Review: The Loser's Guide to Life and Love by A.E. Cannon

Book: The Loser's Guide to Life and Love by A.E. Cannon

Genre: YA Romance

Rating: A

For: Fun!

I bought this book from the author herself when she came to visit our library this summer. She was wonderful and the book sounded so funny, so you know, I was a goner!

This story is fun modern re-telling of A Midsummer Night's Dream. There's this boy and girl who are best buddies and work at a video store together. While waiting for his own badge to be made, the boy has to wear a name badge that says Sergio, obviously not his name. But when a cute girl comes into the store that he instantly falls in love with, he pretends like it IS his name and that he has an exotic past. Meanwhile, his friend (the one that's a girl) is falling in love too, and his other friend (the one that's a boy) joins the fun and falls in love. Everyone gets all mixed up with who is who and who loves who! It's hilarious! I loved it! Yet another cute teen romance to devour in a day.


  1. I'm so in the mood for a funny book. Thanks for the suggestion!

  2. This looks so cute. I like, maybe even prefer, adaptations like this from famous other stories. The library didn't have it, they had another by this author though. Maybe the school library will have it. I should let our librarian know, it might be good to have on the shelves.

    Did you count it for your YA Romance challenge? You should.

  3. That looks cute, I might have to add it to my wish list.
