9780141315423: Faking it

Will is popular with the girls but they don't see him as boyfriend material and, at nearly 15, he's never had a girlfriend. When he sees a photo of Hannah, his step-mum's beautiful niece who wants to be an actress, he shows it to his friend and pretends she's his girlfriend. Will's reputation soars as he and his friend Barney work out details of her life and personality. But soon, to preserve Will's credibility, his girlfriend must put in an appearance. Barney needs her too to make his girlfriend jealous and the resulting complications lead to very unexpected results.

About the Author:

Pete Johnson worked as an English teacher and a film critic for Radio 1 before becoming a full-time writer. He is well known as a writer across the age range. THE GHOST DOG, a book for younger readers, won the 1997 Young Telegraph Award. Pete is a popular visitor in schools and libraries. He lives in St Albans, Hertfordshire.

From AudioFile:

Pete Johnson understands kids' problems, and in FAKING IT he cleverly presents Will's attempt to understand girls and why he's not seen as boyfriend material. (He's too nice.) He attempts to solve his problem by making up the perfect girlfriend. Narrator Paul Chequer is grand; his delivery sounds exactly like the real conversations and points of view of kids. When Will falters, we can hear it in his voice. Johnson creates funny and believable characters, and Chequer delivers for him. Will's best friend, Barney, is a chubby youth who sounds like he looks. Boys--and girls--should find laughs and comfort as they listen to boys discuss the mysteries of the female. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
