“The biting commentary on “reality” TV and society’s obsession with fame will keep readers laughing, as will all the remembered Jenna & Jonah scenes. Love, American style.” —Kirkus Reviews
“This delightful, funny romance novel based on Much Ado about Nothing, challenges our everyday scripts and false judgments. Readers will not need to know the play to enjoy the plot but may develop an interest in and an appreciation for Shakespeare’s plays and insight.” —VOYA
“While the book certainly plays to fantasies about what it would be like to live a Hannah Montana–style triple life, there’s enough exploration of character and questions about work, success, and relationships here to satisfy fans of more complex romances. Alternating perspectives let readers in on both sides of this rocky but ultimately sweet and satisfying fauxmance turned romance.” —BCCB
