Check this review out at YA Novelties3.25 Stars!REVIEW
The cover of this book is cute, just like the novel was. The Boyfriend Thief was a lot more Middle-Grade than YA, but it was still a good read. I was torn between giving it a 3 stars or a 3.5 stars, so decided it is a 3.25 star book! :)
Avery, the main character, really disappointed me. I guess I wanted to like her, but I couldn't. I didn't dislike her, but at the same time I can't really say that I liked her. I know this is kind of confusing and extremely oxymoronic, but this is how I feel; deal with it! :P Avery was just kind of forgettable? I read a lot of contemporary novels and you really can't switch it up with contemporary, so most novels basically have a similar plot, but different-ish characters. With Avery I was really angry at her for being angry at others. I know something bad happened between her, Hannah, and Eillot, but we don't know quite why until much later. I am all for building suspense, but that suspense was stretched out a bit too long...
I liked Zac although he was very much like other contemporary male characters. I was rooting for Zac and Avery though! LOL:)
The character I liked the best was Elliot. I thought he was just a random character, but the novel had an unexpected twist to the book with Elliot.
The plot as I said before, it's not quite original, but it was an easy, cute read. If you are aiming for a light and fast read this is the novel for you!
