This did feel like a unique story in that the girl who made herself popular has been pining for the next door boy who's the biggest nerd in her class. While he seems to be content in his status, she slowly realizes that a kingdom built on a lie isn't much of a place to live. She had a lot of angst about giving up superficial friends, uncomfortable clothes, and pretending to be dumb...but the lure of popularity is strong.
Zack is a great character as well. He gets to grow over the course of the book and stand in his own dignity. I like that he made Zoe work, and didn't just accept her first apology at face value.
"Welcome to high school. Where everyone tries to be someone else."
Anyone who is in high school – or ever was in high school – can relate to Zoe in one way or another. She's a popular girl who dates all the right guys and is friends with all the right girls. She doesn't take life too seriously. Sounds like a pretty easy life, right? Well, there's one tiny problem. She's totally hiding her true (nerd) self from all her so-called friends and it's pretty exhausting. But, she's mostly ok with it – though a part of her really wants the real Zoe, not the made up one, to be accepted. Her next door neighbor and former childhood friend, Zak, is a nerd through and through. From the geeky t-shirts to the glasses, from the gaming to the comic books, he likes it all and has no problem owning up to it. Zak's a hot nerd though. He's also completely and totally adorkable and I want one of my own. Too bad he doesn't have an older brother.
After her sister totals Zoe's car and her parents buy her a manual to replace it, she swallows her pride and asks Zak to teach her how to drive stick. Zoe's always had a bit of a crush on Zak, but as they begin to rebuild their friendship, those swoony crush feelings bubble to the surface. Zoe wants Zak. Zak wants Zoe. What's the problem? Well, he wants the real Zoe, not the fake persona she's built as her popularity rose. Zoe's not quite ready to give it all up, but she also doesn't want to lose Zak.
I never found Zoe unlikable, but I couldn't help but shake my head at the lengths she went to to disguise her real self and her interests. I couldn't even fault her for it. Who didn't mask their real selves, at least partially, in school? She went through a lot of character growth and I absolutely adored her at the end. I loved Zak from the start. He didn't need any growth at all. :) I enjoyed watching them rebuild their friendship and begin to admit that there was definitely more than just friendship between them.
How to Date a Nerd was sweet and swoony, a story with humor and heart. The characters were great, the banter was wonderful and the overall message of the book was fantastic.
I've yet to encounter a book by Cassie Mae that I didn't enjoy and the streak continues with How to Date a Nerd! It was sweet and swoony, a story with humor and heart. The characters were great, the banter was funny and realistic and the overall message of the book was fantastic. If you're a fan of young adult romances – or a closet nerd yourself – you definitely want to pick up a copy of this one. It was a quick and easy read, a total escape I was very grateful for. I'm excited to continue with this series of standalones.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
This was something on a whole new level for me. While I may not get most of the references, I still could relate to every social faux pas, wanting to fit in, social climber, peer pressure experiences. And then some. Everyone has these emotions at every age. Its like fighting with your neighbors to see who has better grass or does the best holiday lighting. Its just how it is, you have to learn to deal and move along. People will always think what they want to think no matter what you do or don't do. Its all part of life, natural.
I think that this sends a somewhat of a non-committal message. It gives you hope, encourages you to be yourself first and foremost, always. Its a romantic, hilarious, witty, so much more, coming of age book. Any age would love it, it'll take you back.
Zoe is a hot mess. She, don't even know who she is anymore. When she's out and about everything matters. Peoples opinions. What they think of her, to everything in between. But when she's home alone, safe under the covers... sans from any wondering eyes. She's just her, plain old nerd Zoe. While secretly trying to forget her nerdy yet totally hot neighbor. Zoe is dying to fit in.
Zak is freaking amazing. He's so unbelievably sweet it makes you want to puke. No, not all the time... really. Seriously, just a little. I don't know why he puts up with the ego that is Zoe. She basically does everything she can to put his heart through the ringer. Yet he can't get her out of his head either.

Ok, full disclosure, I’m on the fence about this book. I mean, I liked the writing and the story was a great one, but I couldn’t understand Zoe’s actions…AT...Read more
