The Nerdy and the Dirty by B.T. Gottfred


Penelope and Benedict are two teenagers just trying to make their way through high school and their family lives at home. Their unlikely friendship leads to a love story that blossoms when they both just start being real for the first time in their lives, and find the other is far more accepting of what they deem abnormal about themselves. I loved how they were both able to get what they wanted from their relationship just by being open and honest about who they are on the inside, not just the image they portray on a daily basis. Funny, extremely quirky, explicit and honest, “The Nerdy and the Dirty” is one of the few YA books to accurately capture the thoughts that go through the minds of young men and women, especially about fitting in, sex, and growing up.
