Book Reviews by: Book Talk Reviews
okay First of I have to say.. Bahahahaha! 
This book was Fantastic! it was so funny at times I had a few tears escape. The main character is 17 teen year old Gilbert Garfinkle and he's a total dork!. His mother is a cold hearted money grubber who treats him like crap. Gilbert(or Gil) is sweet and funny but like i said,he's a total nerd,he has his whole life planed out,except for Amber who flips his whole world upside down.This story had me hooked,I was constantly guessing what was going to happen next. It was heard for me to put the book down,and I was a little sad it had to end. If you like the show (The Big Bang Theory) while is mentioned a few times in the book, you are going to LOVE this book. I can't wait till book 2. If you like a good Vampire book that makes you laugh then I totall suggest you go out and grab a copy of this book. I give it a 5 out of 5.

Author Bio:    

I've always been super geeky about comedy, fantasy and science fiction.

When I was little, I'd take them apart and analyze them, kind of like what Gilbert Garfinkle--the hero of Why My Love Life Sucks--does with electronics. This continued into my college years, when I majored in English Literature and Theater Studies.

For twelve years I worked in magazines and newspapers as an editorial cartoonist, illustrator, editor, arts-and-entertainment writer (specializing in children's entertainment and, of course, comedy), and a consumer columnist.

My last job was at the Jerusalem Post, but I had to quit when my family decided to move to New Jersey to pursue better education options for my autistic son.

This was in February 2001. Since then I've written 40 picture books and seven novels for kids and teens, four of which I've indie published. I was an ABNA quarterfinalist with Why My Love Life Sucks, and I won third place in SmartWriter's Write It Now contest in the the YA category (which was judged by Alex Flinn, the author of Beastly) for my romantic, YA ghost story, Ride of Your Life.
