Lonely Hearts Club
by Elizabeth Eulberg

Penny is sick of boys and sick of dating. So she vows: no more. It's a personal choice. . .and, of course, soon everyone wants to know about it. And a few other girls are inspired. A movement is born: The Lonely Hearts Club (named after the band from Sgt. Pepper). Penny is suddenly known for her nondating ways . . . which is too bad, because there's this certain boy she can't help but like. . . .
What an inspirational book it was! Lonely Hearts Club is very up-lifting, funny and sweet. I was literally laughing, dancing and singing while I was reading it. It was one of the cutest, heart and soul warming book I’ve read so far in 2010.

Lonely Hearts Club is about self-empowerment and friendship, especially a friendship while you are in the relationship. So basically, it is about fundamental things and fundamental feelings that we all sometimes tend to ignore in favor of something that actually not important – an attention from the hottest guy in the school or popularity.

Elizabeth Eulberg created some very strong female characters, characters you want to be, characters you want to follow. The author is teaching us through them to take in considerations our own interests, hobbies and friends first and not only live and breathe with what our boyfriends are interested in.

She also created a moving and dynamic story. It is absolutely fascinating how from a tiny personal choice of one girl, like a snow avalanche, such a huge movement was born. And oh, how desperately those who were against it were trying to stop it, trying to prevent a revolution, revolution in the average insecure high school girl’s mind.

In the ocean of YA books where a main female character is falling so desperately and hard in love that can’t literally live without some hot paranormal creature – this book is definitely a breath of fresh air. Lonely Hearts Club is fabulous debut and I’m looking forward to read Elizabeth Eulberg’s other books.
