Tweet Heart by Elizabeth Rudnick

Title: Tweet Heart (a novel in e-mails, blogs, and tweets)
Author: Elizabeth Rudnick
ISBN: 9781423135289
Publisher: Hyperion
Page #: 264
Source: From My Library

"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 thought he would never notice 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 would have expected..."
First Lines:

"LotsOlove is now following ClaireRBear
Thursday, March 11, 9:02am

LotsOlove@ClaireRBear Welcome to Twitter, Bear! Let the boy-stalking (ahem, following!) begin."
Page 1

Can I just say that writing out that little first line was really complicated?!? I can't imagine writing the whole book that way. But more power to the author! It would drive me batty, but you would probably get used to tags and such. To be clear, that's not a complaint about the book! In fact, I don't have any complaints about the book.

This is one of those really fun love stories that takes no time at all to know what's going to happen. That's sooo refreshingly nice. I'm also really partial to books written in text/email/blog/twitter formats. It makes me feel like I'm just reading all of my updates! It's also really very easy to read and get into. I know others may have problems with the format, but I'm a fan.

One thing that I specifically enjoyed about the Twitter format is the icons that are connected with each of the accounts. I had the exact picture of most of the character - which gave me even more of a clue as to what was going on. Uhm, and I have to admit that I may have teared up a little bit at the end of the book. Perhaps because it's just so adorably wonderful :).

I was a bit proud of myself for getting all of the cultural references. There are times that I think I'm getting too old for this stuff, but really I was right there. So... *pats self on back*... good job. This book also made me wish I were more involved in Twitter. I mean, I have an account. More specifically, I have two. But the thing is that I never find the time to update them. Or perhaps I don't have the things to say. Or I have things to say but didn't write them down... or didn't think they were worthy. I guess it's also that I don't have friends that use Twitter... so it almost seems worthless for me.

Anyway, that was a little off topic. I did have fun with this book and I would definitely pick up another book from this author. And check out her website here. So much fun and I plan on recommending it to all of my romance loving teens.
