Adorkable (ah-dor-kuh-bul): Descriptive term meaning to be equal parts dorky and adorable. For reference, see Sally Spitz.
Seventeen-year-old Sally Spitz is done with dating. Or at least, she's done with the horrible blind dates/hookups/sneak attacks her matchmaking bestie, Hooker, sets her up on. There's only so much one geek girl and Gryffindor supporter can take.
Her solution: she needs a fake boyfriend. And fast.
Enter Becks, soccer phenom, all-around-hottie, and Sally's best friend practically since birth. When Sally asks Becks to be her F.B.F. (fake boyfriend), Becks is only too happy to be used. He'd do anything for Sal--even if that means giving her PDA lessons in his bedroom, saying she's "more than pretty," and expertly kissing her at parties.
The problem: Sally's been in love with Becks all her life--and he's completely clueless.
This book features two best friends, one special edition Yoda snuggie, countless beneath-the-ear kisses and begs the question:
Who wants a real boyfriend when faking it is so much more fun? (Summary and cover courtesy of goodreads.com)
Please note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review courtesy of YA Bound Book Tours.
This book was adorable! Although a smidge predictable, the characters were still unique enough to keep it interesting or feeling rote. I loved that Sally is a well-adjusted pseudo-dork who lives as her own person. I find this much more realistic than some of the “Princess Diaries” recipes where the outcast becomes popular and surprisingly pretty spontaneously with a makeover.
Becks is somewhat hilarious in his mannerisms and I love that he’s a complete jock. Like real life, things are never as simple as they seem. This was a really nice change of pace from the books I’ve been reading recently: sweet, endearing and a happily ever after.
Rating: 4 stars!
Who should read it? YA Fans looking for something a little light and happy. Great beach read.
