Title: Anatomy of a Misfit
Author: Andrea Porter
Rating: 5/5 Stars
Source: I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book whatsoever; it's my true opinion only.
I received an e-book of this from HarperTeen via Edelweiss. I also received a physical copy from Harper360. Thank you to the publishers for giving me a chance to read and review this.
This book was so hilarious! It actually reminded me of Geek Girl by Holly Smale. I was laughing so much throughout this book.
Andrea's writing is witty and quick. She knows how to make you smile.
Anika is a protagonist that I adored. She is funny and very lost in the world of popularity. She doesn't want to lose her social status or friends. She is the third most popular girl in school, and to lose that position would be like social suicide.
Enter Logan, who is definitely not considered popular. He is a nerd, but damn is he hot!
Then again, who needs him when Jared Kline - bad boy and number one popular boy - jumps into Anika's life.
Torn between what to do, this is a story of Anika's fails and successes at life and maybe if she can sort her life out, she can be positive throughout it.
I actually liked Logan more then Jared. But then again, I do have a thing for the nerds!
Anatomy of a Misfit is Andrea's first YA novel, and after reading this, I do hope she writes some more as it was awesome. This story will pull you in, make you fall in love, then rip your heart out when you least expect it. The ending definitely got me. I did almost shed a tear (and it's hard to make me cry at books).
This book is a standalone that will make you smile, but will make you think afterwards. It's not about how popular you are, but how you make an affect on the world.
Any fans of contemporaries will love this. It deserves all the stars I gave it!
I hope you have enjoyed this review.
Happy reading =)
