Mini-Review: Sean Griswold's Head by Lindsey Leavitt

Sean Griswold's Head
Lindsey Leavitt
Bloomsbury USA Children's Books
[March 1, 2011]
According to her guidance counselor, fifteen-year-old Payton Gritas needs a focus object-an item to concentrate her emotions on. It's supposed to be something inanimate, but Payton decides to use the thing she stares at during class: Sean Griswold's head. They've been linked since third grade (Griswold-Gritas-it's an alphabetical order thing), but she's never really known him.

The focus object is intended to help Payton deal with her father's newly diagnosed multiple sclerosis. And it's working. With the help of her boy-crazy best friend Jac, Payton starts stalking-er, focusing on-Sean Griswold . . . all of him! He's cute, he shares her Seinfeld obsession (nobody else gets it!) and he may have a secret or two of his own.

In this sweet story of first love, Lindsey Leavitt seamlessly balances heartfelt family moments, spot-on sarcastic humor, and a budding young romance.

This was just a really cute read. I loved Sean because he was this sweet guy. Payton was a little out there, a little crazy, but in that lovable way. Her best friend was also awesome in helping with this. And Sean's best friends made me laugh. The writing was enjoyable and it was a pretty quick read. 

It was fun, light, romantic, and somewhat realistic. I really enjoyed reading it.
