Nick is in a band and they are playing at a bar. His ex is there and he doesn't really want to see her. When his band's set is over, he sees his ex approaching and the only thing he can think to do is ask the girl next to her to be his pretend girlfriend.And that's how he meets Norah.I wanted to read this before I love the movie. The cast is in the movie is just great and I love Kat Dennings as Norah. But usually the book is always better than the movie and this book started out pretty good. I was enjoying it at first.I wanted to like this book. It was one I was looking forward to reading, but I just didn't like it. I won't bash the book or the authors. I'll just say it's not for me. And if you are someone who doesn't like cursing, don't pick up this book. Cursing doesn't even bother me, but even I thought the cursing overdone in the book.
