What I Like About You by Marisa Kanter

What I Like About You by Marisa Kanter is a young adult fiction novel about Halle Levitt or her internet personality, Kels. Online Halle is confident and extroverted, but in real life she is an introvert who spends most of her time on her growing book blog and chatting with her internet friend, Nash. When she moves to a small town to finish high school, she meets the real-life Nash, who has no idea that his friend Kels is actually Halle. As Halle falls for Nash in real life, he falls in love with Kels, and not Halle. Should Halle tell Nash? Or would that ruin their friendship? Maya Nelson (III) says that “[What I Like About You is] a cute book about family relationships and book nerds, with a touch of romance.” The novel also features “important and relevant themes about Judaism, which are so rare to see in a [young adult] book,” Nelson adds. She recommends this book to people of all ages, especially anyone who is a book nerd.
