Book review: Faking Perfect

Faking perfect by Rebecca Phillips
Release date:June 30, 2015
Format:via NetGalley
Publisher: Kensington
Stars: *****
Synopsis:      When 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?

Review: I loved this book!! Lexi is a very interesting character in my eyes. Shes a young girl who wants "perfection" when her life is anything but.  This book shows the courage and bravery it takes for Lexi to be herself and be ok with that. 

Recommended books:  The boy next door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
