When Penny's (yes Penny Lane!) heart is crushed by her childhood sweetheart, she resolves to be done with boys for good. After all, all the boys she's ever dated have crushed her heart and with no good reason. She forms the Lonely Hearts Club, inspired by her family's life long devotion to the Beatles and determines not to date any more boys.
But then slowly, her friends and many other girls start seeing a reason to join the club as well. They make crazy rules, resolve to go to social events together, you get the idea.
But not all the boys are thrilled with the idea (of course!) and one guy in particular might have a thing for Penny.....but can she recogonize she might like him back in time?
I really enjoyed this book! It was so fun and sweet and just really reminded me of high school in that crazy sort of way. After all, haven't we all wanted to swear off boys at some point? But it was a fun reminder of friendship and first love and I think many girls can relate to this story. Plus what fun with all the Beatles quotes and references and Penny's crazy parents!
things You might want to Know: I really liked the way teen sex, teen drinking, etc. was handled in this book. It was present but showcased responsibly.
