It’s stupid to fall for your brother’s ex. It’s even worse to enlist another’s help to win the ex over. But Brody is desperate and Hayley, his partner in American Sign Language, is more than willing to lend him a few tips.
She’s the school’s matchmaker,’ and with her bizarre and positive personality, Brody finds her easy to talk to, even about the most awkward situations. Hayley’s tips seem to be working, but as Brody learns more about his matchmaker, he starts finding reasons to spend time with her, and not the girl he thought he was in love with.
But Hayley isn’t ready to fall for anyone. Labeled the “Funny Fat Friend” within her group, her self image makes it impossible for Brody to share his feelings without Hayley shrugging it off as a joke.
Convincing her Brody can, and did, fall for the “Funny Fat Friend” turns out to be harder than simply falling in love.
Written by Cassie Mae under the pen name Becca Ann.
Reasons I Fell For The Funny Fat Friend is a standalone book written by Becca Ann.
Not bad at all!
I was looking for a specific type of book and this popped up in the search. It sounded good so I got it. Even though it turned out to be nothing what I was looking for, I devoured this book in a few short hours. It was very well written and flowed so nicely that before I knew it the book was over. I’m not sure why it was even in the list from my search but I’m glad of the mess up because otherwise I never would have found this book and read it.
Great characters! Loved them. It is a fairly light young adult romance story of love and acceptance and it is well worth the read. It touches on self image big time and the results of how some adults impact their child’s self-esteem by hurtful words and actions.
I have never read anything by Becca Ann (Cassie Mae) but I was treated to a nice little comfy-feel-good tale and some really great writing.
