Very sweet teen life/romance book. I enjoyed it tremendously and it almost had me in tears at one point. You will fall in love with the main characters and dislike those whom you should. I personally would have taken the father and stepmom to the woodshed to give them the beatings they deserved. Sad to say that there are people just like them in this world... and worse, of course. But the book was well worth reading.

Love this book, it is very romantic which suits a helpless romantic llike myself!! The only negative thing that I have to say is that the love problems don't resolve themselves until the very end and the reasons people don't get together sooner are pretty annoying. But if you like Jane Austen you will like this book!

I loved the plot of this book. I couldn't stop smiling. The acrostic poem was sooo adorable!!! (Those who have read the book will know what I mean) Parr is like my dream boyfriend <3

I am so excited to read this. I have not actually read it yet, but loved Mrs. Shulman's other book, called 'The Grimm Legacy', and it was GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously, check it out. You won't be sorry. If 'Enthusiasm' is half as good as 'The Grimm Legacy', I am sure I will love it!
POST ONE. WILL UPDATE ONCE I GET AND FINISH 'ENTHUSIASM'.

Pre-teen to adult - Good clean fun. Recommended to Meg Cabot fans, Twilight Series fans (for the romance/love triangles) or, of course, Jane Austen fans.

You don't have to a Jane Austen fan to enjoy this clever, ultimately cheerful coming of age story. As the title suggests, it is full of enthusiasm, but not so much as to become irritating. It's easy to identify with the problems of the main character, Julie: parents, boys, school. It's a standard crop of issues, but Julie's voice is so appealing and fresh that it doesn't matter.

Really funny! I like Polly Shulman's writing style and found the book to be really fun and at some parts I was laughing out loud. Too bad she hasn't written more...
