Book Review #167 - 7 Clues to Winning You by Kristin Walker

7 Clues to Winning You

When a humiliating picture of Blythe goes viral, she's instantly the target of ridicule at her new school. To salvage her reputation, Blythe teams up with Luke to win the Senior Scramble scavenger hunt. But Luke is an unlikely ally and potentially can't be trusted.

Perhaps it's his Shakespearean witticisms that reel Blythe in despite her better judgment . . . or maybe she just craves the thrill of the game. But as the hunt progresses, their relationship heats up. Soon their madcap mischief spirals out of control. Blythe is faced with arrest and expulsion, among other catastrophes - until Luke shows her what the Scramble (and love) is really about.

My Rating: 4/5

I decided to read this book because I had been sick with the flu and wanted something light to ease me back into reading. I read this book in less than a day because I found it fast paced and very captivating.

Blythe, the protagonist at first seemed uptight and shallow but over the course of the novel as she develops she becomes alot more likeable.

I really liked the inclusion of the old ladies in the retirement home. They were the funniest part in the book.

The romance aspect felt cliched and predictable (especially the ending), although there was definitely chemistry between them.

I would recommend this for anyone who liked Anna and the French Kiss.

  1. I loved the old ladies; they and the goth couple were my two favorite sections because each pair was so in sync with each other and able to give Blythe great advice and help!
