I would like to thank both NetGalley and random House for allowing me to read and review this book.

Good Reads Synopsis:

When a girl overhears a guy getting verbally destroyed by his friends for being catfished, she jumps in to save the day—and pretends to be his online crush. A young adult romance from the critically acclaimed author of Places We’ve Never Been.

Wren is used to being called a control freak. She doesn’t care; sticking to the list of rules she created for herself helps her navigate life. But when a cute guy named Asher walks through the door of her neighborhood coffee shop, the rulebook goes out the window.

Asher is cute, charming . . . and being catfished by his online crush. So Wren makes an uncharacteristically impulsive decision—she pretends to be the girl he’s waiting for to save him from embarrassment. Suddenly she’s fake-dating a boy she knows nothing about. And it’s . . . amazing.

It’s not long before Asher has her breaking even more of her own rules. But will he forgive her when he finds out she’s not who she says she is? Wren’s not so sure. . . . After all, rules exist for a reason.

Book Review:

I really enjoyed this book. I gave it 4 stars. It is a refreshing book to read and quick.

I love the friendship between Wren and Kamala her best friend who supports her no matter what. I also love the family dynamic between her siter and Dad. Too bad the mother isn’t around. There is a reason for that.

The friendship between Asher and Dale is one of a kind and pretty typical for guys. Dale is hard on Wren because of his friend and doesn’t want him to get hurt just like Kamala doesn’t want Wren to get hurt.

I also enjoyed in the idea of Wren working in pet shelter with a funny name. I love how she became attached to a dog, Bean, that had a hard trusting anyone just like her.

I like how Asher and Wren worked together to find Bean a home.

This was such a great book minus the fact of the lies that were told or omitted.

I highly recommend this book for anyone to read even middle graders. There isn’t anything in this book that would harm them but maybe cry a little like I did.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t come out until June.
