    One thought on “The Unwritten Rule

    1. Yaz *The Reading Girl*

      Everyone knows the unwritten rule: You don’t like your best friend’s boyfriend.Wow! The Unwritten Rule was just awesome! Five Stars all the way! I checked it out from the library yesterday and finished it yesterday. I was unable to put it down. It was a work of magic. It was WAY better than Something Like Fate by Susane Colasanti which is a much similar story. Mostly because of the way it was written and because it was much more realistic. Some topics I thought this book was about: friendshi [...]

      The Unwritten Rule is my third Elizabeth Scott book and my least favorite out of the three (the other two are Living Dead Girl and Love You Hate You Miss You which deal with sexual abuse and death respectively).The book can be summarized very briefly: Sarah and Brianna are best friends, Brianna is dating Ryan, Sarah likes Ryan, and Ryan wants to be with Sarah too. Will the girls' friendship survive the squabble over the guy? The main problem with this book is that it is very simplistic, there ar [...]

      well, the whole behind the back kissing and sort-of flirting is not my kind of thing. i can see understand how sarah fell in love with ryan. but how about a little self-control? it's okay to crush on someone from afar, but not if he or she's not "single ready to mingle". sarah's not the only one at fault though!seriously? two months? he seriously needed nearly two months time to make up his freakin' mind? ryan should have broken up his relationship with brianna a long time ago. he didn't do that [...]

      2.5 starsWithout a doubt, Elizabeth Scott has a beautifully honed voice for young adult literature. She writes both accessibly and perceptively about the teenage experience and its accompanying emotions. It’s an unembellished, authentic style that neither sensationalises nor talks down to young adult issues. The Unwritten Rule is no exception, clearly capturing the straightforward, yet earnest voice of Sarah, in the midst of an “I like my best friend’s boyfriend” situation. Not to mince [...]

    5. Janina

      One thing right at the beginning: I’m a huge fan of Elizabeth Scott. So this rating might be influenced a tiny bit by that ;). All in all, I really enjoyed The Unwritten Rule, but when compared to Scott’s other YA romance novels, it is probably the weakest. It was a quick read and definitely kept my attention, but it wasn’t particularly memorable when I look back at it now. I probably won’t go back to re-read it as I’ve done with Bloom, Perfect You or Something Maybe and it doesn’t h [...]

      2.5 starsElizabeth Scott has a great voice for teenagers. She seems to be able to effortlessly get right under their skin and articulate those swirly/confused/intense emotions that plague teens (in The Unwritten Rule she centres around friendship, loyalty (mostly misplaced) and having a crush.)Her prose is easy to slip into. The style of The unwritten Rule most reminded me of Something, Maybe ~ it has the same kind of quirky, occasionally self-depreciating tone. There's a gentle humour that lift [...]

      WARNINGS: I read this book in just a few short hours. I literally couldn't stop reading. You will definitely want to read this book.First off, it's very easy to connect with Sarah. We have probably all been in similar situations, whether we were the friend who had the crush on the spoken for boyfriend or the girl who had the boyfriend. It was, for me, also very easy to relate to Brianna. She had problems with her parents that just made her cry and wonder who loved her. But Brianna, I just didn't [...]

    8. Heather

      Sarah is 17 and lives in the shadow of her beautiful, shallow best frienemy Brianna. Best friends since they were five, Sarah couldn't imagine life without Brianna, but lately, Sarah has been having some decidedly un-friendly thoughts about Ryan, Brianna's current boyfriend. Sarah has wanted Ryan before Brianna was willing to acknowledge his existence, but now, Brianna's got him, or does she? And did she ever? The Unwritten Rule makes for a cutesy love story, but more than anything, its a coming [...]

      I’ve been looking for lighter and fluffier YA books since the doom and gloom YA’s have been giving me a headache. I think it’s this sense of déjà vu with the plots since every single synopsis I’ve read about the YA’s coming out seems all the same. So when I heard pretty good reviews about The Unwritten Rule by Elizabeth Scott, I thought why not give it a chance? I’ve read the Living Dead Girl by her, and although I wasn’t too impressed with that book, The Unwritten Rule is a very [...]

