Good

I haven’t read any of the other books in the Wolfe brother’s series, and I don’t really think there is any particular order to them. Cameron Wolfe is so sincere and adorable; I really couldn’t put this book down because I had to know how things would turn out for him. It’s a beautiful love story intertwined with Cam trying to find his part in life.

A touching, heartrending tale of brotherhood

Reader reviewed by Alyssa

Getting the Girl is about more than just a girl. Its about a boy, his brother and a desire to be somebody. Cameron is the shy one, who lingers in the shadow of his charismatic older brother, Ruben Wolfe. Ruben is good at everything, good at sports, good at getting the girl. Camerons perfectly content to remain in the shadows until Octavia comes& Camerons finally found the girl. The only problem-the girl is going out with Ruben. The author adds in many subplots including Cams relationship to his brother, Steve. Indeed, Markus Zusak is a skilled writer who shapes Cameron in such a way that anyone, girl or boy, can relate to him. Getting the Girl is just as beautiful as his other books and definitely a must read.

not that great

Reader reviewed by Leah



I honestly didn't like the story very much because it was a weird story. I couldn't really follow what was going on. The main character likes his brothers girlfriend, after they break up, he sees this as his chance. Something did happen between them but in the end it didn't work out. It was a very sad ending. Its also written in British English and its sometimes hard to undestand.

A boy's guide to unrequited love

Reader reviewed by Bookworm9

Cameron Wolfe is living in the shadows of his older brothers-- Steve, whose calm assurance wins him fans both on and off the soccer field, and Rube, who always gets the girl. Cameron feels like a pathetic loser, and knows that all he has going for him is his writing. But then a girl comes on to him. A beautiful, lovely girl. Only problem is, she's Rube's ex-girlfriend. Rube is furious, and when the girl finds out that she's come between two brothers, she abandons Cameron. Can Cam become his own man?

Only Zusak could pull off this plot without making it either stupid or sappy. His characters are brilliant, and Cameron is another pathetic-but-lovable character in the mold of "I Am the Messenger's" Ed Kennedy. Although certain scenes seem unnecessarily tense at times (particularly the conversations between Cameron and Steve), the relationship between Cameron and his brothers is brilliant, and readers can't help but feel for Cam.
