The Lonely Hearts Club, Elizabeth Eulberg

2010/03/29

After a particularly exasperating experience with her childhood sweetheart, Penny Lane Bloom (so named by her Beatles-loving parents), swears off dating and decides to start a club inspired by one of her favourite songs: “The Lonely Hearts Club.” Soon enough, her friends have joined her, much to the dismay of the male population of their high school. The girls draw together to support one another, which creates jealously and infiltration by those not in the club. Penny’s parents are supportive and encouraging, even when school administrators accuse her of being sexist and causing trouble amongst students.

Each chapter opens with a lyric from a Beatles’ song. The writing is mostly lighthearted, and this is a quick, fun read. Fans of the “Princess Diaries” and similar books will enjoy this one.
