You know how I don’t like coming-to-age novels OR dark contemporaries? You can definitely catch glimpses of M’s worries and anxiety break through.
I bet that’s the big terrifying secret that she can’t tell anyone! It wasn’t so terrible that I had to force myself to read it, like a number of other books. Alex, our protagonist, is someone I’d grown to admire.
Book Review: Faking 19 by Alyson Noel
When you get a guy’s number and the chances of seeing him again are pretty slim Feeling bored with their fancy Orange County suburban town, Alex and M.
Formerly an excellent student and homecoming queen, she is quite the opposite now. And Connor Firth Yes! Overall, it was a very neat cast, very well portrayed.
We might not even call this a review. The storyline was predictable and repetitive, but it was a pretty quick read. I’ve read her Immortal series and thought I’d try something else. Anyways, let me mention some of the things she does about her grades. Anyway, from memory, it was a fairly typical trashy teen novel. And after a very few hangouts, they’re at his house, the music is set, they take off their clothes.
Alex I wanted to strangle she complains how she can’t go to college and get a scholarship when she won’t even hand her assignments in or start her homework to begin with Ugh this book, I was going to give it 2 stars but I changed my mind. It is amazing, and so aesthetic!
As for the romance, it sucked along with everything else. You get the gist. And no texting at allbut it certainly feels emotionally real and is quite touching at the end, when Alex wakes up and grabs hold of the steering wheel of her own life. I’m sorry that I disappointed you, I’m sorry I lied. Sep 14, Holly rated it did not like it.
Just to name a few. The jealousy Alex has allyson M is so infuriating and loaded with so much girl hate it’s hard to get past it. It was painful to see Alex throwing herself at him.
Her grade point average has diminished, and there is no hope of her going to college except for her rich father. She is a very good writer and is very intelligent, but after her sophomore year, she hasn’t put much effort into her grades and has been receiving lots of c’s. It didn’t exactly take my breathe away, though. Needless to say, I was thoroughly bored throughout the story.
Unlike most people, I actually found this book in my library as part of a two-novels-in-one book called ‘Keeping Secrets. Although Alex also yearns to be older, she still has some semblance of what is important.
I really liked how Faking 19 was wrote, it was so “teen”, the narrative voice alysoh angry and sarcastic. The way she appreciates nothing and nobody is so frustrating! All in all, Faking 19 is a great story, has an amazing concept, and is very engaging. I can let it go if Alex was a mature enough person, but who are we kidding?

She’s the poster girl of “I don’t give a fuck about nothin'”. Entertaining to read in a night when you don’t want to think too much about complex concepts ooh, that kinda rhymes. You dug your own grave, Alex. Also like Art Geeks and Prom Queens everything got wrapped up nicely and a happy ending for Alex with everything in her nlel.
No kto by si moel bol pomyslel? You tricked this guy into sleeping with you and making him commit a crime by accident, no less! The plot was rather simple, there wasn’t really any conflict or “action”. I think I kept at it because it was a fairly quick, smooth read. Fqking then I lost sympathy for the guy when he slept with her again after that.

And he didn’t mean it in a good way. I kept waiting for M to start treating Alex like a real person. And the rest of the book continues in this dull, repetitive fashion – with M treating Alex like dirt a couple of times in between – and that’s when it begins to feel like a very long episode of Gossip Girl.
Neither is the title very relevant. It was a decent read,but nothing mind blowing, storyline was a little bit dull at certain parts and could have used a picker upper.
So, the almost non-existent plot follows Alex, a senior who has completely lost herself in the seas of misfits in high school.
A former popular girl, Alex has let her grades slip and spends all her time traveling to LA with her best friend M.
