(Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with a  copy of this book!)

about book:

A high-energy YA contemporary love story, following multicultural geek and nerd club member Cameron Carson... and his secret relationship with school queen bee Karla Ortega.

Cameron Carson has a big senior-year secret. A secret with the power to break apart his friend group.

Cameron Carson, member of the multicultural Geeks and Nerds United (GANU) club, has been secretly hooking up with student council president, cheerleader, theater enthusiast, and all-around queen bee Karla Ortega since the summer. The one problem—what was meant to be a summer fling between coffee shop coworkers has now evolved into a clandestine school-year entanglement, where Karla isn’t intending on blending their friend groups anytime soon, or at all.

Enter Mackenzie Briggs, who isn’t afraid to be herself or wear her heart on her sleeve. When Cameron finds himself unexpectedly bonding with Mackenzie and repeatedly snubbed in public by Karla, he starts to wonder who he can truly consider a friend and who might have the potential to become more…

my thoughts:

The Wrong Kind Of Weird by James Ramos is teen rom-com at its very best! Chock full of humor, high school angst, and confusing romances - this book shows us what it's like when a guy finds himself juggling a secret romance and a blossoming one at the same time. Talk about a fresh take on a classic love story. 

Ramos has written a terrific story about a summer romance that just won't fade away. The only problem is that it's a secret romance. Yep, the duo involved are the school geek (Cameron) and the queen bee (Karla). An unlikely pair that managed to find out they shared more than a school mascot in common. Except, now it's back to school and the queen bee doesn't want to go public with their romance. Instead, the two continue to meet up in secret. Only, Cameron isn't happy about the secrecy. Especially when Karla snubs him at school. Plus, he befriends Mackenzie and finds himself starting to wonder about who his friends really are and where his heart really lies. 

The Wrong Kind Of Weird is a delightful and entertaining story that delves into love, friendship, and self-worth. It's a story that will have you feeling all the feels, while you laugh and cry all the way through. I really enjoyed getting to know Cameron and his friends and finding out whether or not he would get his heart broken or a true romance. 

I would definitely recommend The Wrong Kind Of Weird to anyone and everyone looking for their next YA read - you are going to LOVE this book to bits! Make sure to check it out!
