What Would Emma Do?-Eileen Cook @ 6:31 AM
Synopsis (from back of book):
Thou Shalt Not Kiss Thy Best Friend's Boyfriend...again...
There is no greater sin than kissing your best friend's boyfriend. So when Emma breaks that golden rule, she knows she's messed up big-time. Especially since she lives in the smallest town ever, where everyone knows everything about everybody else...and especially since she maybe kinda wants to do it again. Now her best friend isn't speaking to her, her best guy friend is making things totally weird, and Emma is running full speed toward certain social disaster. This is so not the way senior year is supposed to go.
Time to pray for a minor miracle. Or maybe, just maybe, it's time for Emma to stop trying to please everyone around her, and figure out what she wants for herself.
Description in one word: Religious (but not in a bad way, necessarily)
When I picked up this book and read the summary, I had really high hopes for it. And, to be honest, they fulfilled those hopes (for the most part). I read most of the book in the period of two days, just because of all the drama going on, I just wanted to keep reading to figure out what was going to happen. I could really relate to what Emma was going through, besides the whole ' The only part that I didn't enjoy about this book was that there was a prayer to God at the start of each chapter, and since I'm not very religious, that aspect didn't appeal to me much.
I've certainly heard about books about kissing your best friends' boyfriend, but definitely not like this one. While I was reading, there was a lot of unique situations that I have never read in any other book, and I found that quite nice. It was overall a good book, but like most others, I couldn't get into it that fast.
In conclusion, I would recommend reading this book if you're looking for a good old fashioned drama filled with excitement, but not so much if you're an athiest, or against the whole 'God' concept.
Thanks again for reading!!
