Henri "Halti" Haltiwanger can charm just about anyone. But his easy smiles mask a burning ambition to attend his dream college, Columbia University. There is only one person who seems immune to Henri's charms: his "intense" classmate and neighbor Corinne Troy. When she uncovers Henri's less-than-honest dog-walking scheme, she blackmails him into helping her change her image at school. Henri agrees, seeing a potential upside for himself. Soon what started as a mutual hustle turns into something more surprising than either of them ever bargained for...-- Publisher's description.

Morris Award winner Phillippe (The Field Guide to the North American Teenager, 2019) turns up the charm in his sophomore novel with aspiring designer and teenage scammer Henri Haltiwanger. A first-generation Haitian American, Henri is determined to make the most of his life, and he's already got it pretty figured out with his secretly self-run dog-walking business, tailored "Smile," and focus on attending Columbia. But when his cute-but-uptight peer discovers the reality behind Uptown Updogs, Henri agrees to help her socially in exchange for discretion. From its dynamic, easy-to-love characters to the endearing prose, this novel easily embodies Henri's cultivated suaveness, and his unusually confident persona, bring a fresh perspective. Readers eager to generate self-distinction will identify with Henri and appreciate the themes of honesty and integrity. Henri's voice, which is appropriately and realistically mature without feeling overly adult, will capture fans of Maurene Goo. A great choice for readers seeking a thematically substantive novel without an overly complex plot. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
