What I Like About You
Halle never has the right words to say. Kels, her online persona, is a popular book blogger who pairs cupcakes with books. Halle has trouble making friends; Kels has supportive online friends, but none more than Nash. When she moves in with her grandfather to stay in one place for senior year, she ends up in the same high school as Nash. She knows, as Halle, she cannot compete with cool, collected Kels, so she hides her identity, until she finds out that she will be presenting on a panel with other book bloggers and cannot stay hidden. Just as she is prepared to tell Nash who she is, especially as he has given up on Kels and started liking Halle, Nash figures it out. How will she ever make it up to him and put their relationship back together?
Halle needs a boost of confidence, which grows throughout the book, but some readers may find her annoying, especially as the author really doesn’t provide a good reason for this. Even still, it is a cute romantic story, featuring good friends and bookish notes. Her Jewish background helps build the relationship with her family and with Nash, which provides a hint of diversity to the story.
