Flirt Club by Cathleen Daly

Here's a bit from goodreads about this book: When two self-professed middle school drama geeks––Isabelle and Annie (a.k.a. Cisco and The Bean)––fail at their attemps in romance, they start Flirt Club, an after school support group for similarly afflicted friends who decide to take decisive and strategic action with hilarious and touching results.

My Take

These girls were so funny.  I really did like them.  However, to be perfectly honest, this book was not terribly realistic for me.  The girls passed notes all the time.  Just about every teen I know texts these days.  Rarely do they write notes, even if cells aren't allowed at school. 

There was other things too like mentioning The Monkees.  I don't know that many teens today would know who The Monkees were.  Talking about ABBA and the song "You Sexy Thing" by Hot Chocolate.  I'm sure teens today would be going "WHO?"

Cisco and The Bean very funny and I loved the exploits of the Flirt Club.  I just think the references fell flat for me and became a sort of distraction.  I kept having to remind myself that it wasn't set in the seventies but in present time.  I'm giving this one 3 flirty kisses!
