[Book Review] The Guys Are Props Club by Ingrid Seymour

The Guys Are Props ClubGuys Are Props Club
Ingrid Seymour
During her senior year in high school, Maddie Burch promised herself not to ever fall for a cute guy – or any guy – again. Cute guys are players and not to be trusted, a fact she learned the hard way when her first boyfriend ran her heart through a paper shredder. Two years later, her promise is still intact, and she’s determined to make it through college without falling victim to another creep. She has her job, school and The Guys Are Props Club to keep her mind and hormones in check.

The club was founded by Jessica, Maddie’s best friend. It is a sisterhood of girls who have fallen prey to heartless jerks and who have vowed to turn the tables. Once a semester, Jessica requires members to “do onto others as they’ve done unto you.” Setting the example, Jessica’s next play is Sebastian Capello, a theater major with heartthrob looks and a flair for Latin dance, whose heart she plans to break the way hers was once broken.

What the friends don’t know is that Sebastian is different. Despite his perfect looks and popularity, he’s not a jerk. He doesn’t play games to get his way. Instead, he keeps it real and goes after what he wants with honest intentions. And what he wants is not a bombshell like Jessica, but a down-to-earth girl like Maddie – even if it causes a riff in the girl’s friendship. Even if it means getting Maddie to break her personal vow.

Maddie Burch promised to herself that she will not fall for any guy ever again. But unlike any other high school girls, she actually stuck to her promise. Even when Maddie goes to college, she is still true to her promise and is going to make sure that she keeps it that way. She also has a club that she and her best friend made, The Guys Are Props club, where boys are nothing but a toy to those girls and nobody is going to stop them. That is until Maddie meets a guy that is different and might just melt her heart away.

There are so many books that are all the same. Girls meets boy, boy is a jerk, girl cries, etc.. The Guys Are Props Club is completely different book where girls are actually the ones that have all the rules and are players. This was a quick and enjoyable read. I really like the characters and thought that they are relatable and strong.
