Love is all you need...or is it? Penny's about to find out in this wonderful debut.

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.


This book is a light and fun read. The story is about Penny Lane Bloom (yes, her parents are Beatles fan!) who swears off guys because of a failed relationship. She quietly starts a club that she calls, right, The Lonely Hearts Club. At first, she's all by herself until she finds out that her friends are also tired of wasting their time on guys. And the rest follows.

The characters are funny and witty. I never thought of having this kind of club back when I was in highschool. This book made me think of my high school days. The dramas over boys, break ups, hanging out with your girlfriends or boyfriends. It's just funny how the concept can let you remember those days when you would also swear off boys because they broke your heart. I think the target audience of the book is teens and middle grade. Nevertheless, I enjoyed reading it.

The Lonely Hearts Club is an enjoyable read despite the cheesy teenage dramas. I liked the Beatles references and the simple idea that this book implies to its readers.
