BLURB FROM GOODREADS:
Katie thought she knew where her life was going. She was dating the captain of the football team, had a BFF for life, and everyone at school wanted to be her. But then her pregnant teen sister’s pregnancy changes all that. Everyone dumps her, including her friends and boyfriend.
Hey, Katie, welcome to life at the bottom of the high school food chain. This is how the other half lives.
Then there’s Nick. He’s a straight-A student and self-professed geek who’s had a thing for her since middle school. He needs a date for the winter formal, and Katie needs something to keep her busy. Nick’s plight becomes her personal pet project. She will help him get over his insecurities and get a date. Besides, she was popular once. She knows how to get dates.
But Nick has other plans. He’s going to use these “dating” lessons as a way to win Katie’s heart.
Any The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones the movie fans out there? I pictured Nic like Simon Lewis (played by Robert Sheehan in the film). He’s got that quirky, nerdy thing going on.
Likes: Video games, science, poetry, sci-fi books
Hates: What Reese Barnes stands for, muscle-head jocks who always get the girl, not being able to find the perfect word when I want it, injustice
Sweetest thing ever done for a girl: Told my parents I needed a new graphing calculator so I could buy Katie the dress of her dreams.
I loved writing Katie’s character because I’m into underdogs but also, there’s this extra layer to her as a reformed mean girl. It just makes her so unique. So, of course, I pictured my favorite (and magically awesome) brunette for Katie: Emma Watson.
Likes: Coffee, my niece (for short periods of time), jotting down things in my notebook, and glasses ;).
Hates: Reese Barnes, prima-bitches, and people who don’t check facts.
Sweetest thing ever done for a boy: Hmm…I’d say dating lessons but that was an epic failure!
