Can anyone be truly herself--or truly in love--in a language that's not her own?
Sixteen-year-old Josie lives her life in translation. She speaks High School, College, Friends, Boyfriends, Break-ups, and even the language of Beautiful Girls. But none of these is her native tongue--the only people who speak that are her best friend Stu and her sister Kate. So when Kate gets engaged to an epically insufferable guy, how can Josie see it as anything but the mistake of a lifetime? Kate is determined to bend Josie to her will for the wedding; Josie is determined to break Kate and her fiancé up. As battles are waged over secrets and semantics, Josie is forced to examine her feelings for the boyfriend who says he loves her, the sister she loves but doesn't always like, and the best friend who hasn't said a word--at least not in a language Josie understands.
Love and Other Foreign Words by Erin McCahan is a quirky young-adult novel that I really enjoyed. Josie is smart, funny and full of one-liners that had me laughing out loud. The story was fast-paced and I just loved it. The dialogue was witty and just never quit. Josie and Stu were great characters. I disliked Geoff throughout the story as much as Josie did. Other than him, the other characters in the book were just as enjoyable as Jose and Stu. Love and Other Foreign Words by Erin McCahan was truly hilarious and well worth the read.
