Mom says karma always comes around to get you, and I guess it's true. Because last summer I was a total liar, and now, right in the middle of Mr. Pritchard's third-period math class, my whole world is about to come crashing down.

That's because while Devon was living with her grandmother for the summer, she told her "summer friend," Lexi, that she was really popular back home and dating Jared Bentley, only the most popular guy at school. Harmless lies, right? Wrong. Not when Lexi is standing at the front of Devon's class, having just moved to Devon's town. Uh-oh.

Devon knows there's only one way to handle this — she'll just have to become popular! But how is Devon supposed to accomplish that when she's never even talked to Jared, much less dated him?! And it seems the more Devon tries to keep up her "image," the more things go wrong. Her family thinks she's nuts, her best friend won't speak to her, and, as if it's not all complicated enough, Jared starts crushing on Lexi and Devon starts crushing on Jared's best friend, Luke. It all has Devon wondering — who is the real Devon Delaney?

This book is a must read for pre teens. it talks about overcoming problems and daily teen life. This book is also great because it says a lot about boys, and what teen doesnt want a book about boys and lies?

Devon is pretty much a nobody. When she spends the summer with her grandma and meets a new girl named Lexy, she tells her that she is the most popular girl and is dating the most popular boy Jarod, she thinks it is ok. But when Lexy moves to Devons school and fits in with the populars, Devon is forced to make a relationship with Jarod. But when a jelous girl named Kim finds out the secret and threatens to tell, and Jarods best friend tries to ask Devon out, things turn for the worst. This causes her to have to make a desision that could change everything.

Lauren Barnholdt's "The secret indentity of Devon Delaney" caught my attention with it's unique style of writing and clever storylines. I really liked this book because it teaches us an important life rule, if you lie no matter how good the lie is ,sooner or later someone is going to find out and its going to come the other way around . Like in the story Devon lied to Lexi about her populairty rank but then after Lexi found out that Devon lied to her she was really mad. This book is about a girl named Devon who lied to her summer friend Lexi about who popular she is at school and a super hot boyfriend that she has. Her lie dont last as long as she wants , soon Kim ( the most popular girl at school) knows that she have been lying to Lexi. Kim who enjoys taking other girls boyfriends threatened Devon to leave Luke(a boy that likes Devon)alone or else she's going to spoil her secret but after after a fight with Lexi she spilled out the Devon's secrets trying to ruin their friendship as well. Lexi was mad at Devon for a while but after Devon's sincere apology these two became friends again. This book reminds me of "Pinocchio"because whenever Pinocchio lied karma found it's way back t him making his nose longer as a punishment. Like in the book when people found out that Devon lied to them they were upset and Devon has to take responsiblilty of what she had done and apologize to the ones she lied to. In this book there were many characters. The main characters were Devon,Lexi,Jared and Melissa. Devon is a outgoing girl who took the wrong path in life and decide to lie about her life then ending up learning a great life lesson about never to lie. Lexi is a girl Devon met in the summer when she was visiting her grandmothers house. Jared is a boy who's a perfectionist and cares a lot about how he looks. He is also the most popular guy at school .Melissa is Devons best friend. A innocent girl with a forgiving heart. The book "The secret identity of Devon delanley "would appeal primarily to girl readers because it mostly talks about relationships between freinds and boys. I think readers between the age of 10 to 14 would be intersted in reading. Although it's more appealing to girls i recommand both gendre to read it because it teaches a great lesson and sets a good example.

I think The Secret Identity is a great book. Some of the characters are Lexie, Devon Delaney. The setting in the begging was at her grandmas house and then the setting was at Devon’s school. I do recommend this book. This book is a fictional book. I liked this book because it was about a girl lying to a girl she dislikes. This book has drama and friendship.
