Publisher's Summary

Jeane Smith is 17 and has turned her self-styled dorkiness into an art form. But despite having hundreds of Internet friends and a cool boyfriend, she feels inexplicably lonely. Things get worse when Michael Lee, the most popular boy at school, suspects that Jeane's boyfriend is secretly seeing his girlfriend. Michael and Jeane have NOTHING in common. So why can't she stop talking to him?

Good fun but..

Generally enjoyable but sags a bit in the middle. I wanted to know how the end would be formed; I just wanted the pace to pick up a bit.

This review kind of contains spoilers

This is a love to hate you kind of romance, which I usually love but not this one, probably because I found both protagonists extremely unlikeable. Jean is very self centered and judgmental and Michael is constantly going on about how he thinks she is ugly. These character flaws would be at fine if through out the book there was some character development but they go on like that basically the whole story until the last two or three chapters and it just doesn't feel real.

The first kiss scene was also very abrupt and I felt rather unbelievable. This was followed by several more kissing were not much else really happens but they were at least entertaining. I did like how the female protagonist was very confident in her sexuality and how empowered she felt as a woman and the author deserves props for trying to get that message across.

I may have liked this stroy better if I read it instead of listened to it because this was probably my least favourite narration of a book that I have listened to. lt took several chapters of listening before their character voices stopped annoying me. The narrators are fine at doing there own characters but when when they try to voice a secondary character or a character of the opposite sex that's when it really gets bad. So if you are interested in this book I would strongly suggest picking it up the old fashioned way instead of this version.

Annoying

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

replacing Penelope Rawlins with... well... anyone!

What will your next listen be?

The Yorkshire Pudding Club

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Daniel Coonan and Penelope Rawlins ?

Daniel Coonan was fine but Penelope Rawlins made the male lead sound petulant all the time.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

disappointment and annoyance

Any additional comments?

Adult authors appropriating teen language is fine, but overuse just highlights the fact that you don't realise what teenagers are really like - if I heard "totes" one more time I thought I would scream... doesn't she realise that half the time kids are just being ironic?

Adorkable is adorable

Great narration and story line. Couldn't stop listening. A couple of laugh out loud moments.
