I read this on the train. The premise sounded pretty cool too – the story is about a self-proclaimed dork called Jeane and her ever-changing relationship with the ‘cool’ guy at school, Michael. And she then goes on to make tons and tons of assumptions about him just based on how he dresses and who his friends are: Jeane often began criticising other people for what they wore, watched or listened to, even though that may have just been what they liked which I found to be a bit unnecessary – she might like being ‘different’, but she didn’t need to force her opinions on others.
Both are on Twitter and having conversations without knowing who they are really talking to, adding an additional entertainment factor to the story. So I know you’re sara about that romance.
I had loads of fun with this story, and part of that was all the Brit speak: This book will rip my fillings out? He wasn’t being sarcastic or mean, he literally just came over to say hi and she completely threw that in his face for no reason. Adorkable by Sarra Manning Posted by K. She simply does not get melty knees where he is concerned. Jeane acts, dresses, and comes across as the person she is because of the difficult circumstances that have shaped her life.
I love that he gave as good as he got and called Jeane out when saera was being a ridiculous human being. Overall, it’s a pretty light read.
So colour me surprised to find this book sort of adorable, despite the presence of a I love this book in the same bj I love shouty post-hardcore music of the late 80s, wearing jumpsuits of any kind, and the smell and when I was little, probably the taste too of Clag.
What other think, care or feel she hardly take into account.

Adorkable was witty and sweet romance, between two total social opposites. Not Manning’s best but well worth checking out.
Book Review: Adorkable by Sarra Manning
How Jeane is as a person is extremely close to how I am – except that I’m a little less abrasive I hope and I don’t dress quite as crazily. So yes, you could say I’m a lot like Jeane Smith, however, I still just couldn’t connect with her.
I don’t want to feel any good or nice feelings about this character ever. Although Adorkable was told from alternating perspectives, what really made this novel stand out to me was that the reader understood Jeane at a different pace than Mike did — and that was okay.
Sarrs, Romance, Realistic Fiction Publisher: I was a bit worried at one point that Jeane’s rather unique situation was going to be glamorized – what seventeen year old wouldn’t want to live home alone, have a massive internet following and be invited to conferences in New York?

He’s the Big Man On Campus — perfect looks, perfect jock, perfect family. You know manbing type — take the familiar formula, tweek it a little bit, lull unsuspecting readers with a promise of something formulistic and fluffy and then BAM!
If the synopsis peaks your interest there is no harm in giving it a shot.
Not to mention that her analyses sound awfully like shes been skim-reading her Twitter feed for sound bites. As soon as I heard that there was going to be a book called Adorkable, I jumped at the chance to read it!
