How to Hook a Hottie by Tina Ferraro
(Random House, Paperback)
Kate is a no-nonsense girl, intent on becoming a millionaire before the age of twenty. She has a deal with her parents - raise $5,000 before senior year is over and she doesn't have to waste four precious, potential money-earning years in college. Her piggy bank is looking a little grim until the hottest guy in school asks her out. Now all of a sudden, every girl in school is asking Kate for help on how to hook a hottie. That's when she comes up with her Six Point Plan. For only $100, any girl in school can learn Kate's Hexagon For Hooking Hotties. But does Kate really know what she's talking about?
I'm not sure I would pay $100 to learn how to snag a cute guy, but Kate's story is laugh-out-loud funny. Enter in a super cute best guy friend, Dal, and Kate's predicament is even funnier. Dal's her best friend, plus he has a girlfriend, and yet Kate can't stop comparing every guy to him. Luckily, Dal is helping her hoodwink the girls in school and his hottie-hooking tips seem to be working. My favorite tip was the one that Dal saved for last. Look for this novel on shelves in January. It's a quick read and sure to be a good diversion on a snowy day.
