1.5 stars.
This was my first book by Emem and I am sad to say that it wasn't for me at all.
The fact that a heavy dose of insta-love occurred in this, prevented me from connecting to the characters and all around liking them. I enjoy the thrill of a pursue of a relationship. I don't like being slapped in the face with it. I understand the story is short but the pacing could have been executed a little better in my opinion. It had great potential but.

I loved Facade. A romantic novel full of surprises, with many twists and turns, keeps you just wanting to read until the end. Great book!

Emma falls for an older boy, who influences her in ways that affect her actions. Facade is a fast paced must-read and you'll be thrilled with it's twists and turns. ...more

Façade is written in the first person from the point of view of Emma, our protagonist. It oscillates between the past and present of Emma’s life. Emma narrates this story to us, describing her life and everything in between. She spends too much time describing herself and every other thing that catches her fancy. She’s also insecure which affects her relationship with Adam. We thought Emma was too superficial and self-absorbed though, this is not unexpected at her age. Read our full review here ...more

Can’t wait to read the sequel
The death of Adam got me though
I just didn’t think that will happen but then I am in for a thrill so let’s say how the story unfolds
