How to Hook a Hottie by Tina Ferraro (Review)

At 17, Kate Delvecchio has one goal in life: to become a millionaire before the age of 20. And as far as she’s concerned, college will only slow her down. Unfortunately for Kate, the one thing her parents do agree on is that they totally disagree with her strategy. And so the deal is born. If Kate can raise five thousand big ones by graduation day, her parents will hand over the balance of her college account to invest as she pleases. No college, no degree, and no way she’ll ever be able to pull it off. But when Kate accidentally agrees to go to the sports banquet with the hottest guy at school, she stumbles upon a possible cash cow. The rest of the junior class is amazed that no-nonsense Kate could hook such a hottie, and one by one they approach her for help hooking their own. She doesn’t know anything about getting guys, but for $100 a pop, she’s more than willing to invent a six-step plan for How to Hook a Hottie. And how could that possibly backfire?
First thing first, I loved this book because of one reason, this character is exactly almost like me. Well except I want to be a computer teacher but still she's almost the same. Kate is also president of a club I'm really active in at my school so thats a plus. The book was good I liked the idea behind it and the fact that it actually seemed like real high school life made it even better. Tina does a fabulous job capturing high school life and troubled parents into one.

Kate is a serious girl she goes for her dreams and does whats needed. She comes up with the idea to start a match making business in a sense, and starts it with out any problems.  The whole business is for the use of making her parents not send her to college. Then she involves her best friend, Dal in the business so it becomes even better. Dal is a cute awesome boy character, that works for what he wants much like Kate does. His distant relationship with his girlfriend adds a little bit of mystique to his character for me, but in the end I see him as just Dal. There are other characters like Brandon the jerky baseball character who I don't like as much, but your not supposed to like in the first place. And more but they don't really need to be discussed that much.

In the end How to Hook a Hottie is a really cute romantic comedy story. I really enjoyed reading about the characters and the plot and Tina Ferraro does a great. The cover is really creative and I like the whole thing how the artist factors in the fishing hook, it just puts the story together.

There is a really nice detailed summary of Tina's life and about her at randomhouse.com. I don't want to butcher the nicely done summary so here is the link.
