The blog for books and movies

Seventeen-year-old Kath McKenny has a date to the end-of-term party with her since-forever crush. He publicly messaged her to confirm, but there’s been a recent status update: he’s taking the new girl — giggly, pretty, well-developed Lana Elliot — instead.

After being thoroughly humiliated in front of half the school, best friend Chay talks Kath into revenge: a scheme to create the perfect — and very fake — online guy for Lana. Once she falls for him, they’ll show her what it’s like to get brutally dumped.

Everything is going to plan until Kath starts spending more-than-just-friends time with the other new kid in town — Lana’s dreamy older brother, Sebastian. Kath finds herself getting in deep — in love and drowning in guilt, she tries to put an end to her prank, but it’s taken on an unstoppable momentum of its own, with very real consequences.

As her plotting begins to unravel, so do the people Kath thought she knew:
Her mother has a secret online life.
Her father has a whole new family.
Her best friend is barely recognisable.
Her boyfriend has a disturbing hidden past.
And her enemy is more familiar than she knew.



Comments on: "Fake – Beck Nicholas" (1)

  1. A book that I would like to recommend is “Fake”. This book is about a girl (Kath) who is used to being trampled over for her whole life. Kath is surprised and delighted when her crush who is way out of her league, asks her to go with him to prom (I think). A few days later, she reads on Facebook that her crush is actually taking the new, popular girl and not Kath. Kath and her friend plot revenge for this girl. They set up a fake guy’s account online and try to make the popular girl fall in love with the fake account, dump Kath’s old crush and then be dumped by the fake guy. Then Kath meets a guy called Sebastian and they really like each other, but Sebastian is the popular girl’s brother. She realises that she has more in common with the other girl then she thinks. Kath has to decide whether she will go ahead with the plans, to prove that she is not a doormat, or not, so that she doesn’t ruin her relationship with Sebastian. I rate this book and 8 out of 10. 🙂
