I recently finished reading The Boy Next Door by Meg Cabot. Over the years I have probably read a ton of Meg Cabot books and yet nearly every time I go into a bookstore I resist picking up a book from her because of the way I think people will judge me for reading her books. Granted she writes for both young adults and adults it is probably I just need to suck up and get over.
The book is an amazing read that keeps you turning pages. When I first saw the format of the book I was a little worried because it was written in all emails from the characters to one another, but after reading it I found that it was effectively used and was a refreshing change of pace. The use of email also shows you the power email an email can have and how just like in letters punctation and grammar are also important.
