Even though I was only between the ages of 3-13 I still love everything about the 80's & this book takes you right back there. From the neon colours, the bangles, the gum chewing, the eye rolling, hair spray, music, the lingo and obviously the clothing, every bit of it will immerse you in this story. Maneater by Cambria Hebert is absolutely fantastic, usually its the jock who falls for the nerd girl so I really enjoyed this role reversal even though I wouldn't really class Eric as the classic nerd. This is a Novella so is a short read but oh so fantastic I could not put it down!

It's not very often you find a book with a heroine that needs to be brought down a notch or 2...but Kelly is that girl, and boy did she need a reality check! She was "miss popularity" "There are two kinds of people in this world. Me and everybody else." She's what would be a Mean Girl now.

Eric who everybody classes as a nerd is far more "alpha" than you'd think at first. He doesn't let Kelly push him around which I loved he wasn't intimidated by Kelly or the other people in the groups. “He smirked. “Don’t worry, Kelly. I won’t say a word. I don’t want anyone to know I'm here either.” “You don’t?” I echoed, surprised. I thought he’d be shouting it down the halls. I mean, him staying with Kelly Ross? He’d be instantly popular, and I’d be a laughingstock. “No,” he said, his voice flat. I felt my mouth drop open again. Eric let himself in his “new room” and before I could recover, shut the door in my face.”
You find out that Kelly and Eric where childhood bestfriends but lost their friendship and went separate ways. It's such a sweet story finding out about their past and finding their way back to a friendship.

4.0 out of 5 stars Let me start off by saying I freaking love the cover of this book and I love the ... 28 May 2017
By Darcus Murray - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Let me start off by saying I freaking love the cover of this book. I've always been oddly fascinated by the 80's and soak up movies and books set in that time period. Cambria is pretty much my favorite author (aside from R.L. Stine, of course) so I was super excited when I learned she would be writing a story set in 1982.

The book starts off pretty well and I was immediately sucked into the story. I admit that there seemed to be an overuse of slang in the beginning and I did notice some typos, but, at least for me, they were easily ignored. Once the story got started it was smooth sailing and I found myself falling for Eric. He was a very likeable character and I wanted to know more about him and his history with Kelly.

Kelly was one of those characters that I couldn't find myself liking at first. She was pretty despicable and I couldn't get passed the way she treated her friends and the people around her. She was everything that the synopsis for the book promised. The further the story went on, however, and the more she began interacting with Eric, we started to see a different side to this 'man-eater'. She was softer than she led people to believe and she didn't always like the things she did.

Maneater was decently reminiscent of the 80' and reminded me of something right along side of a John Hughes film.

Rating: 4 Stars.
5.0 out of 5 stars Five totally 80's stars! 28 May 2017

Format: Kindle Edition
This book is a little shorter than Cambria Herbert's other books, but no less satisfying! As a child of the 80's, I was amused by all the references in this story. Cambria once again creates likeable, relatable characters that you can't help fall in love with. I definitely recommend Maneater!
1.0 out of 5 stars Not a Coloring Book...ChickLit Fiction... 3 July 2017
By classicsGGma - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
While this may be an interesting book it is NOT a coloring book. There is nothing to download for coloring, so why is it advertised with the coloring books for Kindle...rhetorical...
