The Art Of Getting Stared At by Laura  Langston

I picked up this book because of the title, I wasn’t sure what it was about at first. The description on the inside of the cover doesn’t do this book justice.  I absolutely loved this book because I think it shows that high school isn’t as peachy as the movies and most books make it out to be. Just like in Sloane’s case, real friends (even awkward ones) will like you for who you are even if they might not understand. I hope you like this book as much as I did!  Enjoy!

Sixteen year old Sloane Kendrick is thrilled when she finds out that she has a chance to produce a video to get a scholarship to film school. The problem? She has to work with Isaac Alexander, a boy who she has a particularly awkward history with—and she has to do it in two weeks—But, Sloane isn’t about to let this stop her.  When Sloane is diagnosed with a rare disease that leads to the loss of her hair she’s devastated.

Follow Sloane on her journey to deal with life’s bad moments. Will Isaac stay her awkward yet friendly acquaintance or will he become something more?
