Everyone likes Humaira "Hani" Khan—she's easy going and one of the most popular girls at school. But when she comes out to her friends as bisexual, they invalidate her identity, saying she can't be bi if she's only dated guys. Panicked, Hani blurts out that she's in a relationship...with a girl her friends absolutely hate—Ishita "Ishu" Dey. Ishu is the complete opposite of Hani. She's an academic overachiever who hopes that becoming head girl will set her on the right track for college. But Ishita agrees to help Hani, if Hani will help her become more popular so that she stands a chance of being elected head girl.Despite their mutually beneficial pact, they start developing real feelings for each other. But relationships are complicated, and some people will do anything to stop two Bengali girls from achieving happily ever after.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Hani and Ishu have never been friends, just two girls sometimes lumped together by their classmates who assume that because they're both Bangladeshi, they must have a connection. But when Hani's friends question her bisexuality, she finds herself inventing a fake girlfriend, and Ishu's name is the one she blurts out. Ishu barely wants a platonic relationship, let alone a girlfriend, but when she realizes proximity to Hani's popularity could help her win Head Girl, she agrees to the charade, and their fake dating guide is born. As time goes by, Hani and Ishu realize their relationship might be more than an act. Hani and Ishu's Guide to Fake Dating joins the great canon of YA dating schemes, but what sets it apart is the way it tells the story of outgrowing friendships--and how painful and ultimately freeing that can be. This novel is perfect for readers looking for a slow-burn romance that is fueled by personal growth as much as by longing looks."
