When Gia Montgomery's boyfriend, Bradley, dumps her in the parking lot of her high school prom, she has to think fast. After all, she'd been telling her friends about him for months now. This was supposed to be the night she proved he existed. So when she sees a cute guy waiting to pick up his sister, she enlists his help. The task is simple: be her fill-in boyfriend—two hours, zero commitment, a few white lies. After that, she can win back the real Bradley.


The problem is that days after prom, it's not the real Bradley she's thinking about, but the stand-in. The one whose name she doesn't even know. But tracking him down doesn't mean they're done faking a relationship. Gia owes him a favor and his sister intends to see that he collects: his ex-girlfriend's graduation party—three hours, zero commitment, a few white lies.


Just when Gia begins to wonder if she could turn her fake boyfriend into a real one, Bradley comes waltzing back into her life, exposing her lie, and threatening to destroy her friendships and her new-found relationship.

Kasie West me je kot avtorica že prepričala. Njene knjige so zabavne, mladostne in lahkotne. Zato seveda ni nič nenavadnega, da sem segla po eni izmed njenih knjig, ko mi nič drugega ni dišalo.

The Fill - in Boyfriend je prav tako prikupna kakor ostale. Čeprav mi lik Gie na začetku ni bil všeč, sem se kasneje nanjo navadila. Prebrala sem marsikatero drugo mnenje in zato vem, da je njen karakter marsikoga zelo zmotil.

Gia je popularno dekle. Je uspešna, pametna, na videz popolna in še marsikaj drugega. Priznam, da tudi meni tovrstne junakinje ali pa junaki niso po godu, vendar če Gia ne bi bila takšna, tale zgodba sploh ne bi bila napisana tako kot je sedaj. Je pa zato še toliko lepše brati o dekletu, ki tekom zgodbe odkrije marsikaj o sebi.

Hayden mi je bil super. Všeč mi je bilo, da je kot lik dodelan. Pogovori v katerih sodeluje so vedno zanimivi in marsikdaj se lahko tudi nasmejiš. Edino kar me je presenetilo je, da je v zgodbi prikazan kakor introvertirana oseba, čeprav so njegova dejanja daleč od tega. Seveda pa se zavedam, da nobena stvar ni popolnoma črna ali bela in tako je seveda tudi pri osebnosti. Me pa tale zadevščina z njegovo navidezno introvertiranostjo med branjem sploh ni zmotila.

Pisateljičin stil pisanja mi je pri srcu, saj je lahkoten in neprisiljen. Zgodba lepo teče in se razvija v skladu z liki. Pri zgodbi me je zmotil le pretirano srečen in moralno obarvan konec. Spreminjanje in dozorevanje Gie spremljamo skozi celotno zgodbo, medtem ko se njeni starši niti pikico ne spremenijo, a na koncu nenadoma pokažejo, da bo šel njihov odnos v pravo smer. Nekaj podobnega sem opazila tudi v zvezi z njegovim bratom. Mi je bilo pa zelo všeč njeno razmišljanje čisto na koncu, o svojim prijateljicah. Bravo Gia, to sem si želela, da rečeš!

Knjiga je super, zato jo ocenim s štirimi zvezdicami.



 


I don't like the words 'I'm fine'. My mom tells me those two words are the most-frequently-told lie in the English lenguage.

How is selfworth measured today? By the amount of likes a post gets, by how many friends we collect, by how many retweets we accumulate? Do we even know what we really think until we post our thoughts online and let others tell us if they are worthy?

Isn’t that part of being a teenager? Discovering who we are? Who we want to be?

We rarely find the depth by looking inside of ourselves for it. Depth is found in what we can learn from the people and things around us.

Everyone, everything, has a story, Gia. When you learn those stories. you learn experiences that fill you up, that expand your understanding. You add layers to your soul.
