Waiting on Wednesday #78: The Fine Art of Pretending

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My pick for this week's WoW is...

The Fine Art of Pretending by Rachel Harris

Title: The Fine Art of Pretending (The Fine Art of Pretending #1)
Author: Rachel Harris

Release date: September 30th 2014
Publisher: Spencer Hill Contemporary
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary

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.

Though I tend to stay away from most contemporaries, I love books with a premise like this. Plus, it's Rachel Harris! So I'm definitely excited. This sounds like a really cute read and I need books like that sometimes. Here's hoping this is a great one!
