"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.

When I was in fourth grade I told a girl (indirectly) that she was chubby like Zack from the Suite Life of Zack and Cody and now we're not friends
I do love this book btw I've just seen it used in too many books for the wrong reasons

Well, they wouldn't hate me per se; they'd probably just think I was extremly weird

I think about this sad factual paragraph all the time, so I really appreciate that someone else actually took the time to emphasize the problem. Thank you dearest author
I know that the r word is technically a scientific term, but could you please change it to disability or something of the sort, because with how it has and is being used now has a really negative connotation that is very offensive and borderline triggering to some people.
