Bookishly Ever After by Isabele Bandeira

Product Details I read this one for my Goodreads Reading challenge.  I used it for task #44 - a book you are embarassed to read in public .  As a grown woman,  I take a lot of crap for reading YA books like this one.  

This is the story of Phoebe, a bookish, band geek who likes to knit.   She starts to fall for follow band geek, Dev, at the prompting of her best friend.  The problem is ,they are both a little shy and Phoebe gets most of her advice from romance novels on how to behave around boys.

I read a lot of YA books.  Mostly because I have two daughters and I like to read what they are reading or be able to recommed books they might like.   But to be honest,  I also enjoy the genre - usually.

This one was a bit much for me.  There was too much going into the world of books - like a side conversation during the main part of the story.  I get it,  I think it may have been a useful plot tool, I just didn't enjoy it.   I think this book is probably perfect for it's intended audiece - self conscious 13 year olds looking for reassurance that it's ok to be yourself.  I gave it 2 stars.
