How long can she keep the truth under wraps?
- Avoid her at school.
- Keep his mouth shut about what they do together.
- Never tease her about her friend (and unrequited crush) Ben.
Because with his integrity and values and golden boy looks, Ben can never find out about what she’s been doing behind closed doors with Tyler. Or that her mom’s too busy drinking and chasing losers to pay the bills. Or that Lexi’s dad hasn’t been a part of her life for the last thirteen years. But with Tyler suddenly breaking the rules, Ben asking her out, and her dad back in the picture, how long will she be able to go on faking perfect?
NOTE: This book deals with serious, relatable teen issues (drugs, alcoholism, abandonment), in the vein of THE FAULT IN OUR STARS and other similar contemporary YA novels.
