Fiction. Romance. HTML:

Meet Kate Mackenzie. She:

  • works for the T.O.D. (short for Tyrannical Office Despot, also known as Amy Jenkins, Director of the Human Resources Division at the New York Journal)
  • Is sleeping on the couch because her boyfriend of ten years refuses to commit
  • Can't find an affordable studio apartment anywhere in New York City
  • Thinks things can't get any worse

They can. Because:

  • The T.O.D. is making her fire the most popular employee in the paper's senior staff dining room
  • That employee is now suing Kate for wrongful termination, and
  • Now Kate has to give a deposition in front of Mitch Hertzog, the scion of one of Manhattan's wealthiest law families, who embraces everything Kate most despises...but also happens to have a nice smile and a killer bod.

The last thing anybody -- least of all Kate Mackenzie -- expects to find in a legal arbitration is love. But that's the kind of thing that can happen when...Boy Meets Girl.

The stories in Meg Cabot's Boy series are told through a series of emails, journal entries, and other various scraps. This allows the reader to view events through various perspectives, which is particularly helpful in this book, because the deuteragonist is keeping a secret from the protagonist. Though I usually really enjoy reading Cabot's work, despite the predictable and typically obvious plot-lines, this book was less enjoyable. It read like any other disaster chick-lit book: boy agrees to keep someone's secret, boy meets girl, boy falls for girl, secret stands in the way, girl finds out secret, girl hates boy, boy does something amazing, girl loves boy. The ending also felt a little hasty and contrived. ( )

I have been a fan of Meg Cabot's books for quite some time and I enjoyed this one very much. I did notice that it was written in her usual style of first person, but since it was written in the format of email exchanges and IM's and journal entries, it was to be expected. Besides, it allows for numerous misunderstandings to crop up, which is common with her novels.

I did notice a few things which I found confusing. In some of the instances of the IM conversations, only one screen name was used instead of two, which had been used before. It made it slightly difficult to determine who was speaking. ( )

Fluffy, fluffy, fluffy! Told through a mix of journal entries, instant messages, notes on scrap paper, voice mails, etc, Cabot allows the reader put the pieces together herself. It's not a very difficult puzzle, but the gimmick is sort of fun. Summer reading at it's best. I did sort of miss "witnessing" actually encounters. The ENTIRE story is told in the aforementioned manner, none of it is told through regular conversations. Interesting, but not overly sustainable (although this is the second in a "series," I see!)