      Sarah liked Ryan first. But it's her best friend Brianna that's dating Ryan. Sarah should be the good friend and back off, but she just can't stop liking Ryan. Whatever shall she do?! (Yes, my tone is slightly mocking.)The story is simple enough. In fact, too simple. It's another one of those books where it's just a love story and that's it. Nothing else happens. There's nothing deep about family or even friendship. In fact, the crazy friendship was what kept me going because it was the only dra [...]

    11. ~Tina~

      The Unwritten Rule is a classic story of girl likes best friends boyfriend and he likes her.To be honest I wasn't sure what I was expecting before I got into this one, thinking that the girl just betrayed her best friend and hooked up with her boyfriend. But as the story went on I realized that Brianna is NOT a best friend.Okay, I know that what Sarah did wasn't right and I don't think cheating is okay, at all, but I think this was the first time I actually applauded it. I can't find myself cari [...]

    12. Erin K

      The Unwritten Rule should be a requirement for girls all throughout high school to read. This storyline is very raw and realistic. Through the main character, Sarah, Elizabeth Scott narates the consequences of when a girl falls for the boy she's never supposed to like. The one that "belongs" to her best friend.The toxic friendship between Sarah and Brianna is made obvious several times, especially at the times when Brianna acts as though she's really helping Sarah while putting down her physical [...]

      Rating Clarification: 3.5 StarsThe Unwritten Rule by Elizabeth Scott is a fun and refreshing read. I was amazed at how this author could seamlessly pen a novel that is on such a different spectrum than her daunting book Living Dead Girl. The Unwritten Rule carries a pleasant tone and refreshing theme that YA romance readers can enjoy with ease.In this book, Sarah is head over heels for Ryan and has been since the eight grade. Unfortunately, they get eaten by dinosaurs he is dating her best frien [...]

      When I first saw this book, it looked charming. Nothing earth-shattering, of course, but charming.This book is about Sarah, the shy best friend of the beautiful Brianna. Sarah has always done her best to be the perfect friend for Brianna, whether its being there when Brianna's parents screw up again or just making Brianna feel needed. But one thing is threatening their friendship: Sarah seriously likes Brianna's boyfriend, Ryan, and that feeling is only magnified when Ryan and her kiss. Now Sara [...]

    15. Liza Gilbert

      This is an example of a book that should be thrown across the room with great force. It started out fairly well. Scott's writing flows easily enough and the voice is true to the teen years. I was able to put up with Sarah's angst throughout the book, because many teens are in that (or similar) situation(s) in high school. I could put up with Brianna because of her crappy home life. She was bound to be damaged beyond all measure. Ryan, however, was despicable because he knew what needed to be don [...]

      totally unexpected turn of events 4.5 stars n this book was good i mean not the other cliche stuff people who like love traingles should definately try this !!

    17. The BookWhisperer

      First reading the book description I was anticipating a love story of sorts with the best friend falling in love with the her friends boyfriend. What I found in reading this novel was so much more. The main character of Briana is a holy terror; who would even want a friend like this. She is a character that coins the phrase looks better at twenty yards than at five yards. She may appear to be beautiful and wonderful, but upon closer inspection she is rude and conceited beyond your wildest dreams [...]

      Quickie: Not a bad story, wasn't pleased with the babbly-writing though.Full: Sarah likes Ryan. Brianna is Sarah's best friend. Ryan and Brianna are dating. Ryan likes Sarah back. Ouch.The plot is a simple one, but it's very real and fraught with emotion and pain. Sarah has liked Ryan since the 8th grade, but somehow her best friend Brianna ended up dating him. If I had to classify Sarah and Brianna's friendship, I'd call it "The Garden" kind of friendship. Sarah is the gardner, never seen, but [...]

