My Thoughts
Jason just wants a date with Harley.
Harley just wants a date with Trent.
Trent’s still getting over Stephanie and asked Shelly, Harley’s bestfriend.
So, Harley asked Jason to be her fake boyfriend.

From the very first encounter, Harley knows that she wants to be with Trent but he dated Stephanie, a senior and head cheerleader. Then they broke up, she thinks it’s time for her to make him her boyfriend. Enter Jason, a new student who wrecked her mom’s car at their first encounter. On their second encounter he wreck her plan to make Trent asks her to Luau. Then, they game begin.

This is one sweet teenage story. All of the characters act as they supposed to be. I especially like Harley, she’s so funny, a little bit drama queen but so 16 years old. I mean she speaks and thinks just like any teenager without trying to sound like an adult. Many YA books have characters who act and think beyond they age. Made me think whether they are really teenagers or I’m left behind and teenagers act like an adult these days or the authors didn’t know how teenagers usually think and act. But here, Harley is a teenager I’m familiar with. I like and enjoy her drama. It’s a nice encounter to Leigh Talbert Moore books.

Result: 3 of 5 stars
