Geek Charming by Robin Palmer

Title : Geek Charming

Author : Robin Palmer

Summary : Popular girl Dylan drops her expensive purse in the mall fountain. Film geek Josh retrieves it at the cost of being in his documentary, a look at the popularity within Castle High. While participating they become friends as Dylan transforms Josh into a prince in hopes of interesting his crush, Amy Loubalu, Dylan's worst enemy. Josh transforms Dylan into a decent human being. However one Dylan is dumped by her boyfriend her popularity is on the line and Josh is the one who can repair it.

Thoughts : I thought the whole Prince Charming thing was cute. Castle High. Geek Charming. I loved Josh's character. At the beginning Dylan was the dumb-popular girl. Not the fabulous Mimi Force type. The Paris Hilton type. She couldn't just get the bag out of the fountain she ran around like a chicken with its head cut off. I was happy that she is sort of decent at the end because I couldn't stand her at the beginning. She needed some common sense knocked into her, and I'm sure plenty of readers would love to do it. I liked her OK at the end though. I also liked the changing perspectives, character growth, and writing style. The ending was satisfying. We see more Amy, more Josh and less of her annoying friend Lola and her tool of a boyfriend Asher. I won't spoil the romantic pairings for you. So the question is slog through a few painful chapters for the decent rest of the book? Might as well, its alright and about $6 bucks at Wal-Mart. I wouldn't spend to much effort hunting it down though. 

Cover : It has a lovely cover I like the bright colours and the sparkles. It does have a princessy feel that fits well with Dylan's character.

Rating : 2.5 stars (because Dylan was so annoying the first half of the book)
