Blurb (from Goodreads):
No one ever said high school was easy. In this hilarious and heartwarming debut, one high school senior has to ask himself how much he's willing to give up in order to fit in.
Kevin seems to have it all: he's popular, good looking, and on his way to scoring a college hockey scholarship. However, he's keeping two big secrets. The first is that he failed an assignment and is now forced to take the most embarrassing course ever--domestic tech. The second is that he is falling for his domestic tech classmate, Claire.
As far as Kevin is concerned, Claire does have it all: she's funny, smart, beautiful, and confident. But she's off-limits. Because Kevin knows what happens when someone in his group dares to date a girl who isn't a cheerleader, and there's no way he is going to put himself—or Claire—through that.
But steering clear of the girl of his dreams is a lot harder than Kevin thought…especially when a cooking project they are paired together for provides the perfect opportunity for things to heat up between them outside the classroom….

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
“I just want to be friends with benefits and keep it at that.”
Firstly, can I just say that I don’t like the title of this book? Because calling someone a ‘fat chick’ is not very nice!
Anyway, I liked Claire and Kev, even if Kev was a little bit clueless at times, and Claire had some bad ideas! They worked well together though, and they made a cute couple too.
I liked the cookery side of this story, and I even picked up a few tips! I liked the chemistry between Claire and Kev, even if I didn’t like the whole ‘friends-with-benefits’ plan, and I was pleased that things worked out in the end.
