Book Blurb from Goodreads


When I looked up, his smile was wide and real. “Ready?” he said.

I faked a smile back. I had gotten so good at faking things.

I thought: You brought this on yourself, Sasha. You will have to pretend forever now.
He squeezed my hand again. He couldn’t begin to imagine what this actually was. He had no idea what I’d done. What any of us had.

When Sasha’s best friend Xavier gets back together with his cheating ex, Ivy, Sasha knows she needs to protect him. So she poses as a guy online to lure Ivy away.

But Sasha’s plan goes sickeningly wrong. And she soon learns to be careful of who you pretend to be because you might be surprised by who you become…

My Review

This book was my first read of 2020 and I have to say that I loved that I started with this one! There’s nothing like Mystery/Thrillers to get you warmed up and eager to hit your reading momentum!

Bad Girls With Perfect Faces is my first read from this author, though I also have her other book. All I can say is that I am glad that I took the chance because I absolutely enjoyed this one. This book has all the elements of a YA thriller that I was craving for.

This book is a tale of young love, friendship, jealousy, obsession, and how far you are willing to go for love.

This book is entertaining and the writing style will keep you reading on without noticing the time.

Plot-wise, it would be best to go in blind so that you can enjoy the twist towards the end.

If you are looking for characters that are good at being bad, writing that will pull you in, and a dark-themed YA read, this book is perfect for you!
