What do you do when your own love life is in shambles? According to Lucas, you're supposed to use your gifts to hook up other people who are unlucky in love. And that is what he does. Lucas is gay, and doesn't mind that everyone in his high school knows it. What he does mind is that the guy he is trying to set his best friend Cate up with is actually showing more attention to him than to her! And what's worse, he is also falling for the chiseled soccer player as well. As Lucas tries to navigate the fine line between friendships and relationships, he finds that hooking up is easy, but love is where things get complicated. This book is really not even a book; it hardly has a plot and it relys on shallow stereotypes of gays as only having girls for friends and only being able to watch other people have successful relationships. I haven't been so disgruntled reading a book since I turned the pages on a Lurlene McDaniels novel. The situations presented in the book are just awkward; the author has no sense of flow or presence. Don't read this book, if you can help it.
