My Summary: Claire's just been given the job of being the school's love advice columnist, and she is definitely not thrilled due to her lack of experience in that department. The guy she's been crushing on for years hardly notices her, and when he does, she's always doing something embarrassing.
But then Mr. Right, JD Whitcomb himself starts following her Twitter account, and she gets to know the man underneath. In the meantime, Claire's best friends Will and Bennett are caught up in a mess that's only unraveling faster and faster, and Lottie is pushing Claire to be more assertive and just talk to Mr. Right in public, not just in the Twitterverse....but what if Mr. Right isn't who she thought he was?
Review: Cute and unique, Tweet Heart is fun to read from start to finish.
Told entirely in Tweets, emails and blog posts, the story of Claire and her three friends is set up perfectly. I've got to admit, I wondered just how Rudnick could possibly write this story, and make it easy to follow. Surprisingly, the format made sense (and I believe non-twitter users will find it easy to understand), and she managed to tell the story fully and completely.
Rudnick lets us get to know the four main characters, although Claire probably does get the most focus. Will is a definite sweetheart, Bennett is completely amusing, and Lottie an incredible, supportive friend. Their relationships all make sense, and each character seemed very developed with different personalities.
If you're looking for a quick, high-school-romance-gone-wrong-and-cue-the-resolution book, then Tweet Heart is definitely for you.
Highlights: Creativity, for sure, regarding the format of the story. Plus, this story really was so endearing and sweet. I could easily sympathize with each of the characters, to the point where I didn't even know which character I liked the best.
Lowlights: The plot is easy to predict, but that didn't really keep me from enjoying it. I knew how it would end from the very beginning, and I still enjoyed it.
What drew me to this book was the format, Twitter messages (and direct messages), emails, blog posts, and advice columns, honestly I'd read just about anything with this sort of format. But the storyline is what kept me reading. I think the format took this cute and sweet story and made it seem real to me. I mean looking at this kids twitter icons allowed me to see what they "looked like" and imagine them actually typing these sentences and going through these situations. I … more
