Reasons to Love a Nerd Like Me by Becky Jerams
All Scotty wants is a quiet life.
He loves the fact that he is a nerd, is proud of the geeky clubs he belongs to with his friends and the fact that his grades are perfect.
What he doesn't like though is the fact that he is the target of a hate campaign by the school hero Tayler and his little gang.
No one knows why he is a target, it's a secret he has kept for a few years and was intending to keep forever but things were slowly getting out of hand.
When he crosses paths with the broody, bad boy in school, it gets even more complicated.....
Who would have guessed he had a thing for mean and moody!!!
Vincent likes to be alone, he has one friend and thats the way he wants to keep it.
For some reason though, Scotty seems to be affecting him in a good way, bringing out his softer side.
When the 2 of them start a relationship, things are going well until others find out.
With a jealous best friend, an ex who is firmly in the closet and Scotty's secret, how will they be able to be together and more to the point, will anyone let them!!!
This was a very sweet book about teenagers finding love and all the angst that goes along with it.
Being a kid isn't easy, being a kid under a lot of pressure is even harder.
4 out of 5 stars.
