Publisher's Summary

The delightful follow-up to When Dimple Met Rishi and There’s Something About Sweetie, which follows Ashish’s friends Pinky and Samir as they pretend to date in order to achieve their individual goals, to disastrous and hilarious results.

Pinky Kumar wears the social justice warrior badge with pride. From raccoon hospitals to persecuted rock stars, no cause is too esoteric for her to champion. But a teeny tiny part of her also really enjoys making her conservative, buttoned-up corporate lawyer parents cringe.

Samir Jha might have a few...quirks remaining from the time he had to take care of his sick mother, like the endless lists he makes in his planner and the way he schedules every minute of every day, but those are good things. They make life predictable and steady.

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.

Critic Reviews

"This fast-paced rom-com pairs two unlikely heroes, and the narrators capture the reversals and tensions of their growing relationship. Nankani shows Pinky's prickly side while also revealing her hidden vulnerabilities. Adam communicates Samir's loosening up in response to Pinky's passionate approach to living, his willingness to let go of anger, and, finally, his flourishing love for Pinky. Head and heart, tension and humor are reflected in this engaging listen." (AudioFile Magazine)

If you find an injured opossum, call a rehabber! Don’t do what this main character did!!

This book was very disappointing, especially compared to the previous books in the series. It did not have the same depth or humor, and the characters were superficial and inconsistent in how they responded.
The worst part was how poorly researched so much of it was. It does a huge disservice to wildlife, and wildlife rehabbers to put out a book like this for young adults. To not have the main character research what to do when finding a wild opossum is ridiculous, to have her putting a leash on it and dragging it around like a pet is just insane, and extremely dangerous to both the animal and the human.
