and this time it's My Invisible Boyfriend!
