The Six Rules of MaybeN the unthinkable happens she falls for her sister’s husband For the first time in a long time Scarlet’s not fixing a problem she’s at the center of one And ignoring her feelings doesn’t seem to be an optio The Six Rules of Maybe is my third Deb Caletti book I thought that The Nature of Jade and The Fortunes of Indigo Skye were okay but I also felt that there was something missing in them that failed to make me want to check out Caletti's other works until this one My biggest problem with her books was that I had little to no emotional connection with her heroines Some people read to escape reality to find an alternate universe that is so very different from their own I'm not one of those people I read to discover lives similar to mine to come across characters who are imagined yet relatable So between Jade the main character from Nature of Jade who suffers from panic disorder and enjoys watching elephants in the zoo through her webcam Indigo the main character from Fortunes of Indigo Skye who suddenly becomes rich after receiving a 25 million dollar tip from an overly satisfied customer and Scarlet the main character from The Six Rules of Maybe who maybe has a Messianic complex and definitely suffers from the social problem of being too nice Scarlet wins as my hands down favorite because she is exactly my kind of girl Scarlet is a rescuer a savior a helper Wheras Scarlet is stable and loyal Juliet her older sister is fickle and flighty When Juliet comes home pregnant and newly hitched Scarlet sees to it that her sister does nothing to jeopardize her fragile marriage Lucky for her Juliet picked an amazing husband Hayden is a lot like Scarlet His love and commitment to Juliet knows no bounds that Scarlet becomes convinced her self centered sister will be his doom He is nice too nice just like her and somewhere along the way she falls in love with him so she needs to find a way to spare him from getting his heart broken Saintly Scarlet does this while planning to save her neighborhood one needy neighbor at a timeWhile reading I kept thinking of the line the road to hell is paved with good intentions The Six Rules of Maybe explores the real danger in thinking that you know what is best for other people It illustrates the very thin line between being nice and offering help and being a bully and insisting that people do what you say You can want to save someone so much out of love out of desire out of need that you lose sight of the fact that there's a limit to what you can do The rest is up to himher I also loved Deb Caletti's take on hope A lot of YA books have hope as a theme but this has got to be one of its most relistic portrayals Hope is a good thing; it's a great thing But you have to know when misguided persistence becomes nothing but a pathetic endeavor You have to know when to stopOverall I really liked this book It was brimming with insight and you can uote practically every line There were even moments towards the end when I got a little teary eyed In the beginning Scarlet reflects that a good lot of the time nice people are doomed to which Hayden agrees This is the story of how both of them learned to finally save themselves first and become the exception
