I, Bella Fisher, am absolutely WINNING at FAILING at life.
1. I once got my tongue stuck to a box of Calippos in a supermarket.
2. I accidentally called my geography teacher Mum. Twice. He wasn't impressed.
3. I'm a geek. And not in a geek-chic kind of way, but in a secretly-caring-about-failing-maths-and-science way.
4. I always fail maths and science.
So it figures that when I meet the FITTEST BOY IN THE WORLD, Zac, I'm doing solo star jumps. While dressed as a cereal box.
(NOTE TO SELF, fancy dress = HE-WILL-NEVER-EVER-FANCY-ME dress.)
I've got to somehow persuade Zac to come to prom with me while avoiding
my evil ex and dealing with a secret so mega-awks I want to Ctrl-Z my
brain... What could go wrong?
Oh yeah, that's right. Absolutely everything.
Super Awkward is one of those books that perfectly captures those teenage years and all the horrendous awkwardness almost everyone has to deal with during those teen years. It's funny and sweet. The story itself made me laugh and cringe along with Bella. My inner teen would have adored this completely. A brilliant example of UKYA done really well.
