MY INVISIBLE BOYFRIEND a YA Book Review

The Hook: 
"Heidi has the perfect solution to her popularity problems - a fake boyfriend. She's even made him an Internet profile that makes him look like a motorcycle-riding, poetry reading bad boy. *swoon* Heidi's friends are so impressed they start emailing Heidi's fake boyfriend with their problems . . . including their problems with Heidi."


MY INVISIBLE BOYFRIEND by Susie Day is a YA reader's must-have. It's packed with a fun hook and creative writing. Susie Day has an M.T. Anderson-ish style (not Octavia Nothing-ish, more Feed) and brings additional writer's spice to the table. Day blends imaginative elements  such as bizarre recipes, imaginary friends, enigmatic characters, and an element of mystery to create a perfect recipe of plot and drama. YA readers will love this book.
