I was so excited when I received an email from the library letting me know the copy of Stupid Cupid by Rhonda Stapleton I requested had arrived! After a couple months of reading Rhonda's Tweets, I knew the book would be fun and couldn't wait to read it.
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.
Modern day cupids? What a fun idea! And this book was entertaining from beginning to end.
Felicity is a lovable character with a great sense of humor and a good heart. I laughed out loud more than once at the shenanigans she got herself into as she made matches at her high school and at home!
Her friends Andy and Maya were great, too. After reading so many books where teenage girls revolve their entire existence around boys, it was refreshing to see girls with distinct personalities and interests. They were just like the friends I had in high school.
In fact, I wish the characters were real so we could hang out.
I can't wait to see what happens next in Flirting With Disaster (March 9) and Pucker Up (May 18)! I hope Felicity gets to be on the receiving end of one of cupid's love arrows.
If you're looking for a light, amusing book to read this Valentine's Day, you should definitely check out Stupid Cupid!
