The Taming of the Drew by Stephanie Kate Strohm

Title: The Taming of the Drew

If maybe at times a bit slow, there’s still no denying that there are a lot of fun parts in this book, made up of awesome pranks and laugh-out-loud lines. Like any other Shakespeare retelling, it includes our fair share of nerdiness we all love.

I have to admit that I thought Cass, the main character, was a bit annoying with how she misjudged almost everything that happen. I just couldn’t believe she could be so clueless about it. But fortunately her behavior was canceled out by her cool, fun personality.

Also the cast of characters were a nice addition.  I liked that none of them were the classic theater nerd we see every time.

And let’s not even get into Drew, who knew beards were hot? I mean I guess lots of people find them hot but I was never one of them, especially in seventeen-year-olds. But anyway, Drew was that misjudged guy that everyone thinks is annoying but is just misunderstood, shy and kind of nerdy too. He also had a lot of allergies and I liked that we have something in common. Lol.

The whole taming of the Drew aspect was fun but semi cruel. I liked it. Overall this one adds for a really cute, summer romance perfect for younger readers that like contemporary.

And if you look closely at the cover you’ll get a hint of a cool turn hobby our main characters enjoy.
