The Blurb:Jason just wants a date with Harley.
Harley just wants a date with Trent.
Trent's still getting over Stephanie.
When Harley and Jason decide to fake date, they uncover a school of deceptions. Trent's got a secret, but so does Jason. And the more time Harley spends secretly kissing her fake boyfriend, the further she gets from her dreams with Trent.
Worst of all, Harley's mom is getting cozy with her hot massage therapy student, and even Harley's Reverend Dad can't fake not being bothered by it. But when the masks finally come off, can everyone handle the real truth?
The Truth About Faking by Leigh Talbert Moore is another one of those books that I would have been crazy about in high school, and I still am today! Harley's innocent and fun. I love her attitude and the way she thinks. Jason came in with a bang, literally, and I was hooked. Harley's best friend drove me up a wall.. probably more than she should have for a fictional book, but there is a reason. I had a "friend" just like her in high school. I mean JUST like her. And like Harley, I tried to overlook it for a long time. So, those parts brought back a lot of bad memories, but my personal issues(haha!) didn't take away from my overall enjoyment of this book. There was a lot going on within the plot, and it really grabbed your attention. I love getting lost in high school love stories! This is the second book I've read by Leigh Talbert Moore and I'm definitely a fan. I'll be keeping my eye out for more of her books!
