Awkward (Smith High 1.) 1 csillagozás

Marni Bates: Awkward

Mackenzie Wellesley has spent her life avoiding the spotlight. At Smith High, she's the awkward junior people only notice when they need help with homework. Until she sends a burly football player flying with her massive backpack and makes a disastrous – not to mention unwelcome – attempt at CPR. Before the day is out, the whole fiasco explodes on YouTube. And then the strangest thing happens. Suddenly, Mackenzie is an Internet sensation, with four million hits and counting. Sucked into a whirlwind of rock stars, paparazzi, and free designer clothes, she even catches the eye of the most popular guy at school. And that's when life gets really interesting…

Marni Bates: Awkward

Ezer éve a várólistámon van, oly régóta vár hogy elolvassam hogy közben kiöregedtem belőle. :D Ez új rekord.
Nagyon aranyos, általános tini könyv, fáj ezt mondanom, de sajnos én ezekből már kinőttem. :(
Főszereplőnk szokás szerint láthatatlan, ügyetlen, okos… na meg ott van a butuska, de jól kinéző sportoló. Ja és még a váratlan esemény, ami aztán jól megváltoztatja a szürke kisegér mindennapjait. Tudjátok, nagyon sok ilyet láttunk már, mégis megvan ennek a klisének a maga bája.
A 12 éves önmagam imádta volna ezt a könyvet, fiatalabb molyoknak feltétlenül ajánlom, remek kikapcsolódás. Én sajna már nem olvasom tovább ezt a sorozatot. elfut a sarokba sírni
Magyarul: Marni Bates: Segítség, YouTube-sztár lettem!

Too late to point out that he would be better off with someone smart and sweet and—okay—awkward than with Chelsea. Someone who could make him laugh. Someone like, oh, I dunno, me!

I fought the urge to flee by reminding myself that I couldn't run away every time I felt uncomfortable, embarrassed or hurt.

And while, yes, a normal day for me means three AP classes, it really isn't so bad. Definitely stressful, but…

You said, there was no harm in wondering. You said, it’d just be a peek, And you said, don’t be a mother hen. You said, you could land on your feet. But we both know now, You had to learn somehow. Alice, dear, things in mirrors are not as they seem. Stop risking it all on one of your lunatic schemes.

“You, Mackenzie,” he said slowly, “have a thesaurus where your heart should be.”

“What?" My head jerked up too quickly and I lost my balance. The stupid skates sent me hurtling toward the ground, which was exactly what I deserved for thinking that I could tutor and skate at the same time. The Greeks had a word for that type of pride: hubris. And it usually came before a very long and painful fall.

“You asked … and now I get to ask you questions.” I made an expansive gesture that nearly knocked over my water. “I’m an open book.” “I’m dyslexic.”
