Praise for Faking 19

"Noël's debut novel is realistic and convincing...First-person narration and situations dealing with sex, drugs, and alcohol make this a compelling look at one teen's broken life and how she fixes it. Readers will relate to both characters and their lives."
   —School Library Journal
 
"Alex and M, despite their foolish mistakes, are fresh and endearing characters."
   —Teenreads.com
 
"Noël manages to create characters that I can identify with. 5 Stars."
   —TeensReadToo
