Book Review - Getting Over Garrett Delaney
Seventeen-year-old Sadie is in love: epic, heartfelt, and utterly one-sided. The object of her obsession — ahem, affection — is her best friend, Garrett Delaney, who has been oblivious to Sadie’s feelings ever since he sauntered into her life and wowed her with his passion for Proust (not to mention his deep blue eyes). When Garrett leaves for a summer literary retreat, Sadie is sure that the absence will make his heart grow fonder — until he calls to say he's fallen in love. With some other girl! A heartbroken Sadie realizes that she’s finally had enough. It’s time for a total Garrett detox! Aided by a barista job, an eclectic crew of new friends (including the hunky chef, Josh), and a customized self-help guide, Sadie embarks on a summer of personal reinvention full of laughter, mortifying meltdowns, and a double shot of love.
My Take on the Book
This was a funny book for any tween/teen that has ever had their own loves that may be long lost, or ones that they have been pining for for a long time. The book is well written and you get to really get inside the head of the main character Sadie. The book was a lot of fun (even for a guy) and even better though was the journey and realizations that Sadie goes through in the book to become stronger and more self-confident. The message held within the book is definitely one that I would want my own girls to relate to as they get older and makes the book one that I would definitely recommend to teen girls especially!
