Format: Paperback
 Goodreads Summary:
According to the guys at Fairfield Academy, there are two types of girls: the kind you hook up with, and the kind you're friends with. Seventeen-year-old Alyssa Reed is the second type. And she hates it. With just one year left to change her rank, she devises a plan to become the first type by homecoming, and she sets her sights on the perfect date—Justin Carter, Fairfield Academy’s biggest hottie and most notorious player.

With 57 days until the dance, Aly launches Operation Sex Appeal and sheds her tomboy image. The only thing left is for Justin actually to notice her. Enter best friend Brandon Taylor, the school’s second biggest hottie, and now Aly’s pretend boyfriend. With his help, elevating from “funny friend” to “tempting vixen” is only a matter of time.

But when everything goes according to plan, the inevitable “break up” leaves their friendship in shambles, and Aly and Brandon with feelings they can’t explain. And the fake couple discovers pretending can sometimes cost you the one thing you never expected to want.

 Reasons I want to read & own this book: 
1.  Rachel Harris. She is one of the nicest people ever. Loves books. Super friendly. Loves to write cute romances that make you smile. Rachel rocks!
2. The title of the book. The Fine Art of Pretending. Reminds me of that line: love and hate, such a fine line. And pretending is kinda like that. You are always walking a fine line of, will they discover me or will I fall into the trap of my own lie and then be caught up in drama? It's endless. I'm curious about what pretending leads to in this book.

3. The cover. Its cute and the story looks cute, so i want to read this. Simple as that, lol.

4. This book kinda reminds me of Easy A, that Emma Stone movie where you have a girl who isn't seen as date-able who kinda changes up her image to be that IT girl everyone likes and that is gorgeous and fabulous. And that was definitely a fun movie, that was insightful. And this book seems to have that vibe a bit.

 What do you guys think? :)
