After reading the nationalistic and revengeful ‘Gapô by Lualhati Bautista, I turned to reading a teenage romance book He’s With Me by Tamara Summers. I often liked this kind of book, but then at times I hate it because it’s not the kind of ending I would want it to end.
The story tells of a typical teenage love story. Well, sort of not typical.
Typical girl has a longtime crush on typical boy, but their relationship isn’t typical: it’s all PRETEND.
Lexie always have had a big crush on Jake Atkinson, her brother Colin’s best friend. This crush stuff haven’t gone anywhere deep, but when the not-so-typical blonde Bree steps on the scene, Jake must think of a plan to get rid of her but not really hurt her. And brother Colin had a plan: “You could tell her [Bree] you’re dating Lexie.”Nice job Colin! But remembering Lexie’s situation: having a longtime crush on Jake, she can never stand it being just his pretend girlfriend.What she’s gotta do? She haven’t got a boyfriend of her own so how could she manage to persuade everyone that they’re meant to be, and how could she convince Jake that she never wanted to be just his pretend girlfriend, but to be his girlfriend… FOR REAL? ♥
Rating: 2 thumbs-up, applause! Out of 5 stars: 5 stars! ^_^
