Getting kissed for a birthday present should not be a big deal. Especially for Brea Mason, who doesn’t think of her best friend, Adam Silver, in any way other than… well, a friend. But after the liplock she can’t seem to get him off her mind. And she has to, because Adam is a senior while she’s stuck in high school for another two years.
Then BAM, the perfect distraction comes along in the form of a new, hot sophomore who actually seems interested in Brea, despite her anti-social personality. And with the stress at home, stress at school, and ignoring the reality of all her friends leaving come June, Brea welcomes the distraction.
Being a huge fan of Cassie Mae, I knew I would enjoy How to Hook a Bookworm, but I didn't realize just how much! The characters are likable, the dialogue witty and the story moves along at a great pace. I have to admit, Brea was not a favorite of mine from the previous book. She was a little snobby, kinda mean and I didn't know how I would feel about her story. In Bookworm we better understand the Brea behind the snarky attitude and I found a lot of myself in her character; I found myself routing for her to get her happily ever after. Adam....Adam must be a saint. Watching and wanting to be with someone, yet trying to be the mature one and pretend all you want is friendship.....that sacrifice made me love Adam and want to hit him in the head at the same time. As with all of Cassie Mae's books, I found myself chuckling at the actions of the characters, but in Bookworm, Cassie brought me to tears more than once with her heart-tugging scenes. I'm sad that this is the last book in the series, but I know that Cassie won't leave us without more adorable nerds in the future. Check out How to Hook a Bookworm, it's a true YA that will warm your heart and want to share with your fellow book nerds!
