Review: Tips on Having a Gay (ex) Boyfriend by Carrie Jones

Summary: Is it fair to be mad, mad, mad at your boyfriend for being gay? Anything but straight in small town Maine won't exactly be a walk in the park, even for invincible Dylan. But can't heartbroken Belle whine just a little? What's a girl to do when her perfect soulmate says Goodbye Belle, Hello Bob?

For starters, she makes a list on how to deal. (from inside cover of hardcover)

Review: I thought this book could help me get over my gay ex-boyfriend. It seemed really intriguing. It made everything seem like it could really happen. It was a sweet story, but it involved a lot of people that were mean and some things that seemed impossible. For one thing, if she loved Dylan so much for two years, why does she automatically start liking another guy?

It seemed like the tone of the voice of more of an immature person than a senior in high school, more like a freshman. This story has more than one list, but not all of them seemed to be good ones. They just seemed to be something for her to distract her and not really help her.

I also hated what they said the word "fag-hag". Jones used it in a context where only the "bad" people said it, but I still find that word a little offense.

I would give this book 3 coins.
5 = best
1 = worst
