Friday Memes: Just Friends by Tiffany Pitcock

Happy Friday everybody!!

Beginning:
The classroom door swung open.

Every head in the class turned to see a boy with messy blond hair walk in.
Friday 56:
She looked out the windshield, less than thrilled. "Thank you for sharing your run-down barn with me."
This week I am reading Just Friends by Tiffany Pitcock. I got this ARC from Macmillan. Here is the description from Amazon:
A new spin on the classic smart-girl-and-bad-boy setup, this witty contemporary romance shows how easily a friendship – even one built on an elaborate lie – can become so much more.

Jenny meets Chance for the very first time when she is assigned as his partner in their Junior Oral Communications class. But after they rescue a doomed assignment with one clever lie, the whole school is suddenly convinced that Little-Miss-Really-Likes-Having-A’s and the most scandalous heartbreaker in school have been best friends forever. It’s amazing how quickly a lie can grow―especially when you really, really want it to be the truth.

With Jenny, Chance can live the normal life he’s always kind of wanted. And with Chance, Jenny can have the exciting teen experiences that TV shows and movies have always promised. Through it all, they hold on to the fact that they are “just friends.” But that might be the biggest lie of all.

Debut author Tiffany Pitcock delivers a spot-on depiction of first love and the high school rumor mill in Just Friends, chosen by readers like you for Macmillan's young adult imprint Swoon Reads.
