The Lonely Hearts Club by Elizabeth Eulberg

Publication Date: December 2009

Summary: 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: I've read a few reviews on this so I didn't know what I was getting myself into. I've heard good and bad. But, since I usually like romantic books I dove into this one. From the first page I was hooked. We meet Penny who I instantly liked. We meet her friends, and we meet Ryan, her ex-best friends boyfriend. I instantly liked him from the get-go. Even when Penny was saying how once her best friend started dating him, she ditched Penny. I still liked Ryan. HA, the boy whose locker was next to mine in high school was also named Ryan! HAHA! We also meet another guy who is into Penny. She seems to be the nice girl who the guys want but don't usually make their feelings known. I totally adored this book. There were parts that were somewhat predicable but it made me want to keep reading more and more. I loved the chemistry between Penny and her mystery guy. I loved all the Beatles references. I loved Penny's friends. I loved the club. Can I join the club please? We've all been through what Penny goes through before. Feeling like guys are losers and are evvillll! Been there, done that! This book is adorable.

Overall: Adorable! Cute! Awesome! Loved It! Loved the club. Loved Penny. Loved Ryan. Loved it all! Plain and simple: This book will be bought as a keeper for me.

Cover: I adore this cover. I think its just perfect for this book. I like the colors, I even like the cursive writing! Cute!

I usually do not post things out of the book but this I can't resist.

The Official Guidelines of Penny Lane's Lonely Hearts Club
Heretofore are thy official rules for members of "Penny Lane's Lonely Hearts Club." All members must agree to such terms or thy membership shall be struck from thy record.
1) All members agree to stop dating men (or, if referring to the male population at McKinley High, "little boys") for the rest of thy high school existence. Whether or not said members want to date after high school, they choose to proceed at their own risk. Failure to adhere to this, the most sacred rule, will result in the highest punishment allowed by law--streaking through the halls of McKinley after lunch.
2) Members will attend all couple events together as a group, including, but not limited to, Homecoming, Prom, parties, and other couply events, despite possibly being labeled as freaks, and getting jealous looks from guys who wish we were their hot dates, but instead have to settle for some lame wannabe.
3) Saturday night is the official meeting night of Penny Lane's Lonely Hearts Club. Attendance is mandatory. Exceptions are for family emergencies and bad hair days only.
4) Members must be supportive of their friends, despite bad choices in clothing, hair, and/or music.
Violators of the rules are subject to membership disqualifications, public humiliation, vicious rumors, and possible beheading.
