Adorkable (ah-dor-kuh-bul): Descriptive term meaning to be equal parts dorky and adorable. For reference, see Sally Spitz. Seventeen-year-old Sally Spitz is done with dating. Or at least, she's done with the horrible blind dates/hookups/sneak attacks her matchmaking bestie, Hooker, sets her up on. There's only so much one geek girl and Gryffindor supporter can take. Her solution: she needs a fake boyfriend. And fast. Enter Becks, soccer phenom, all-around-hottie, and Sally's best friend practically since birth. When Sally asks Becks to be her F.B.F. (fake boyfriend), Becks is only too happy to be used. He'd do anything for Sal--even if that means giving her PDA lessons in his bedroom, saying she's "more than pretty," and expertly kissing her at parties. The problem: Sally's been in love with Becks all her life--and he's completely clueless. This book features two best friends, one special edition Yoda snuggie, countless beneath-the-ear kisses and begs the question: Who wants a real boyfriend when faking it is so much more fun?
Five Boundless Stars
Adorkable, reminded me of those 90's teen movies. That's not a bad thing. I love a good teen movie and plus I grew up in the 90's so nostalgia at its finest.
Sally Spitz, yes Spitz, is a girl that doesn't date and she doesn't want to but that doesn't stop her best friend Lillian aka Hooker from hooking her up on endless blind dates that are just hilarious. And her mom helping Lillian, I mean come on! They have the best intentions but leave a girl alone. So Sally does the only thing she can think of. Find a Fake Boyfriend, sounds like a good idea. Who just so happens to be Becks, her best male friend.
But as we all know, sometimes we don't make the best decisions. In the end though, that's what it took. This story was so full of heart and I honestly loved every minute reading it. It was an easy read and O'Gorman's writing was awesome. I loved how she included all these funny quirks with Sally. She was totally cute and didn't even realize how beautiful she really was.
Overall, I can't give this any less than Five Boundless Stars. This being O'Gormans debut Novel, I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.
