It’s stupid to fall for your brother’s ex. It’s even worse to enlist another’s help to win the ex over. But Brody is desperate and Hayley, his partner in American Sign Language, is more than willing to lend him a few tips.
She’s the school’s matchmaker,’ and with her bizarre and positive personality, Brody finds her easy to talk to, even about the most awkward situations. Hayley’s tips seem to be working, but as Brody learns more about his matchmaker, he starts finding reasons to spend time with her, and not the girl he thought he was in love with.
But Hayley isn’t ready to fall for anyone. Labeled the “Funny Fat Friend” within her group, her self image makes it impossible for Brody to share his feelings without Hayley shrugging it off as a joke.
Convincing her Brody can, and did, fall for the “Funny Fat Friend” turns out to be harder than simply falling in love.

|What an absolutely wonderful depiction of what a young girl goes through when you are told by anyone you are less then or not worthy. Let alone it be your own parent. A parent is where you should find a soft place to land when the world outside deals blows to your ego. To give you the courage to face them with an inner strength to know not to worry that thoughts that attack you, your outer looks don't worry about what others. For it is the "what will they think of me" that they worry about. Much like this book. What a powerful yet enjoyable way to learn some powerful lessons on how to treat others, the power of words, how not even using your words can say so much too. But most of all how a young girl with all this negative in her life still chose to find joy, laughter, & her own way of enjoying her terrible life. It was a joy to read this book. I was able to read this book free on a day Amazon was offering it free. I gave it 5 stars.
