The Libby Garrett Intervention | Kelly Oram | Review

By Vera Carregueira - 14:23

Libby Garrett is addicted to Owen Jackson's hot lovin'. But the sexy, popular college basketball player doesn't appreciate all of Libby's awesomeness. He refuses to be exclusive or even admit to people that they're dating. The relationship is ruining Libby and she's the only one who can't see it. 
When Libby's behavior spirals completely out of control, her best friend Avery Shaw and the rest of the Science Squad stage an intervention hoping to cure Libby of her harmful Owen addiction. They put her through her very own Twelve Step program—Owen's Anonymous—and recruit the help of a sexy, broody, hard as nails coffee man to be her official sponsor...

Adam Koepp has watched Libby Garrett for years. How could he not notice the sassy girl with the purple skateboard and helmet plastered with cat stickers? But in all the years he's crushed on her, Libby has failed to take notice of him. Why would she when he was just a nobody high school drop out who served her apple cider several times a week? Especially when she was hooking up with a guy like Owen Jackson—a guy with a college scholarship and more abs than Kyle Hamilton. 
Adam finally gets the chance to meet Libby when his co-worker Avery Shaw recruits him to take Libby on the journey of a lifetime. With his ability to play Bad Cop and his experience with theTwelve Step program he's the perfect candidate to be Libby's sponsor. But will he be able to keep his personal feelings out of the matter and really help her the way she needs? And will Libby hate him when he forces her to take an honest look at herself? 
This follow-up companion novel to The Avery Shaw Experiment can be read as a stand alone. 
(But where's the fun in that?) ;)
First of all, I have to take a second to say OMG this book is so great in so many ways that I don't even know if I can say everthing that makes it an awesome reading. Kelly Oram just nailed it and now I just want to read all of her books, that is how amazed I am by this reading.

Libby is an overwheight girl with low self-esteem that is stuck in an abusive relationship with a college hottie. It's Adam that is going to help her get out of that relationship treating her as if she was an addict, as he believes that Libby was addicted to Owen. It's really hard to talk about Adam, he's such a great character, we just get involve in his life and problems. I read The Avery Shaw Experiment after this book and I would never believed that Owen turned out to be this way, they were so funny together.

The chapters changes between Libby and Adam POV and once again the author made a great work giving them distinct voices. They are amazing characters, very well written with so many emotions, it is teen drama at its best. The plot is solid with well-developed characters and the pace embraces us in a way that is hard to put down the book.

Although this book can be read as a stand-alone, it makes so much sense to read The Avery Shaw Experiment first, especially if we read them one after the other. Kelly Orams' writing is fantastic, she can makes us feel like we are crossing an ocean of feelings in every chapter. The way the plot flows letting us gradually discover the characters inviting us to witness their joys and sorrows  made me realize that Kelly Oram was one of the best authors I've discovered this year. Both books in the Science Squad have a nice message about what really matters in life.
