How long can she keep the truth under wraps?

22859815When Lexi Shaw seduced Oakfield High’s resident bad boy Tyler Flynn at the beginning of senior year, he seemed perfectly okay with her rules:

  1. Avoid her at school.
  2. Keep his mouth shut about what they do together.
  3. 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.


“Edgy and honest, Faking Perfect is the real thing.” –Huntley Fitzpatrick

Faking Perfect didn’t have to fake much at all – this book is an amazing read! Packed with chaotic family drama, sneaky bad boys who’ll steal your heart and a resident nerd best friend any girl in real life absolutely needs, Phillips’s latest delivers an emotional roller-coaster ride of a not-so-perfect teenage girl’s life. Fans of The Duff will love this, as it is a great story of an underdog finally coming out on top, as she learns to love each flaw she has, one at a time.”– RT Book Reviews, 4.5 Stars Top Pick
