Goodreads:

When Penny Lane started The Lonely Hearts Club, the goal was simple: to show that girls didn’t need to define themselves by how guys look at them, and didn’t have to value boyfriends over everything else. Penny thought she’d be an outcast for life…but then the club became far more popular than she ever imagined it would be.

But what happens when the girl who never thought she’d date a good guy suddenly finds herself dating a great one? She doesn’t need a boyfriend… but she wants it to work out with this particular boyfriend. And he wants it to work out with her.

Only, things keep getting in the way. Feelings keep getting hurt. Words keep getting misunderstood.

Penny Lane worked hard to declare her independence. Now she needs to figure out what to do with it — and how to balance what she wants with what everyone else wants. In We Can Work It Out, Elizabeth Eulberg returns to the world of her first novel, The Lonely Hearts Club, and gets to the heart of how hard relationships can be… and why they are sometimes worth all the drama and comedy they create.

My review:

We Can Work It Out (The Lonely Hearts Club, #2)We Can Work It Out by Elizabeth Eulberg

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Elizabeth Eulberg DOES IT AGAIN! You’ll laugh, you’ll swoon, you’ll adore these characters, and she integrates the BEATLES to perfection!!!

Though I do recommend that you read The Lonely Hearts Club first, Elizabeth does a brilliant job of filling in the pieces of what happened in book one.

Wow, where do I start? How about a list of everything I loved about this book:

1. Penny Lane brought me right back to my high school years with the friends, the romance, the drama, the demands of schoolwork, and family. She’s strong, she’s a hard worker, she’s loyal to her friends, she cares deeply to for her boyfriend Ryan and struggles to find her place. As the leader of The Lonely Hearts Club, she empowers girls to stick up for themselves and find boys who will give them the respect they deserve.

2. Ryan: He’s a boyfriend that every teenage girl wishes she had. He’s thoughtful, kind, supportive. He’s smart. But he isn’t perfect. He has to deal with family issues that are extremely painful, and there are times he just doesn’t know how to cope. I love how Elizabeth shows his struggles.

3. As awesome as Penny Lane is, she makes mistakes and choices that aren’t necessarily the best, even though she thinks they are. She pushes herself too hard, she has trouble balancing school, a boyfriend, and The Lonely Hearts Club. Watching her navigate through it all can be funny, sad, painful, and most importantly AUTHENTIC!

4. So many fantastic supporting characters. Love our Aussie! (And for those who have read other novels by Elizabeth, you will be in for a surprise.)

5. This is girl power at its finest! Don’t settle for lying, cheating jerks! What an important message.

6. I mentioned the Beatles earlier. Well, I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing the references are, especially during Penny Lane’s birthday celebrations!

7. Overall, this is such a fantastic feel-good novel. It’s a quick read that I know will appeal to those 12 and up!

Highly recommend.

Thank you so much to the publisher for the ARC!

The FUN!

On January 27th, I attended Elizabeth Eulberg’s book launch with Ally Carter at Books & Company with Heidi from YA Bibliophile.

The next day, I went to the Boswell Books Event:

 

Both events were a ton of fun, and I have to say that most of the time I was laughing so hard that my cheeks hurt. These ladies could do stand-up comedy about authors and writing. Seriously.

Elizabeth is one of those rare individuals who connects to her audience wherever she’s at. I’ve seen her on TV interviews, in person at book signings, and in social events. Without a doubt, what you see is who she is as a person and it reflects beautifully in her novels: funny, interesting, thoughtful, authentic.

Below you’ll see a photo collection of the many faces of Elizabeth. I tried to capture one. Really. But with Elizabeth it was so hard because she has ten thousand expressions (I am only showing you a few). I kept clicking, clicking, clinking. Needless to say, I absolutely adore her!!!
