REVIEWS

Praise for Isabelle's Boyfriend

“Taryn’s first-person present-tense narrative is funny and self-deprecating and is filled with details about getting ready for dates and school dances. The home scenes are entertaining, too: irritable Taryn is even jealous of the family poodle, who gets so much attention from her newly divorced mom.

“The author knows how to take true-to-life characters and set them up for an awesome plot. . . . [A] humor-, anticipation-, and hope-packed book.”—Voice of Youth Advocates
