Stupid Cupid by Rhonda Stapleton
Felicity's no ordinary teen matchmaker...she's a cupid!
Felicity Walker believes in true love. That's why she applies for a gig at the matchmaking company Cupid's Hollow. But when Felicity gets the job, she learns that she isn't just a matchmaker...she's a cupid! (There's more than one of them, you know.)
Armed with a hot pink, tricked-out PDA infused with the latest in cupid magic (love arrows shot through email), Felicity works to meet her quota of successful matches. But when she bends the rules of cupidity by matching her best friend Maya with three different boys at once, disaster strikes. Felicity needs to come up with a plan to set it all right, pronto, before she gets fired and before Maya ends up with her heart split in three. [summary from Goodreads]
I've heard Rhonda Stapleton described as a fantastic and pee-in-your pants, split-your-guts-out hilarious writer, and this sounds like a fun concept that can be made heartfelt and memorable at the hands of a talented writer, so I'm interested to read this! Occasionally I just want a fun and light, but still SMART, read. This one sounds like it could be that, what with a rule-breaking protagonist and a multi-male love snafu. Sign me up, please!
Stupid Cupid is the first of a series, and will be released in paperback by Simon Pulse on December 22, 2009.
And now, back to the hole of hectic schoolwork I go. Sigh...
