Title: The Avery Shaw Experiment
Author: Kelly Oram
Release Date: May 2013
When Avery Shaw’s heart is shattered by her life-long best friend, she chooses to deal with it the only way she knows how—scientifically.
The state science fair is coming up and Avery decides to use her broken heart as the topic of her experiment. She’s going to find the cure. By forcing herself to experience the seven stages of grief through a series of social tests, she believes she will be able to get over Aiden Kennedy and make herself ready to love again. But she can’t do this experiment alone, and her partner (ex partner!) is the one who broke her heart.
Avery finds the solution to her troubles in the form of Aiden’s older brother Grayson. The gorgeous womanizer is about to be kicked off the school basketball team for failing physics. He’s in need of a good tutor and some serious extra credit. But when Avery recruits the lovable Grayson to be her “objective outside observer,” she gets a whole lot more than she bargained for, because Grayson has a theory of his own: Avery doesn’t need to grieve. She needs to live. And if there’s one thing Grayson Kennedy is good at, it’s living life to the fullest.
Reading this book was so much fun. There is something about the way Kelly writes that draws me in and makes it impossible for me to get anything done until I’ve finished her books. Kelly creates characters and story lines that are so real, so funny & so original that they are unforgettable.
My neighbor stopped by today to return a book she had borrowed. When I asked her how it was she replied she enjoyed it but it was “forgettable” as she’d already started to forget it. I recommended she read The Avery Shaw Experiment and V is for Virgin next as both books have been “unforgettable” reads for me.
There are times when I find myself smiling or laughing when I recall a scene or dialogue from the book. I’m posting 2 teasers on the end of this post so you can get an idea of her writing. I was part of her recent blog tour for this book and had to stop by each site on the tour to read the diary entries because I am so taken with the characters in this book and wanted to read more from them.
My advice… 1st read the content info below then go read the 1st chapter and see if this is for you.
Content: More than I like… more swearing than her previous book and lots of innuendo, crude remarks, etc. Not passing this one on to my 13 at this point but I do admit I loved it.
Rating: This would easily have been a 5 star book for me except for the added content I wish had been left out. There were a couple places where I felt a little “uncomfortable” when reading. I admit, I blush easily and it doesn’t take much to make me uncomfortable and removing maybe a dozen lines from the book would have made it 5 stars in my eyes.