      I liked him first, but it doesn't matter. I still like him. That doesn't matter either. Or at least, it's not supposed to. What to say about The Unwritten Rule? It's a story both sour and sweet. About weighing the options and consequences when there shouldn't be an option. Because the thing is, you do not like your best friend's boyfriend. You don't have a thing for him. You don't look at him and wish he'd been with you instead. That's just the way it is, isn't it? It's in this position our MC S [...]

      Reading Perfect You is sad, reading this book is sadder. I lost count on how many times my tears shed, it was really a sad read. I understand the feeling of being in one's shadow, but at least I didn't always get reminded of that. Brianna is a b****, and I don't get why Sarah would tolerate her, yes I pitied her because her parents treated her as a 'thing', shoving her aside and not loving her, but she is doing exactly what her parents are doing to her by doing it to Sarah, only in a more 'discr [...]

    22. Rachael

      It doesn’t matter that Sarah liked Ryan first. It doesn’t matter that she still does, because Ryan is Brianna’s girlfriend and Brianna is Sarah’s best friend. Sarah is not the type of girl to break the unspoken rule of not liking your best friend’s boyfriend. Instead, she pushes her feeling down deep and concentrates on avoiding Ryan and being a supportive friend to Brianna. But Sarah can’t suppress her emotions forever, especially when she finds herself together with Ryan—alone. W [...]

    23. Maria

      I like The Unwritten Rule.*****I know who I want to be with, and it isn’t her.I liked how the story started out, but halfway through I was getting riled up over Sarah and her constant inner turmoil. It has a good premise, considering the cliche of the plot, but the abrupt ending irked the little patience left in me.Sarah and Ryan had a (kind of) history. And i really liked this part because it goes to show that Sarah didn’t just like Ryan on-the-spot, when he started going out with Brianna. [...]

      I really am disappointed. When I read "The Unwritten Rule," I feel like I'm watching "Something Borrowed" all over again. Still it has one humongous difference in it; that's fun. There is no fun in this book at all as boring as hell. The story is like something I don't expect at all. I think I it must be fresh and fun; however, it doesn't. FYI, I really dig this type of story but not in this book. "The Unwritten Rule" is focused on love triangle between Ryan, Sarah and Brianna and in my opinion [...]

      Sarah has been best friends with Brianna since they met in kindergarten and Brianna saved Sarah from the clutches of a five-year-old Mean Girl. Ever since, Sarah has been Brianna's sidekick. But there's one thing Sarah's never told Brianna - how she feels about Brianna's boyfriend Ryan. Sarah has liked Ryan since the eighth grade, but now Ryan and Brianna are together and Sarah knows that she can never tell Brianna her true feelings. Except that Ryan and Sarah kissed. And now Sarah's falling har [...]

      So, as usual, I loved this book. I'll probably do a blog review of it soon. Seriously, how can one woman (Elizabeth Scott) write so many amazing books back to back to back???I loved the voice here. Sarah was so real, and Ryan, the boy in the middle of this awkward friendship love triangle, is so desireable that you totally understand where Sarah is coming from. All the character felt real and I loved every word of this book - even when it wasn't happy.I think I can safely say I will love everyth [...]

      Took me a while to get in to this one, but it was worth it in the end. The last few chapters were excellent and the underlying meanings through the book was something I really liked.

      I remember wanting to read this book so bad and finally when I got it I wasn't disappointed. It was great!

      If you love and kiss your best friend's boyfriend behind her back, then you're poor excuse of a human being. It really doesn't matter that you "saw" him first.

    30. Jess F. (From Me to You ... Book Reviews)

      "4 out of 5 stars! This novel keeps your attention the whole way through. Definitely shows a side of girl friendships that you rarely see. Since we always read or watch in movies these girls who have it all with their little sidekick best friend, but you don't always hear about the best friend's version of what goes on between them or why she really puts up with what she does, and I think this book beautifully displays it.
