"If the world can’t handle the truth, give them a spectacular lie."

Bitch. That’s what they called me at my old school. I disagree: I’m just brutally honest, that’s all.

Some people don’t like honesty.

Exhibit A: Matthew’s family. None of them want to acknowledge that their Golden Boy is gay. 

Exhibit B: My Mother. I only told her the truth: that she was a crappy parent who never should've gotten knocked up in the first place. But she was so offended that she shipped me off to my fabulously wealthy father and his walking-billboard-for-plastic-surgery of a wife.

So I devised a brilliant plan. My new friend Matthew was sick of hiding his sexuality. I was tired of obnoxious rich boys hitting on me.

So why not pretend to be dating? He wouldn’t have to answer uncomfortable questions anymore, and I’d enter my new school as the girlfriend of the star quarterback.

It should be easy, right?

Of course, I didn't plan on falling for Matthew's brother.
Isn't it like a fact that people that are geniuses are bad at socializing for the most part? So if she's close to being a genius wouldn't kinda make sense
no they wouldn't hate me but they'd quickly realize that i'm not interesting enough and they'd move on
My mom would have torn my asś up so quick you'd get whiplash just thinking about it.
Stunning. All I really need to say. Hope that word speaks for itself
just read the first few sentences and thought "wow this girl can really write!" already got me hooked :)
The development of this character is the most ingenious idea. I think you have a winner personality here! I love this book so far.
