    One thought on “How (Not) to Find a Boyfriend”

    1. Sometimes, I forget about how hard it is to like someone in high school.In this book, the protagonist is a cheerleader who is trying to shed her former nerd self (despite being quite smart and from a family that values high intelligence, as both of her parents are college professors and her older brother is a student at Harvard). She seemingly is on the way to being popular, even attracting the quarterback, who is dumber than soup.Then she meets Adam, a smart, cute guy who is more into the chess [...]

    2. How (Not) to Find a Boyfriend by Allyson Valentine(2013)1.7Nora Fullbright, a sophomore with bounds of intelligence and 'potential', decides she doesn't want her high school experience to be just studying, 4.0 GPA's, gymnastic tournaments and completely unpopular. So, to get the ultimate PQ, or popularity quotient, she dumbs herself down at the beginning of the year and decides to go out with the stereotypical dumb jock. But then she meets Adam, smart, kind and everything she used to be. With ho [...]

    3. Este es el peor libro que he leído en lo que va del año.Esperaba encontrarme con un libro sencillo y divertido pero oh me he encontrado con una heroína de lo mas frustrarte e idiota, ¿irónico no? el libro trata de Nora Fulbright una ex "reina de los nerds" que ahora harta de serlo decide convertirse en la típica hueca popular y para lograrlo no se escatimara en hacer estupideces, hasta que conoce a Adam, su nuevo y atractivo vecino, quien es un nerd de primera y del cual cae profundamente [...]

    4. I was lucky enough to receive an advance copy of this one. Although I'm not a teen, my teen self would have loved it. This writer has a great ear- and eye!- for readers twelve and up (publisher's suggested readership). Even though my favorite character isn't the narrator, Nora- smart girl turned talented cheerleader to move from brainy nerds to the popular h.s. in-crowd. I loved her little brother, Joshie. How about this for a perfect sentence that tells us a lot about him-- from the description [...]

    5. One of the lessons this book thought me is, de-smarting yourself won't land you the guys and seriously being who you truly are is the one key in landing the love of your life.

    6. *fans myself* I never expected to like this. It was predictable and too over the top but yeah, one thing led to another.Loved the ride(and what a ride it was). Cute characters. Swoony book-boyfriend. Funny puns. Some emotional interlude. Series of disasters but all's well that ends well. Lastly, CHESS!P.S. I really love Joshie and his cuteness (I'm crying), little brothers are so adorable.

    7. I am really surprised at how much I liked this book.Nora was a social outcast in middle school because everyone saw her as a huge nerd. So when her parents move and she has to switch schools, she joins the cheerleading team and does everything that she thinks will make people like her. But when she starts crushing on Adam, a nerd in his own right, she starts rethinking her decision to play down her smartness and conducts a bunch of swaps to get closer to him and prove to him that she's not just [...]

    8. My Thoughts: When I first read the summary of this one, I knew I had to read it! My type of book!And I was right!We are introduced to Nora who is really smart but decided to reinvent herself so she has become a cheerleader and she hides just how smart she is. She drops her AP classes and takes more normal level classes. She hides a lot of things, even from her best friend.But when a new boy arrives named Adam she can’t resist letting her inner nerd show. Adam is also very smart so she doesn’ [...]

    9. It was in my principle to not give a 1 if I can help it but this was simply pathetic!! I stayed up until 3 am when I need to wake up at 5am just to finished this damn book because I can't take it if I have to read it for the next day. I skimmed through the pages until the end so I didn't literally finished it like a normal freaking book, if I didn't do it like I did, this will be label DNF in my shelf. Nora, a nerd turned cheerleader, happens to be one of the most pathetic heroine I ever read. S [...]

    10. So our heroine is a chess loving nerd from a family of nerds. You have to answer a math question to get the salt passed at dinner. Seriously. But that all changes when her family moves her to a new school district. She become a cheerleader flying under the radar academically, quitting chess and working very hard on her P.Q. (popularity quotient). She almost has it when the new boy arrives. He is a chess loving geek and she just can't get him off her mind. What is a girl to do. Well she orchestra [...]

