Reading is a gateway to wisdom. Through it, you are ushered into a world powered by the gift of imagination. Nowadays it is almost a novelty to see young people pore over books but with Bianca B. Bernardo’s phenomenal pocketbook [also available online] ‘SHE’S DATING THE GANGSTER’ that has changed altogether. The book being a hit is selling like hot pan de sal at all National Bookstore outlets @ ₱175. Published by the Gokongwei’s Summit, it is now being readied to become another StarCinema hit starring DANIEL PADILLA and Kathryn Bernardo. The plot is old and simple but there are contemporary elements added to make it delectable to today’s youth. Here is a story detail provided by NB : He’s mean, he’s rude, he gets on her nerves and he’s the love of her life. It all starts when 17-year-old Athena Dizon unwittingly plays a trick on resident heartthrob and bad boy, Kenji de los Reyes. All of a sudden, she finds herself pretending—unwillingly at that—to be his girlfriend to make his ex jealous. Now, not only does she have to deal with dirty looks from the girls in school who want Kenji for themselves, but her supposed boyfriend is getting on her nerves. He’s hotheaded, never seems to agree with her on anything—and everything about him screams “gangster”. Has Athena gotten herself into more trouble than she can handle? Or has she actually found herself a boy she can call hers—“gangster” be damned?
