Laugh Out Loud

3 out of 5

Favorite Quote: "Nightgown? You think I sleep in a nightgown? What century is this?"

Summary: Sonny Ardmore is an excellent liar. She lies about her dad being in prison. She lies about her mom kicking her out. And she lies about sneaking into her best friend's house every night because she has nowhere else to go. Amy Rush might be the only person Sonny shares everything with— secrets, clothes, even a nemesis named Ryder Cross. Ryder's the new kid at Hamilton High and everything Sonny and Amy can't stand—a prep-school snob. But Ryder has a weakness: Amy. So when Ryder emails Amy asking her out, the friends see it as a prank opportunity not to be missed. But without meaning to, Sonny ends up talking to Ryder all night online. And to her horror, she realizes that she might actually like him. Only there's one small catch: he thinks he's been talking to Amy. So Sonny comes up with an elaborate scheme to help Ryder realize that she's the girl he's really wanted all along. Can Sonny lie her way to the truth, or will all her lies end up costing her both Ryder and Amy?

Review: This book was fun, light, and easy to read, but it lacked that special something to really make it great. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it. I just wish that some of the characters' stories where more dimensional. (I mean, come on. Sonny had so much going for her...a father in jail, a crappy mom...) I love romance, but I would like a little more substance. (I get it. The dude is hot, but with everything else going on in her life you would think she would be worrying about him a little less...I really just wanted to shout: GIRL, YOUR HOMELESS! Get your priorities straight!) 
However, I did enjoy the Wesley and Bianca snippets. (The movies is COMPLETELY different from the book! If you haven't read it, you should! It was GREAT!)
