Summary:
Heidi has the perfect solution to her popularity problems - a fake boyfriend. She's even made him an Internet profile that makes him look like a motorcycle-riding, poetry reading bad boy. *swoon* Heidi's friends are so impressed they start emailing Heidi's fake boyfriend with their problems . . . including their problems with Heidi.
As if that weren't bad enough, a delicious and possibly single person called "A Real Boy" emails Heidi to say he knows the truth. Can Heidi escape from her world wide web of lies? Or will her chance at romance disappear faster than you can type gtg?

My Thoughts:
There was just something about this book that I could not swallow. It was a good book BUT I did not like Heidi. She just bugs the heck out of me. How can you enjoy a book when you don’t like the main character? She just seemed very immature and kind of rude.

I liked the aspect of a “fake” boyfriend. It’s something one of my friends and I did in 6th grade. Maybe not with an online page but close enough. I feel that if Heidi had seemed more mature it would have added to the plot but because she was not it took away.

I recommend this to female readers between 13 and 14.
