Jenna & Jonah's Fauxmance by Brendan Halpin and Emily Franklin tells the story of Charlie and Fielding (Aaron) who have spent the past several years playing Jenna and Johah on a cheesy teen family show and pretending that they're a couple off screen. The two are not fond of each other. When a publicity stunt goes bad the two are forced to spend time together first at a secluded beach house and then performing for a theater production of Much Ado About Nothing.

I've had this book on my shelf for a while but put off reading it because it didn't look that great. I was very pleasantly surprised. The story is told in alternating voices and both of the characters are interesting and fully developed. What initially seems like a light and fun story turns intelligent and fun at the end as the two characters look into themselves while working on their characters in the Shakespeare play.

Appropriateness: There is no adult content in the book. The references to Shakespeare are fantastic and they are placed in a way that makes readers interested in the play. I would recommend this book to teens who like quirky romances. I would place the interest level at 13+ with it not being inappropriate for a younger audience.
