Fake It Till You Break It tells the story of two teens who can't stand each other and start a fake relationship to prove to their moms how wrong they are for each other in this YA novel by Jenn P. Nguyen, author of The Way to Game the Walk of Shame.
Mia and Jake have known each other their whole lives. They’ve endured summer vacations, Sunday brunches, even dentist visits together. Their mothers, who are best friends, are convinced that Mia and Jake would be the perfect couple, even though they can’t stand to be in the same room together.
After Mia’s mom turns away yet another cute boy, Mia and Jake decide they’ve had enough. Together, they hatch a plan to get their moms off their backs. Permanently. All they have to do is pretend to date and then stage the worst breakup of all time—and then they’ll be free.
It’s the perfect plan - except that it turns out maybe Mia and Jake don’t hate each other as much as they once thought…
IF THERE’S ONE THING I’m grateful for in my life, it’s that arranged marriages aren’t common anymore. At least not in Hempstead, Texas.
I mean, yeah, I’m also glad that I’m alive and that my mom is happy and healthy...
