The Cupid Chronicles by Coleen Murtagh Paratore
Posted July 13, 2008on:
Willa is back and just entering her freshman year of high school. Things are going great. Her mom and her new husband, Willa’s old English teacher, are happily running a bed and breakfast of sorts and things have relaxed a bit. But Willa has two new problems now – figuring out whether JFK loves her or some other girl and stopping the Bramble Library from closing due to lack of funds. Working as the school’s Community Service leader and hosting semi-romantic dances may just help Willa save the library and find some romance for herself.
Following the footsteps of the first book in the series, The Wedding Planner’s Daughter, The Cupid Chronicles includes the perfect amount of humor to make a laugh-out-loud funny book, without over doing it. The writing style keeps the reader intrigued throughout the entire story and the characters are so easy to relate to that you feel as if you’re really inside their heads. The Willa series is, by far, my favorite tween series and I’d recommend it to everyone, no matter what their age. I think this series may even be a good read for 7th or 8th graders to read in class. I can’t wait to read the third book and the series and hope you decide to too.
