Review: Miss Fortune Cookie by Lauren Bjorkman

Miss Fortune Cookie

Hardcover
279 Pages
Rating: 4/5








  Miss Fortune Cookie is not the average read. That's why, when Lauren had asked me to review it, I kindly and gladly accepted. The story is about a girl named Erin, who happens to be of Irish descent but grew up knowing and breathing nothing but the roots of China. She wanted to fit in with her best friends and knew that she didn't. In my eyes, Erin also lacked a few social skills, even admitting to not having a boyfriend. Now for the intriguing part. She began a blog, titling it Miss Fortune Cookie. And not letting anyone know who ran it, she started to give advice. It was ran by submitting a question, no matter how big or small and she replied back with an answer to help them out. The answers that Erin replied back with were so knowledgeable, and intelligent, I just loved them! It just amazed me that she was able to help others out with their problems, big or small and over time, started struggling with her own issues and didn't know how to deal with them. What she learns is that keeping secrets isn't always the best thing to do and people will come to accept your decisions and deal with them better if you are honest and open. True friendships never falter.

  1. Is the book made up primarily of blog posts, or is that just a small part of it? Either way, it sounds intriguing.

    1. Hi Matthew! It's a story with blog posts sprinkled in, about 20 in all. I like the idea of a book written entirely in posts, though :-)

    2. Lauren, have you read Save as Draft by Cavanaugh Lee? I think it definitely would qualify as that type of "entirely written in posts" kind of thing. It's brilliant, and I'm dying for a sequel!
