My edition/number of pages: PB/264
Age group: Young adult
Claire is a #hopelessromantic. Lottie is determined to set up her BFF with Mr. Perfect. Will wants his #secretcrush to finally notice him. Bennett is a man with a plan.
Claire can’t believe it when her dream guy starts following her on Twitter. She never thought he noticed her, and suddenly he seems to understand her better than almost anyone.
But the Twitterverse can be a confusing place, especially when friends act differently online than they do in person. Things get even more complicated when Claire realizes she’s falling for someone else, the last person she ever would have expected….
Forget everything you think about this book. Whether you think you will like it or you think you will hate it, just forget it. Read the book for yourself because it’s not at all what you might think. At least, that’s the way it was for me. I loved it and it exceeded all my expectations.
Claire has joined the bandwagon and created a Twitter account. She can now tweet with her closest friends and maybe even her crush. When he starts following her, she finally gets up the nerve to chat with him. Too bad she’s not brave enough to do it in person. At least not yet. Things are going great for Claire now but everything is not what it seems. Could her prince charming not be so charming after all?
Tweet Heart is the first ever YA book in tweet format and I hope there will be more like it in the future. I didn’t think I would like the tweets, emails, and blogs that the book was written in but I was so wrong. It was just as good as any other book that I have read and instead of taking away from the book, the format only added to it’s originality.
The characters were my biggest complaint. Claire was pretty obsessed with JD and I didn’t understand why. She barely ever talked to him. She only liked him because he was hot, popular, and unobtainable. I got very tired of listening to her go on and on about him. She did grow out of that particular annoyance though. I liked her a lot better after that. The rest of the characters seemed more mature than Claire, except for Bennett. Bennett was immature and completely hilarious. His tweets were definitely the best.
Overall, Tweet Heart was just an all around good book. While the story was a bit typical, the format was anything but. All I can say about it is that I enjoyed it and I think many others will too. You just have to give it a chance.
