Description:

Everyone at Fairvale Academy knows Bryson Keller, the super-hot soccer captain who doesn't believe in high-school relationships. They also know about the dare Bryson accepted - each week he has to date the first person who asks him out.

A single school week is all anyone gets. There have been no exceptions to this. None.

Until me, that is.

Because brilliant Bryson Keller forgot one thing. He never said it could only be girls . . .

Review:

I've been eyeing this on my Kindle for a while now, the cover is just so bright and colourful which kept catching my attention when I scrolled through my books for my next read. So, here goes.

This starts with a prologue in which we learn about Bryson Keller and the dare that allows him to date a different senior for a week for the next three months. Then we skip to the start of the last school week of the dare and Kai being late for his lift and then stopping for his morning drink from the temperamental vending machine known as "Big Bertha". Only his drink gets spilt down himself by the crowd of girls waiting for Bryson to arrive and things only go downhill from there with him getting detention. He blames Bryson and in an act of vengeance/craziness he asks Bryson to date him.

Since I loved Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda, I thought this would be a great read, too, and I did really enjoy it. It's in the same sort of cute teen romance trope that I like. 

I loved thirteen year old Yazz and her support of Kai coming out. The strongly worded letter she ;eaves their parents when they aren't as supportive as they could be at first. As Bryson points out:
"Your sister is amazing."
I 100% agree. And then we got to read that letter. Ha! Good one, kid. I laughed, I cried but I did so enjoy it. If anyone knows any more books like this one or Simon then please leave me a comment.
