Accidental LOVE

Gary Soto


It all starts when Marisa picks up the wrong cell phone. When she returns it to Rene, she feels curiously drawn to him. But Marisa and Rene aren't exactly a match made in heaven. For one thing, Marisa is a "chola"; she's a lot of girl, and she's not ashamed of it. Skinny Rene gangles like a sackful of elbows and wears a calculator on his belt. In other words, he's a geek.

I recommend this book because it relates to people that I know. Its always good to connect with people in books. This book is romantic and most people love romantic books. Most people love this book when I read the reviews but, me on the other hand I didn't really because I don't really understand why the title is Accidental LOVE? for the most part it was fun to read but I probably wouldn't read the text again.
