Review: Seth Baumgartner's Love Manifesto (Luper)

Title: Seth Baumgartner's Love Manifesto
Author: Luper
Genre: Fiction, Humor
Pages: 288
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

I have been looking for another funny "boy" book since last year's favorite, "Swim the Fly."  Seth Baumgartner to the rescue!  I included this as one of my "Top 10 Summer Reading" titles for 9th graders this year.

Seth just had the worst day of his life: His girlfriend dumped him while he was on his lunch break, he saw his father on a date with a woman who is not his mother (while being dumped), and he just lost his fourth job of the year (because he was late getting back from being dumped).  To deal with the craziness that is his life, Seth starts an anonymous podcast called The Love Manifesto, exploring “what love is, why love is, and why we’re stupid enough to keep going back for more.”  If you've ever been in love, if you've ever been dumped, or you just want a funny summer read, Seth is your guy.
