Crush



Crush by Gary Paulsen

Wow. The king of adventure stories with a romance! In this delightful book, Kevin from Liar, Liar and Flat Broke is trying to ask out the love of his life. However, since he's nervous, he decides to take a scientific approach and study other couples, both successful and not. He learns a lot by observing others, as much of it about himself as about love or the people he's studying. I found Kevin to be a believable, likable character who's situation will ring true to most guys who have struggled with how to ask out a girl.

This review is based on a publisher supplied electronic copy.

Until next time, bon voyage and happy reading!
