SUMMARY:  Mad Love is about a 16-year-old girl named Alice Amorous who has to deal with many problems caused by her mentally-ill mother.  Her mother just happens to be the Queen of Romance, and Alice is stuck replying to fan letters, forging her mom's signature, and telling lies to her publisher.  One day, Alice gets a letter from her mother's publisher saying that they need her next book or they will take away the money they advanced to her.  Unfortunately, if Alice doesn't think of a way to write the book, the world will know that the Queen of Romance has a mental illness.  During one of the interviews Alice is covering for her mother, she meets a boy named Errol.  Errol claims he is cupid, and that he is going to die soon.  Errol tries to get Alice to write his story by shooting her with love arrows and causing problems.  Is this the opportunity Alice needs, or is it more than she can handle?

OPINION:  The book didn't really have anything heavy, so it was a nice, light read.  The book had some humor in it and didn't drag a lot.  It also wasn't like a regular romance novel because it had a little bit of everything in it.  Overall, I think the book was pretty good and would be a good book to get for the library.
