Adorkable : Sarra Manning :
I think I should check this out I would love to get a copy of my own. There is no reason. He’s the Big Man On Campus — perfect looks, perfect jock, perfect family.
The bad and the awkward comprise the first hundred or so pages of the book, and our hero and heroine largely interact through angsty glances, squabbles over mainstream hoodies vs orange tights imported from Sweden, and discussions of the uprising of the teenage proletariat ie, Jeane. She almost care for nothing but her “dorky” lifestyle.
Adorkable is exactly what you’d expect from a book with such a cover, but Manning adds a bit of extra — and that bit of extra msnning what ultimately glues maning feelings to these characters, perhaps without even knowing it. But then, thanks to some cheating partners and the’uniting force of Twitter, where love blossoms over replies, Jeane and Michael totally get it on.
What’s sad, is that there are so many reasons I could have loved this book. Adorkable ‘is a strange beast. After about 60 pages of this, I couldn’t stand it anymore. Mainly characters to like.

Even as a ye olde timer, I wanted to love Adorkable. Ja, ich spreche mit dir, Anna Todd! She might do good things and what not but it is because of her vanity.
And it really does bj better and – wait for it – it’s not only adorkable, it’s actually pretty adorable. The problem with both common MPDG narratives is that both of them objectify the girls in question.
But if you approach her in real life, she will stare you down and yell at you to get the fuck away from her I swear that’s not even much of adorkahle exaggeration. At this point in the story, I was giving adorkable 6 stars what i don’t like so much about adorkable – Jeane is too judgmental for my taste.
It sounds like Regina George from Mean Girls. Do you need me to say it more clearly?
You should totes read this book. Another thing that bugged me was how two-sided Jeane was.

It’s also intriguing to see the usual teen problems of love, family issues, and planning for the future collide with rather more unusual ones such as Jeane’s growing fame. Me, even having pled dorkiness for most of my life, i couldn’t relate to the MC and most of her actions: And without When I read a book on my Kindle, I tend to highlight bits that I love as well a bits that I don’t love quite so much, like a lot of other readers do, I should imagine.
Not that I held that against her. He was happy with her even though they kept fighting all the time, but also he was embarrassed by her dorkiness. Makes me proud to be a dork: Dorky Personified couldn’t be bothered with the lowlifes she was forced to spend time with. 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. She’s a really unique character, but in a really bad way.
Michael and Jeane do have a pair of cheating exes in common, but instead of being mustache-twirly and sneaky and generally evil-slutty, Barney and Scarlett yes, seriously, her name is Scarlett are portrayed as painfully shy and painfully normal people who had societal expectations stacked against them.
