Synopsis

An Order of Amelie, Hold the Fries by Nina Schindler

An ultra-modern teen love story. Seventeen-year-old Tim is smitten when he glimpses the girl of his dreams. But who is she? When her name and address falls from her bag, he can't believe his luck. Tim boldly writes to his fantasy woman. But to his surprise, the address belongs to someone else: Amelie. She writes Tim back to say she's hardly the girl he spotted: she's not beautiful, she's two years his senior, and she's as good as engaged. Intrigued by her wit, and pumped by the challenge, Tim tries to convince Amelie to meet him. A series of humorous and sarcastic exchanges begin. Through emails and letters, scratchings on take-out containers, and scrawlings on news clippings, the relationship grows. The unstoppable energy and optimism in the letters are conveyed through the inventive lay-out devoting one page to each message. An Order of Amelie, Hold the Fries is the Griffin and Sabine for teens.

Reviews

In an attractive, entertaining, and unusual novel, characters are distinctive and the story is upbeat... told through an ultra-modern textual presentation that will appeal to romance readers and those how prefer slim books.--Tina Frolund VOYA (04/01/2005)
