A review by zinelib
The Boyfriend Project by Farrah Rochon

hopeful medium-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? Plot
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes


The Boyfriend Project, which starts out with a no-boyfriends pact that gets abandoned as soon as any of the trio of friends united by a shared Very Bad Boyfriend sets her sights on a new guy, is fine. It's not great or terrible. Probably the best thing about it is showing Black women thriving in difficult careers. The bones of the book are promising, but the flesh of it is just okay.
