On the surface, 17-year-old Alex has it made; she is beautiful and smart. Plus, she’s best friends with M., the absolute most popular girl in school. Feeling bored with their fancy Orange County suburban town, Alex and M. decide to check out L.A.’s glitzy nightlife scene.
Pretending to be 19, Alex and M. meet Trevor and Connor, two rich older guys. At first, Alex can’t believe her luck–she gets to hang out at hip Hollywood houseparties and downtown L.A. clubs. These weekend trips into the city become the perfect distraction for Alex, who is secretly struggling with her failing senior year grades, her absentee father, and her clueless mom.
But, after the initial fun wears off for Alex, she is forced to reevaluate her friendship with M., who is hiding some secrets beneath her perfect Burberry-clad exterior…in Alyson Noël’s Faking 19.
