Adorkable by Sarra Manning

 Synopsis (from Goodreads

Pages:  387
Publisher: Atom
Released: 24th of May 2012

Jeane Smith's a blogger, a dreamer, a jumble sale queen, CEO of her own lifestyle brand, and has half a million followers on Twitter.

 Michael Lee's a star of school, stage, and playing field. A golden boy in a Jack Wills hoodie. 

They have nothing in common but a pair of cheating exes. So why can't they stop making out?

 What I Have to Say

This book was such a good portrayal of a twitter addict! As a twitter addict myself, I could relate to it completely. Although, tweeting every five minutes and not a single mention of Twitter Jail seems a bit odd. :P 

Even though Jeane and Michael are so different you can emphasise with both and also see their faults. Even if you related to Jeane, you can see how self absorbed she is. And even though Michael seems sensitive and nice, you can see Jeane's point about the way he basks in his popularity. 

It's so interesting how it's written so that the reader isn't on either character's side when they fight.  Both have points, but at the same time both make mistakes based on judgements and prejudices. And it's not just the first impression type of mistake. It's all based on judgements they've formed over time which are hard to shake off.
