Review: Its not you, Its Me


Book: "Its Not You, It's Me"
Author: Kerry Cohen Hoffmann
Pages: 176
Rating: 3.5 out of 5
Cover Rating: 3.5 out of 5

Zoe has had her dream boyfriend for six months now. Six whole months! She is in love. So what if she she stopped helping with the big school artistic newsletter that she had started. So what if she stopped spending as much time doing the things that she used to love. He's worth it - isn't he? Zoe is devastated. Her 6 month long term relationship boyfriend has broken up with her. Why? It must have been a mistake! Zoe is determined to get him back, no matter what it takes. Gushy poems snuck into his locker, dressing up, or even kissing another boy, just to make him realize that him breaking up with Zoe was a mistake. However, will it work?

This was for sure not the greatest book that I have read. I felt that the characters were not developed as well as they should have been. Zoe wasn't really written in a way that I could feel for her. Overall, I didn't especially enjoy this book, however you might love it! I just like it when you are able to relate and bond with the characters so that if something disappointing happens in the characters lives you can really feel for them! However, "Its Not You, It's Me," could make a nice book for someone who has just broken up with her boyfriend.

I am not sure that I want to read that book. Good review though.

This doesn't sound like the type of book I would enjoy. I would probably get annoyed with Zoe for lusting after her ex. Thanks for a superb and honest review :)

Good review!
I won't judge it yet, though, might read a few more opinions before deciding whether I'm going to read it or not.
Keep it up! Always say what you think!
