Synopsis

My Fake Boyfriend is Better Than Yours by Kristina Springer

Seventh grade was supposed to be fun, but Tori is having major drama with her BFF, Sienna. Sienna changed a lot over the summer - on the first day of school she's tanned, confident, and full of stories about her new dreamy boyfriend. Tori knows that she's totally making this guy up. So Tori invents her own fake boyfriend, who is better than Sienna's in every way. Things are going great - unless you count the whole lying-to-your-best-friend thing - until everyone insists Tori and Sienna bring their boyfriends to the back-to-school dance.

Reviews

Irresistible as a fluffy kitten. I laughed out loud and so will you! --Meg Cabot, author of the Airhead and Allie Finkle's Rules for Girls series Tori is an appealing, engaging protagonist whose peppy first-person narrative includes some introspective moments and incorporates issues that readers will appreciate, especially the importance of honesty, trust, and self-appreciation. An enjoyable, entertaining read. -- Booklist

The sheer exhaustion of a fake-boyfriend arms race, with the need to create fake email accounts and to come up with competing romantic gestures on the fly, is cleverly depicted. -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

The dialogue is realistic, and Springer brings refreshing personalities to standard character types

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
