Getting Over Garrett Delaney by Abby McDonald
This book will appeal to anyone who has ever had a totally one-sided crush on someone. Sadie has been in love with her best friend Garrett for two years. They watch art movies, write poetry, and spend much of their time together. Unfortunately, she's the best friend who's always there to sympathize as he talks about his problems and successes with other girlfriends. When Garrett goes off to a summer writing program and Sadie is left behind for the summer she decides it's time for a Garrett detox. No more thinking about him, dreaming about him, and hearing about his new girlfriends. With the help of Sadie's new friends at the coffee shop where she works and her old friend Kayla she puts the twelve step plan into action. This was a humorous book with good writing and it kept me interested till the end. It would be good for teens who like chick lit and realistic fiction.
