Recommend A...Book That You Read This Year
There are SO many amazing books that I've read this year that it was really hard to pick just one to recommend to you. However, I finally decided, and the book I read this year that I'm going to be recommending is...
Adorkable by Sarra Manning
"Jeane Smith is seventeen and has turned her self-styled dorkiness into an art form, a lifestyle choice and a profitable website and consultancy business. She writes a style column for a Japanese teen magazine and came number seven in The Guardian's 30 People Under 30 Who Are Changing The World. And yet, in spite of the accolades, hundreds of Internet friendships and a cool boyfriend, she feels inexplicably lonely, a situation made infinitely worse when Michael Lee, the most mass-market, popular and predictably all-rounded boy at school tells Jeane of his suspicion that Jeane's boyfriend is secretly seeing his girlfriend. Michael and Jeane have NOTHING in common - she is cool and individual; he is the golden boy in an Abercrombie & Fitch T-shirt. So why can't she stop talking to him?"
Adorkable was a fun, quirky, cute read with completely believable characters and it also had meaningful messages about being your own person and not being afraid to be yourself that made it a valuable, as well as entertaining, book. You can read my review of it here :)
