Title: Jenna and Jonah's Fauxmance
Authors:Emily Franklin and Brendan Halpin
Publisher: Bloomsbury Teens, 2011
Charlie Tracker and Fielding Withers are stars on the hit TV show, Jenna & Jonah's How to Be a Rock Star. On the show, the two are dating, and out in the real world, they must pretend to date for the sake of the shows ratings. The only problem... Charlie and Fielding despise each other. Their entire lives are photographed and taped, which forces both of them to live a fake life. A paparazzi photographer starts a rumor that shakes up the show and the two's relationship with each other. This forces them both to reevaluate their lives, their relationship with each other, and their future.
Honestly, the book seemed like a mix between Hannah Montana and High School Musical. Stars fake lives mixed with stars who are made to be in love sake of viewers. Charlie and Fielding's attitudes and comments towards each other were quite entertaining. The plot was semi-predictable, and definitely followed the plot of a typical chick-lit book. I did enjoy seeing the inside scoop of how it feels to be famous and trying to become someone outside of your role.
I give Jenna and Jonah's Fauxmance a B, because I enjoyed the story, but it was but was a pretty typical chick-lit book. I would recommend the book to anyone who enjoys a fun, romance, story. I am definitely going to check out more books from these authors!Happy reading!
