Another gorgeous "How to Kiss" sweet romance from Amanda Ashby! I adore Zac and Norah and highly recommend to anyone who loves cute YA romance!

Terrific young adult, G-rated, romantic comedy

Norah Richmond is only 16 years old and a high school junior, but she has already spent years donating her time to many worthy charities, either by fundraising or by hands-on volunteer work, or both. Her current good cause is providing toilets for poor people in underdeveloped nations. This past summer she traveled with a youth group to Cambodia for two weeks to contribute to solving their sanitation problems caused by the fact that over 50% of the

This story was great. I enjoyed reading Zac's story after having met him briefly in the other books. It was interesting to learn the reason behind some of his earlier actions and also to learn that he wasn't as shallow as he may have seemed in earlier mentions. The person he was with his twin sister really stood out in this book and his relationship with Norah was the perfect place to showcase it.

The beauty of this story is that both characters grew and became a better version of themselves

I thought this was a good cute story. I loved that you seen things from different perspectives and point of views. I really liked the fact that the nerdier girl got together with the more popular boy that she was crushing on.
I really like the characters of these stories and I wish this series wasn't over. Norah is a nerdier girl that wants to help people and help many different charities. Zac on the other hand doesn't do anything for charities and is a more popular soccer player. He is kind of

High school is a hard time on its own. Add in hormones, stress, not fitting in, peer pressure, and dealing with self-discovery just adds to one's self-doubt. Zac makes it look like he has it all; good looks, athleticism, and popularity. Yet he feels like he's a one-hit-wonder and only good for one thing, soccer. He feels dumb and inadequate. Norah is quiet, shy, sticks out like a sore thumb, and is a philanthropist. She has a huge crush on Zac and she figures that he's never noticed her. This is ...more

Norah is been helping people all her life. She has some scars herself and she wants to make the world a better place. Her next goal is a fundraiser to build toilets in Cambodia but no one seems interested in helping her other than her friends Piper and Gareth. When her secret crush Zac offers to help her in exchange to become his fake girlfriend, she knows it will means trouble but she can’t say not to him. He needs to show his soccer coach that he is in his best behaviour to avoid been benched. ...more

Norah and Zac's story is toe-tingling sweet - and that's coming from a mum in her 40's! I thoroughly enjoyed the atypical story line where "the 2 gorgeous high school sweethearts automatically get together" - Norah and Zac walked a similar journey of self-discovery, arriving at that it's what is on the inside that complements good looks, not the other way around. Written with humour and depth, Amanda has created a must-read for all Sweet Romance fans!
