Penny is sick of boys and sick of dating, so she vows: No more. She's had one too many bad dates and has been hurt by one too many bad boys.
It's a personal choice... and of course, soon everyone wants to know about it. It's about much more than romance gone awry -i t's also about the ways girls bend over backwards to get guys, and how they end up prioritizing boyfriends over real friends. Penny thinks she might be crazy for saying these things, but soon a few other girls are inspired-and a movement is born!
Girls are soon thronging to The Lonely Hearts Club (named after the Sgt. Pepper's band) and Penny finds herself near legendary for her non-dating ways. Which is too bad. Because the leader of the Lonely Hearts Club has found a certain boy she can't help but like...
Author Elizabeth Eulberg tells a very funny, very relatable romantic comedy for anyone who's ever sworn off love and then found it anyway.
Raves & reviews:
"A must-read for anyone who's ever fallen in love-or sworn it off completely. A funny, fantastic debut!" -Stephenie Meyer, author of The Twilight Series
"It's hard not to get caught up in this good natured revenge fantasy." -The New York Times Book Review
"The Lonely Hearts Club turns the world of teen dating upside-down, proving that a girl can ignore 'the rules' and still land squarely, happily, and hilariously on her feet." -Lauren Myracle, author of ttyl
"Why oh why weren't Penny Lane Bloom and her Lonely Hearts Club around when I was in high school? Penny is a terrific voice-smart, sassy, and full of girl power - just like author Elizabeth Eulberg. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next." -Jen Calonita, author of Secrets of My Hollywood Life
"A delightful coming-of-age story about learning to define yourself without shutting the door on love." -Suzanne Collins, author of The Hunger Games trilogy
