Summary: Can you fall in love with a voice? This witty romance, told entirely through phone calls, chronicles the tale of a wrong number gone right.
It all started with a wrong number. The voicemails Lucy left on James’s phone were meant for someone else—someone who used to have James’s digits. But then when James finally answers and the two start to talk, a unique bond forms between the two teens.
Gradually Lucy and James begin to understand each other on a deeper level than anyone else in their lives. But when James wants to meet in person, Lucy is strangely resistant. And when her secret is revealed, he’ll understand why…
This was a pretty good idea, but the way it was executed was not really what I was expecting. Hung Up was a pretty cute little “romance” (I use that term very lightly), and the plot was basically nonexistent, but it was sweet.
If you ask me, it was pretty boring.
The characters were pretty flat, there wasn’t much of a plot, the writing was okay– not great but not bad either. I got through most of this book in one sitting (aka my chemistry class), and then I promptly moved on to the next book and forgot all about this one.
Hung Up wasn’t a bad book, just kind of unmemorable and a little boring. Worth a read, though, if you’ve got an hour to spare.
