To Buy or Not to Buy: Hung Up by Kristen Tracy

Hung Up by Kristen Tracy
Book Description (From Amazon):
Publication Date: March 4, 2014
Can you fall in love with a voice? This witty romance, told entirely through phone calls, chronicles the tale of a wrong number gone right.

It all started with a wrong number. The voicemails Lucy left on James’s phone were meant for someone else—someone who used to have James’s digits. But then when James finally answers and the two start to talk, a unique bond forms between the two teens.

Gradually Lucy and James begin to understand each other on a deeper level than anyone else in their lives. But when James wants to meet in person, Lucy is strangely resistant. And when her secret is revealed, he’ll understand why…

My First Impression:
This seems like a fun little he said/she said. The story is told in alternating POVs via phone messages and texts.

Lucy placed an order with a company that she is now trying to alter, but the company won’t call her back. She finally gets a message from James who now has the old business number.

Apparently he is getting a lot of calls that are meant for this company that would appear to have run off with the customer’s money.

Lucy and James begin a correspondence that I am eager to see where it goes. The dialogue between them is witty and at times sarcastic. They seem like the kind of people I could be friends with.

To buy


  1. Like the sound of this one, so hope you enjoy!

    1. I do enjoy alternating POVs for the most part. It keeps the story flowing faster in most cases. I haven't started to read it yet, but I think it will be enjoyable.
