In typical Cassie Mae (aka Becca Ann) fashion, this book is lighthearted, fun and charming. It's an easy read, not in the sense that it's simple, but that it flows well and has a great voice that grabs you and holds on as you can't help but flick through the pages.
Brody is a sweet guy with his heart in the right place. His biggest problem is that he's terrified of being like his biological dad and brother. Except everyone knows he's not "that guy."
Hayley is a girl everyone considers chubby, and always sticks in the friend zone. I think we all know a girl like that, or have felt that way at some time or another. But she's strong, and despite her family issues, she's still such a bright spark, which is what draws Brody to her.
I'm never disappointed by a Mae/Ann read, and this book is no exception. She is easily one of my favorite YA authors, and if I need something fun and light, I always know exactly where to turn.
Looking forward to reading more from this author...and certainly would love to revisit Brody and Hayley if there were any other stories. Great job!
The title says 'Funny Fat Friend', and they were right about the funny part. Hayley is hilarious, amazing, and totally "awesomesauce". :P And when she told Brody he had to make a list of reasons why he chose her over a skinny girl, he actually found it extremely easy, and was daily adding new things to the list as he discovered more and more reasons to love her.
Brody was a great guy. He felt totally genuine and realistic and just the right amount of sappy. He fell for Hayley fast and hard. When it started, I thought the book would be about the process of him falling for her, but he was almost instantly in awe of her, from the first chapter. The rest of the book was mostly him trying to prove it to her. Making her realize she deserved it.
This book was totally sweet and heartwarming, and fun, and just the right amount of drama to not piss me off. Lovable characters, a YA-appropriate touch of hot, and an HEA. What else could you ask for? :) This is definitely one that I'll be re-reading in the future.
