Dating in high school is like reality TV. It can get pretty surreal.
Between the strict social ladder (geeks’ lockers left, jocks’ to the right), and silly, pointless rules (no hand-holding, no kissing, no breathing!), high school is the single worst place to find a boyfriend. And Laura Sweeney is no exception. She hasn’t had a date since…well, ever.
Desperate times call for desperate measures. So Laura is calling in the big guns. She needs guidance. A proven “get the guy” strategy. Luckily she knows exactly the expert to call. He’s a matchmaking mastermind who actually has the bow and arrow to prove it. Let’s just call him…Cupid.
This is a silly teen book about a girl named Laura Sweeney who loves mythology. When she inadvertently beseeches Jupiter for a boyfriend, Cupid is sent to her school in disguise as a hot teenage girl and chaos ensues.
In the following days, Cupid manages to hook up several interesting couples that don’t always work out. It takes a love match between nerdy boy Patrick popular head cheerleader Megan for Laura to realize she wanted the nerdy guy all along.
I think a pre-teen who loves to read will find enjoyment in this book, but it was a little too juvenile for me.
