    Sunny Dae doesn't mean to lie to new girl Cirrus Soh—it's just that she's so cool and he's a nerd who makes D&D videos. Surely he can be forgiven for claiming that his brother Gray's guitar-filled bedroom is his own? As his friends Milo and Jamal point out, the easiest way out of the sticky situation he's created is to make the lie true, and the two of them reluctantly agree to help him form a rock band even though they'd rather return to nerdier pursuits. Growing closer to Cirrus is everything Sunny dreamed it would be, and his new rock-star attitude—which he's becoming oddly addicted to—is even making him popular. But his relationship with Gray, whose life is slowly falling apart, is strained, and the game he's playing seems destined to implode. Sunny's relationship with Cirrus doesn't ring quite as true as his friendships, but his voice, unique and wry, is gripping. Fans of Yoon's Frankly in Love (2019)—and there are legions—will enjoy this follow-up that similarly tries to reconcile romance with identity.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Yoon won hearts and accolades with his best-selling, Morris-finalist debut, Frankly in Love, and readers have been eagerly awaiting his sophomore novel. You won't have to twist the truth to get them to pick this one up. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
