Gr 9 Up—What do you do when you need money or you are simply looking for love? Join a college Psych survey and see firsthand if love can be engineered! Hildy and Paul, aka Betty and Bob, come from two different worlds with secrets they haven't shared with anyone. The undergrads sign up and get paid $40 by their local university for completeing a 36-question quiz to see if they will fall in love. Will "The Experimental Generation of Interpersonal Closeness" in the Personality & Social Psychology Bulletin bring them together? Hildy is an idealistic romantic and Paul is the jaded skeptic. The two college students attempt to answer the questionnaire via text, IM, email, and old-fashioned face-to-face Q&A. Yet family, snowstorms, and communication breakdowns could prevent this relationship from taking off. The novel implores readers to think about their own truths and uncover what really gets in the way of our own romances. This would make a great choice for teens seeking romance titles, or reluctant readers who are drawn to the novel's unique format.
VERDICT A fun selection for romance fans that could find a place in most large YA collections.