    11. Let me begin, many people seemed to enjoy this book, maybe I missed something but I most certainly did not like this book, so much that while I painfully tried to get through it I finally gave up trying to finish it. Nora Fulbright is supposed to be smart but I never saw it, she continued to dig herself deeper and deeper into a hole frankly I don't think she deserved to get out of. She would stop at nothing for a guy and to be popular. She had no thought to what she was doing and the possible co [...]

    12. After a kind of slow start, this book had me hooked.I had a rough start getting into the book just because all I could think about was "Why does Nora think she has to act like this for Adam to like her?!?!" She spent the entire rest of the book trying to fix her mistakes from her previous choices. Once I got past that initial bump in the road, the book was really good and I was entirely hooked. I love how Adam is super smart and attractive. He is absolutely fantastic! I always looked forward to [...]

    13. Well. all seems too cliche and the girl is stupid. I normally don't read anything else when I'm still finishing another book butI just can't seem to find the will to finish this. D:I disliked the main character so much.

    14. It was okay, but for someone who claims to be really smart, the main character acts pretty dumb and is rather short-sighted regarding her future.Light-hearted and silly.

    15. Very entertaining! I loved the plot and the characters. The author also made a good job wrapping up the story. Great YA read. My heart is so fluffy and mushy right now.

    16. It was good at the end. I loved Joshie and at the end, when I got to know Adam, I loved him too.Krista and Dex are good characters too, ok, I guess I liked all characters but Nora. Sorry.

    17. Rating: 3 1/2 stars.It is a little similar to The Summer I Became A Nerd, but I think the main character annoys me a bit more in this one. Overall, it's a pretty good story. Cute and funny.

    18. I think the book was average. It definitely started getting better towards the end because the main character's cover-up came unraveled. The book wasn't bad but I wouldn't read it again. I would recommend this book to a person who likes teen romance.

    19. It was an alright book. It relied very heavily on high school stereotypes which was the point but was kind of played out too much. That cheerleaders are dumb and chess players are nerds. It was a little too cliche. I don't know any high school outside of television and movies that actually has this dynamic. Also the guy in this book was not at all bothered that the main girl was basically obsessed with him. Which just seemed questionable. I still enjoyed the read for what it was.

    20. THIS WAS SO SO GOOD. When I started reading this I thought it was a little too narcissistic for my taste, after all I had had enough of dumb teenage girls making shitty decisions like I would have had if I had had the chance; so a part of me wasn't sure if I'd eventually give in and find some redeemable feature until I found myself laughing about all the connections and fixed situations Nora had to handle to get Adam to notice she wasn't the stupid girl she tried so hard the rest of the world th [...]

    23. this review is originally posted at the Blacksheep Project.Admittedly I bought this book because of that attention grabbing title. I mean, just look at it, read it. It's so catchy!ANYWAY, here's a quick rundown on the story. Let's say that this is my revised blurb:Nora's smart BUT she wants to be popular. So when she moved schools, her plan: never admit to anyone that she's actually smart, dumb down her subjects from AP classes to regular ones, join the cheer squad, and date the hottest, most po [...]

    24. So, Nora is finally hitting her goals. She's on the cheerleading team, on the bridge to being popular, has a hot football licking at her ankles and is on the bridge to popularity. Until Adam.Then she's spiraling down into turbulent waters as she struggles to clamber on the bridge, while reaching the valley that is Adam. One problem. He is on the other side of the bridge, back the way she came from.I'll admit, what first drew me to this book was the cover, quirky weird and interesting. Most teena [...]

    25. readinginthemilkyway.Ahora que leo la sinopsis, me doy cuenta que dice absolutamente TODO lo que sucede en el libro. Podría hablar y hablar de todos los aspectos que no me gustaron y eso sería algo desordenado así que simplemente voy a nombrar tres razones por las cuales NO deberían leer este libro bajo NINGUNA circunstancia.Nora: Es la protagonista mas ridículamente tonta que tuve el placer de leer durante mis cortos quince años de vida. Siempre tuve este odio infundado hacia las porrista [...]

    26. There was a part of me, as a grown adult, that related to this book. I remember being a teenager and understanding (especially in the town/neighborhood that I grew up in) that it was not to my advantage to have people catch wind of me being a smart kid. That kid whose mother signed her up for Saturday classes and weekend science fairs at the local universities. So I thought this might go in the direction of what I was familiar with.And to an extent, it did. But most definitely not in the way tha [...]
