Estimated Ship Date: May 4, 2021
In this sparkling and romantic YA debut, a reserved Bangladeshi American teenager has 28 days to make the biggest decision of her life after agreeing to fake date her school's resident bad boy. A hopeful and heartwarming read for fans of Sandhya Menon and S. K. Ali.
A lot can happen in 28 days.
Karina Ahmed has a plan. Keep her head down, get through high school without a fuss, and follow her parents’ rules—even if it means sacrificing her dreams. When her parents go abroad to Bangladesh for four weeks, Karina expects some peace and quiet. Instead, one simple lie unravels everything.
Karina is my girlfriend.
Tutoring the school’s resident bad boy was already crossing a line. Pretending to date him? Out of the question. But Ace Clyde does everything right—he brings her coffee, impresses her friends, and even promises to buy her a dozen books (a week!) if she goes along with his fake-dating facade. Now Karina is counting down the days until everything returns to normal—but what if she no longer wants it to?
