If You Like Marisa Kanter Books, You’ll Love…

Marisa Kanter Synopsis: What I Like About You is a standalone novel by Marisa Kanter. There are a million things that Halle Levitt likes about her online best friend, Nash. He’s an incredibly talented graphic novelist. He loves books almost as much as she does. And she never has to deal with the awkwardness of seeing him in real life. They can talk about anything… Except who she really is.

Because online, Halle isn’t Halle – she’s Kels, the enigmatically cool creator of One True Pastry, a YA book blog that pairs epic custom cupcakes with covers and reviews. Kels has everything Halle doesn’t: friends, a growing platform, tons of confidence, and Nash.

That is, until Halle arrives to spend senior year in Gramps’s small town and finds herself face-to-face with real, human, in-person Nash. Nash, who is somehow everywhere she goes – in her classes, at the bakery, even at synagogue. But Nash who has no idea of the truth.

If Halle tells him who she is, it will ruin the non-awkward magic of their online friendship. On the other hand, not telling him means it can never be anything more. Because while she starts to fall for Nash as Halle… it’s Kels who has his heart.
