General Note:
Sequel to: There's something about Sweetie.
Summary, etc.:
Told in two voices, Ashish's friends Pinky and Samir pretend to date during a summer at Cape Cod to achieve their individual goals--especially to get their respective mothers off their backs: Pinky loves lazy summers at her parents’ Cape Cod lake house, but after listening to them harangue her about the poor decisions she’s made (a.k.a. boyfriends she’s had), she hatches a plan. Get her sorta-friend-sorta-enemy—who is a total Harvard-bound Mama’s boy—to pose as her perfect boyfriend for the summer. When Samir’s internship falls through, leaving him with an unplanned summer, he gets a text from Pinky asking if he’ll be her fake boyfriend in exchange for a new internship. He jumps at the opportunity; Pinky’s a weirdo, but he can survive a summer with her if there’s light at the end of the tunnel. As they bicker their way through lighthouses and butterfly habitats, sparks fly, and they both realize this will be a summer they'll never forget.

    Pinky Kumar is ready to take on the world, starting with whatever social justice cause she can get her hands on first. Samir Jha is content to follow his plan in corporate law. When the latter's internship falls through and Pinky needs to prove to her parents she is capable of making good choices, Pinky invites Samir to play her boyfriend for the duration of their coastal summer vacation. Fans of the fake-dating plot with a pinch of the hate-to-love trope will celebrate Menon's (Of Curses and Kisses, 2020) new novel, set in the When Dimple Met Rishi universe. Stocked with Menon's staple impassioned and contrary young woman lead, the narrative takes readers along Pinky and Samir's romance with a secondary plot demonstrating the power of activism performed by young people. Highly relevant for today's teen readers, this book will no doubt be a hit both with Menon's existing fans and new ones attracted by familiar plot elements paired with fresh humor, including a possum that plays dead.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Many of best-seller Menon's fans fell in love with When Dimple Met Rishi, and they'll be eager to return to that universe through this book. Grades 8-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
