I bought it!
Welcome to the dorkside. It’s going to be a bumpy ride.
Jeane Smith’s a blogger, a dreamer, a jumble sale queen, CEO of her own lifestyle brand, and has half a million followers on Twitter. Michael Lee’s a star of school, stage, and playing field. A golden boy in a Jack Wills hoodie. They have nothing in common but a pair of cheating exes. So why can’t they stop making out? This novel is about an unlikely relationship, but it’s also about roller derby, dogs on skateboards, dogs on surfboards, dogs doing any form of extreme sport, old skool hip hop, riding your bike downhill really fast, riot grrrl, those boys you want to kiss but punch in the face at the same time, dyeing your hair ridiculous colors just because you can, stitch ‘n’ bitch, the songs that make you dance, the songs that make you cry, being a bad ass, cake, love, death, and everything in between.
Since I’ve started book blogging, I’ve picked up loads of recommendations and now my bulging to be read pile is a hell of a lot bigger than it was. I’m not complaining though, especially when little gems like Adorkable are recommended. (Thanks once again Luna)
Adorkable is a very cute, easy to read book. It follows Jeane Sminth, a blogger who owns a brand called Adorkable, despite still being at school studying. She’s completely different to others her own age but she embraces her dorkiness. Jeane is surprised when she finds herself attracted to Michael Lee, the typical popular boy at school. They keep their relationship secret, because they both don’t want to be found out by their peers.
At first, I wasn’t too keen on the characters Jeane and Michael. They’re both so judgmental, but once you get used to the characters you really are pulled into the story. I did like how unique Jeane was, and the way she embraced being different and standing up for what she believed in.
Adorkable is incredibly easy to read. It doesn’t have a complex plot, it’s a story that you can easily enjoy without feeling like it’s a chore to read. I think it has some important messages for teenagers and I like the message it portrays about being okay to be different. I also loved how modern the content was. Adorkable used facebook, twitter and blogs to describe Jeane’s social media interaction. It’s very relevant.
