Pretty Things

Speak, 2006 - Juvenile Fiction - 263 pages
5 Reviews
Brie is in love with Lanc me Juicy Tubes, Louis Vuitton accessories, and her gay best friend Charlie, who is in love with 1960s pop art, 1980s teen movies, and serial heartbreaker Walker, who has ever only been in love with his VW Bug, until he meets Daisy . . . who is too busy hating everyone to know what love is. Set in London, this girl-loves-boy-loves-boy-lovesgirl romp is set against a theatrical production of The Taming of the Shrew, and features enough on- and off-stage drama to satisfy teens looking for a beach read--or a read all year round.

Funny book about love triangles, friendship, and discovering your sexuality. It could be a book for boys or girls, but I recommend for the older crowd. "Guitar Girl" was a great book by Manning and "Pretty Things" has the same kind of humor. Read full review
