The Lonely Hearts Club de Elizabeth Eulberg

Synopsis: Love is all you need... or is it? Penny's about to find out in this wonderful debut.

Penny is sick of boys and sick of dating. So she vows: no more. It's a personal choice. . .and, of course, soon everyone wants to know about it. And a few other girls are inspired. A movement is born: The Lonely Hearts Club (named after the band from Sgt. Pepper). Penny is suddenly known for her nondating ways . . . which is too bad, because there's this certain boy she can't help but like. . .
My thoughts: a good book. A good story, but the end seemed a little blurry. What about now? What is Penny Lane’s position in all of this? If the book’s title is “The Lonely Hearts Club” and the main target is to show that women can live without a date and be happy, why we didn’t see this kind of ending? Penny, our main character, could have continued without a guy. The end seemed like a happy ending instead of an ending that is committed to the title.
                Despite that, the book is really funny, so you laugh a lot. The situations that our main character goes through are great, creative and a few may be chosen as realistic.
