Synopsis: It’s the summer before senior year and Polly Martin has sworn off boys. Who needs the hurt and confusion? Five recent breakups have left her with an unnatural knowledge of NASCAR, the ultimate hiker’s outfit, a student council position, the sixth highest score on the Donkey Kong machine at the mall, and a summer job at Wild Waves with ex #2 Sawyer Holmes.
Success seems a sure thing when Polly’s grandmother, the syndicated advice columnist, Miss Swoon, moves in for the summer. Polly almost doesn’t mind sharing a room with her little sister, Grace. Think of all the great advice she’ll get! Everything is going according to plan except... Miss Swoon turns out to be a man-crazy septuagenarian! And then there’s Xander Cooper. If only he wouldn’t keep showing up at Wild Waves with his adorable cousins every afternoon — and what is he writing in that little notebook? No advice column in the world can prepare Polly for the lessons she learns when she goes on a group camping trip (with three too many ex-boyfriends). Polly is forced to see people for who they are — a blend of good and bad qualities that can’t be reduced to a list or a snappy answer in a Miss Swoon column.
I loved My Big Nose And Other Natural Disasters, so I HAD to check out this novel (i dont want to read Jungle Crossing, not my type) And Swoon At Your Own Risk is really, really good :P It was a cute novel, that is really a chick novel. So guys, you probably wont like it. Unless you enjoy pools, drama, and boys :P (this is not saying you wont enjoy FORGET YOU, thats a whole other story :P) It honestly, (in my opinion) was ranged for 12-15 year old girls. It had that cute fluffy drama they enjoy, it had the sweet obvious romance they all LIVE for. I mean other than those things, I enjoyed the book. :)
