Worse yet, a hot boy-band named ReadySet picks up the clip and incorporates it into a video with their new all-the-rage song.

It kinda reminded me of Reality Check. Stop risking it all on one of your awkawrd schemes. Marni Bates should do a sequel to awkward.

I read through this book super fast. That there is hope and love.

Not that I know anything about that, but if I had to imagine what it’d be like, I’d say this seems about right! Awkward paces nicely and never drags; I actually found it quite a quick read. I think this is very important. She really is endearing and likable. It so happens the most notable of The Notables, Logan Beckett, has hired Mackenzie as his history tutor, because she is not only a nerd, but a fiercely smart one. It has a few serious moments, but it’s mostly fluffy and cute.

Awkward had that slow building romance, the kind with stolen glances and subtle flirting.
