Kidzworld reviews The Cure for Crushes (and Other Deadly Plagues), the hilarious novel by Karen Rivers.

Title: The Cure for Crushes
Author: Karen Rivers
Ages: 9+
Rating: 5


When you first met Haley Harmony in The Healing Time of Hickeys, she was completely obsessed with recording every moment of TGYML on her laptop. Well she's still obsessing, but now she's chronicling TGYML2 (The Greatest Year of My Life, Part Two) in The Cure for Crushes (and Other Deadly Plagues)!

Serial Obsesser

So TGYML2 is off to a great start cuz Haley finally has a boyfriend. He's cute, he's athletic and... he's really nice. Maybe that's why she's just not that into him and finds herself crushin' on every other guy out there, even her best friends' BFs! TGYML2 starts to go seriously downhill, as her serial crushes lead to serial sicknesses (or so she thinks) and serial accidents, from falling into the river while bungee-jumping in a bikini in the winter to running off a cliff during a marathon and breaking her leg! Pretty soon, all she wants is to get the good-haired days to outnumber the bad, which can be difficult for someone who's suffering from hair loss!


Side-Splitting Laughs

We've all had our fair share of red-faced moments, and that's why it's so easy to relate to the accident-prone Haley. Her quirky accidents and comical thoughts are the best part of the book cuz they'll make you laugh until your stomach hurts!


The Bottom Line

If you liked Bridget Jones' Diary (the book, not the flick), then you'll love The Cure for Crushes. Just like Bridget, Haley Harmony is clumsy, sweet and obsessive, and she'll definitely help ya discover the cure for crushes.

What's Your Cure for Crushes?

  • Ignore them.
  • Date them so they're no longer just a crush.
  • Move away so that I never have to see them again.
