Book Review: Tweet Heart by Elizabeth Rudnick

Tweet Heart by Elizabeth Rudnick
Genre: Young Adult Fiction
Release Date: Available Now
Publisher: Hyperion Book CH
Pages: 272
Source: The Teen Book Scene Book Tour

Summary: Claire is a #hopelessromantic. Lottie is determined to set up her BFF with Mr. Perfect. Will wants his #secretcrush to finally notice him. Bennett is a man with a plan. Claire can’t believe it when her dream guy starts following her on Twitter. She never thought he noticed her, and suddenly he seems to understand her better than almost anyone. But the Twitterverse can be a confusing place, especially when friends act differently online than they do in person. Things get even more complicated when Claire realizes she’s falling for someone else, the last person she ever would have expected….

My Review: What do some people do on a daily basis? We tweet our life stories. Every moment of boredom we find ourselves sharing our inner thoughts and socializing with others. Social networks surround our lives so much that we finally have a YA book to share our love for it together. Elizabeth's innovative approach to writing a romantic comedy in the form of twitter was pure genius. The fast-paced plot and entertaining characters were elements for success. Claire and Lottie were the perfect best friend combination. Their constant support for each other was admirable and sweet. Joining them on twitter were their two close guy friends, Will and Bennett.

Bennett was by far my favorite character, his sense of humor and sarcastic tone made me laugh out loud. Will, on the other hand, was a sweetheart who was secretly crushing on Claire. Besides the twitter conversations, Claire and Bennett had their own blogs. Their blog entries were hysterical. Claire ran a "clueless" love question site while Bennett liked to rant on about his daily routines. I obviously related to this aspect of the book and was glad to see blogging and e-mails made an appearance. The outcome of the story was perfect. I couldn't have asked for a better ending. Overall, Tweet Heart was a cute debut that everyone should pick up! Even individuals who don't tweet will enjoy this fun filled novel. If you look past the form, a great story and characters lie within it.

My Rating:

I love books written in emails or journal entries. I've even read one that was almost entirely newspaper articles. I really can't wait to read some tweets! Is there a facebook book like this?
