A romantic comedy about high school, heartbreak, and having all the answers.
What if the secrets of dating and love were revealed in one simple formula? That’s the tantalizing proposition high school senior Shane Chambliss offers the hopeless and hapless guys who come to him for relationship advice.
After the girl of his dreams breaks his heart, Shane devises a mysterious formula called the Galgorithm and establishes himself as the resident dating guru at Kingsview High School. But his attempts to master the art of romance go outrageously awry.
As Shane tries to navigate the ensuing drama, he must follow his heart, abandon all the rules, and ignore his own advice in a quest for true love. What he discovers, no formula could ever predict...

BOOK REVIEW: 5 STARS
If you ever want to read something different, funny, almost drama free and from the perspective of a man, read Galgorithm. This is the story about Shane. After having his heart broken at the age of 15, he decided to study girls and find the PERFECT FORMULA for boys to date the girls of their dreams. For years it worked perfectly for others, but when he finally decided to use it himself, things went crazy.
There are so many things to love about this book: Jak, Shane’s friendship with Jak, all the couples Shane helped, the little drama, the funny moments, OMG VOLDEMORT!!! I mean I didn’t like her (I won’t tell, don’t worry, no spoilers), and the double explanation of why she’s voldemort, that was hillarious… And the last but not the least SHANE #BookBoyfriendAlert G.I.M.M.E! He’s smart, funny, loyal, an excellent friend, he cares for people but OMG he’s so clueless sometimes! I just love him!
AUDIOBOOK REVIEW: 5 STARS
This is one of the few audios I don’t get to read and listen at the same time, so the perfect pronunciation and pace of Jacques Roy was very helpful. I loved his tone of voice and inflections for all the characters, I liked how different his voice was from one character to another. Also, Jacques transmitted Shane’s sense of humor, charming personality and his sexyness. He definitely has a super sexy voice. 100% recommended.
NOTE: S&S please use him for all the YA audiobooks please, his voice is perfect for young guys. Thank you very much.
