Everyone’s a fan of someone…
Lexi Angelo has grown up helping her dad with his events business. She likes to stay behind the scenes, planning and organizing…until author Aidan Green – messy haired and annoyingly arrogant – arrives unannounced at the first event of the year.
Then Lexi’s life is thrown into disarray. In a flurry of late-night conversations, mixed messages and butterflies, Lexi discovers that some things can’t be planned. Things like falling in love.
Six conventions, a girl with a clipboard, a boy with two names – and one night that changes everything.
Unashamedly romantic, this is a clever and funny story of love in unlikely places form the author of Waterstones’ reader’s favourite, The Last Summer of Us.
You know that a book is something special when it opens up with the dilemma of having the wrong inflatable palm trees delivered! And from there it just got better.
Unconventional was such a unique novel in the way that it was literally all about books and loving books and authors, with bits that were funny, bits that made you cringe, romance, friendships, family and lots of meaningful quotes to take away (as my friend had to listen to on the phone as I read through all my favourites!). Honestly, I tabbed so many things in my copy!
It’s not an overly soppy love story, but it’s fluffy in the most perfect way which does make it stand out because it wasn’t overly heavy like many YA novels and I felt really contented whilst reading this. I was totally absorbed into the world of book conventions and Lexi’s life revolving around these conventions – I really want to go to one now! Despite being set over these six conventions, you really got to know Lexi and she was such a real and honest character that you can’t help but love her!
“Everyone’s a fan of somone…” – I’m definitely a fan of Unconventional.
