The Lonely Hearts Club
By Elizabeth Eulberg
Publication date: Jan. 1, 2010
Point, 290 pages
Source: From my friend Melanie ages ago and finally reading now! <3

Love is all you need… or is it? Penny’s about to find out in this wonderful debut.

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. . . .

— Goodreads.com description

Well, I couldn’t keep all of the characters straight to save my life…but The Lonely Hearts Club was so cute that it didn’t overrule my opinion of this great, realistic read.

I loved the girl power message — ladies, you don’t need a man to be happy! I loved to see Penny and her friends come together, to pursue their own interests, to build supportive female friendships and realize that not all men are actually scum! Ha!

Very cute, especially for younger YA readers. Glad a sequel (We Can Work It Out) is coming out in January 2015!
