This chick lit book by Meg Cabot is told exclusively in emails, instant messages, and even receipts. Melissa takes care of her elderly neighbor's apartment while her neighbor is in the hospital. She frequently encounters the neighbor's nephew, Max, who she's been warned is a notorious ladies man. Mel thinks Max does not live up to his reputation, but she finds out he may not be who he appears. This book was a lot of fun, mostly due to the format. Cabot has a couple of other books in the series including Boy Next Door. You may know Cabot for her popular Princess Diaries series. I also enjoyed her YA novel All-American Girl about a girl who accidentally saves the president's life and then falls for his son.
