Amy Rush might be the only person Sonny shares everything with— secrets, clothes, even a nemesis named Ryder Cross.

Ryder’s the new kid at Hamilton High and everything Sonny and Amy can’t stand—a prep-school snob. But Ryder has a weakness: Amy. So when Ryder emails Amy asking her out, the friends see it as a prank opportunity not to be missed.

But without meaning to, Sonny ends up talking to Ryder all night online. And to her horror, she realizes that she might actually like him. Only there’s one small catch: he thinks he’s been talking to Amy. So Sonny comes up with an elaborate scheme to help Ryder realize that she’s the girl he’s really wanted all along. Can Sonny lie her way to the truth, or will all her lies end up costing her both Ryder and Amy?

MY REVIEW:  “Duff” was my all time favorite book and it was  also one of my most favorite book by Kody Keplinger. It’s been so long when i first read that book and after so long being back in it made me soo much happy.After hearing that there would be  a companion novel to it I just overwhelmed with joy. Kody Keplinger is one of my favorite authors, I just love her books.I truly enjoyed myself reading this book but honestly speaking, it didn’t beat out “Duff”.

The moment I entered into this world I just couldn’t keep my eyes off from it.The best thing about this book were the Cameo appearances of Wes and bianca and also other characters from Midsummer’s Nightmare,Shut out and Secrets and Lies. Sonny Ardmore is a hilarious character who got a special talent in Lying and masking her emotions with lies.She lives with her best friend Amy who is more like a sister to her and was always there for her whenever she needed.

Ryder is a new student in Hamilton High who is filthy rich and always acts like a total douche bag towards Sonny but he got a secret crush towards her best friend Amy.After knowing the real Ryder, Sonny starts to get attracted to him and begins to IMing him constantly with Amy’s account.Ryder thinks that he was chatting with  Amy but in reality it was Sonny he was chatting with.Sonny persuades Amy to pretend like she was the one IMing him until she can make him realise that she was better than Amy.Hence begins the web of lies which ultimately leads her to a disaster and complicates her relationship with both Ryder and Amy.

Sonny is a character you can easily get connected and she always hides her nervousness and insecurity with lies.Another best thing about this book is the friendship between Amy and Sonny.Loved the cameo appearances of Amy’s brother Wesley and Bianca even though they are short.The characters in the story are well build and the plot is truly perfect.When the truth behind “being kicked out from home by her mom” was revealed I felt really sad for her, it was really heart wrenching scene and nearly brought me to tears. I truly wanted to give it a 5 Star rating but i think it wasn’t as great as “Duff” but still it was an awesome read.I hope that the next book would be about Amy.
MY RATING:   4-stars14-stars14-stars14-stars1
