Harley didn't know what she was getting herself into when the idea came to her to fake date Jason. She figured that Trent would see her in a different light if she were to be dumped and that he would want to console her. But in just a few short days Harley's plan to get Trent starts becoming a little fuzzy the more time she spends with Jason. So when she does land that date with Trent...is he everything she ever thought he would be? Or will her feelings for Jason overcome her? Ok, so not going to ramble on like I sometimes do, but just state the facts. This book was too adorable and too sweet and too adorable. Oh wait I said that right? But GAH! It is adorable. I loved every bit of it. It was the perfect book for a lazy day at home and I easily read it in one day. Loved the story line even though some parts were a little easy to figure out...but still thought the author did a great job revealing those parts. I absolutely 100% adore Jason. I love how he never really gave up on Harley, even when it looked like he did. And Harley was a great character to follow as well. I enjoyed that she was a little awkward at first and actually allowed her friend to pretty much walk all over her in the beginning. Because as the book progressed we see her character, slowly but surely, growing more and more. Probably my only fault with the book…would love to have had Jason’s POV sprinkled in. And really it’s not a fault of the book…just a preference I would have liked. Oh to get into his head and see what he is really thinking. I am telling you people…this guy is perfect. Gremlin and all.   So here is what I am thinking when I finished the book....umm, Moore you so need to continue on with these fabulous people. There is so much that could still be told about them. So I will be crossing my fingers hoping you will see this and decide 'hey, Mandy is so right. She is an absolute genius. There is more story to be told.' Right? I’m right aren't I?  ;) Ok, so I lied. I did ramble a bit, not a bunch, just a bit. But hope you got the jest of what I wanted to tell you about this book. It is a must read. And I hope you go grab yourself a copy soon!

I think this is an excellent Mature teen book. It perfectly lays out many teenage issues. It's not graphic like many of the books for young adults, but still hits on relationship issues. It goes through the problems with rumors and listening to them...issues with coming out...how to decide who you like...peer pressure about drinking. However, the peer pressure about drinking doesn't get out of control but drinking does take place. I think this is a great book for a teen although, I have to admit, I REALLY enjoyed reading it. It was just the right amount of reality and emotion!

He loves me, he loves me not, he loves me, he loves me not . . . It can be hard when you're a teenager with a crush. Not only do you have to compete with all those raging hormones, but it's easy to idolize someone that doesn't idolize you back. I remember those years, and man were they painful. I was so shy I had a hard time ordering a burger at McDonalds. How on earth could I talk to boys? In Leigh T. Moore's book, The Truth About Faking, Harley has a similar problem. She's obsessed with a boy named Trent, but is too scared to ask him out. Trent with the blue eyes and gorgeous blond hair. Trent who rescued her when she got hit in the head with a basketball. She's wanted to go out with him for an entire year, and now that he's broken up with Stephanie, this is her chance! Then Jason shows up and ruins everything, from her mother's car (that Jason smashes into at a red light in the first chapter) to her chance to go to the big dance with Trent. And Harley, who's a pastor's daughter, needs to find a way to forgive him. No, wait. Not just forgive him. Use him to help her get Trent! What happens when a beautiful, intelligent cheerleader pretends to like someone else to make another person jealous? It's a great premise, but it's only the tip of the iceberg. Because there's so much more going on in this small town than anyone would guess. There are secrets, hidden motives, and deeper issues the author delves into that made me think about how hard it is to fake who we really are. Yet, how often we do it anyway. To protect our parents. Our friends. Our community. This is a beautiful book.

Really good I liked how it taught the main character that karma really does exist and it does so in many differen ways I got through it in a day and it is a romance but I don't perfer them so for me this was still good and very realistic when ut came to teen life and love life This book was very good at hitting and relating to things that happen to everyone everyday This book doesn't just call to one perticular group of people so just about anyone could read this book and like it and relate to it Hopr every one enjoys and discovers something about theirselves while reading

Right from the start i could ell this book was perfect for a rainy, friday night read. I love the characters. They are desribed so well!! All the romance scenes are cutsie and just make me do a mental awwwwww. Its a nice quick read (211 pages) and evoked just the right amount of emotion. I hardly read romance novels but i just had a break up and felt like curling up with a good book and some fudge ice cream!! (I know, loser.)

The Truth about Faking was a cute contemporary. Initially I wasn't the best fan of the main protagonist, Harley, especially with her mind set on Trent. Also, Jason was a bit needy and I didn't like how he wasn't playing it cool with the fake dating. Over time, Harley was more bearable but Jason just got better for me. He finally put his foot down and decided he didn't want to get played, which is when Harley finally sees the good thing in front of her. Towards the end, it definitely got more interesting plot wise. Plot wise, I really enjoyed how Leigh portrayed Harley's family life as a normal one with loving parents. We don't usually get that with parents from YA novels. The book mentions once or twice the way her parents look at each other and how much they love each other. These moments were the most memorable for me. Also, Harley's father is a Reverend and her mother is a therapist, so it was great to see how different people ended up together. However Harley's relationship with her mother is strained but it isn't due to childish things and it is explored in this book. At the beginning, this novel felt a bit cliched, however the ending was just so out there. I found it to be a bit bizarre but satisfying. Of course the people who should end up together do end up together but it is how they reached there in the end. Leigh wrote a wonderful novel, while I struggled a bit at the beginning, it was a very enjoyable novel overall. I recommend it to contemporary fans, especially fans of Jennifer Echols' The Boys Next Door.

This is a very cute story! I love the feel of thinking its all a game when it’s not. Plot: This plot is about a girl who has a pretend boyfriend and in the mist of things, she falls in love with him. I absolutely love this story. It’s a very cute read with tons of great characters and plot. The plot also goes in to detail with her family as well as her friends. One thing about this plot is that it feels very real and you can connect with the characters. Love: This love is super fun to read. It does reach a climax of choices but I like that it takes her a while to see what she needs to do. Over the course of their friendship and love, both Jason and Harley start to question what they are doing. There relationship also has some strained with family problems as well as friend drama. It’s good to see this relationship build slowly to a wonderful friendship and love. Ending: I love this ending. It is a HEA and I’m okay with that. Being with all the characters have gone through, they deserve some peace. This is a very cute and fun read. Super easy to get into and love, The Truth About Faking captures a fantastic teenage voice that is brought to life with a great satisfying plot. A fun romantic drama that is touching, The Truth About Faking is great.
