Falling For Shakespeare by Erin Butler was fun to read.
I really like books where a young person learns what true friendship is.
This is one of those books. One of the main characters used to be in the popular group. But she got dumped. Personally I think that is the best thing that ever happened to her, because she was on her way to being a really nasty person.
Her name is Katie, and she learns a lot about people in this book. It was fun to go along for the ride. I ended up really liking her.
Nick is pretty cool too. I was really rooting for him.
The story also has a few twists to it. It kept me interested.
I want another story about this group of kids though. I especially want to know how her old BFF came to be the way she ended up.
I hope Ms. Butler keeps writing, even if she doesn’t write that particular story.
About the book:
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.
