Awkward (Smith High, #1) by Marni Bates

I thought she would let everything get to her and do something stupid. So the off again was definitely on again.

She continues to tutor Logan, another Notable, who somehow manages to become her friend and helps her through her most embarrassing flubs. There are no lulls and no dull moments.

This girl is apparently attractive, witty and interesting to other people, quickly making friends wherever she goes and admired by strangers and peers alike. There was teenage rebellion and there was sibling rivalry! For some reason I read the third book in this series first, and then later discovered this one.

The story was about self discovery and feeling good with yourself and it was wrapped in a funny, cute, easy and of course awkward way, it was perfect. Bates racked me in emotionally and mentally! The press swarms her at school.

One day, however, her calm, quiet life is thrown into a tailspin. I think Mackenzie is the kind of character that most people can connect with. It awoward so easy to fall under the writing spell of Ms. We always think about how misfortuned we are because we will never afford designer clothes or how we’d love to travel around the world or something.


I nitpick, I know. Will fame change Mackenzie? Teenagers don’t talk like that.
