Superior comic writing combined with a major snark factor turns this full-on chick-lit outing into major fun…Plenty of witty merriment for all high-school social sets.
Falling in love blends with saving the earth in Sheldon’s latest novel, and both dramas are passionate, urgent, transforming, and hilarious.
Going green is initially more about romance than righteousness for high school rivals Sicilee and Maya, but their attempts to do so provide lots of laughs. Using drily funny third-person narration to expose various characters’ hypocrisies, Sheldon shows impeccable comic timing and a strong sense of irony…
The whole story is hilarious and totally relatable. Every girl has done something a little insane to attract the attention of a cute guy, but we love that Maya and Sicilee accidentally end up doing some good for the world in the process!
Dyan Sheldon, who has made a name for herself with breezy, funny, smart fiction like CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE DRAMA QUEEN, is back in fine form with THE CRAZY THINGS GIRLS DO FOR LOVE. Her often snarky narration, which shifts back and forth among a handful of characters, cleverly showcases each character’s delusions, shortcomings and misperceptions…Fortunately, Sheldon manages to educate her characters, including interesting factoids about the planet that just might enlighten many readers as well.
