Her Good Side

May 30

The cover has a palm tree outline in the background. Centered is a couple. She is a young Black woman in hot pink leggings and crop top and tennis shoes with bright colors. Her hair is in long braids. The young man next to her has fair skin and dark hair that is up in a bun. He is wearing black sweats and  a black t-shirt with a camera around his neck. They are side by side and have one arm on each other. There is a skateboard behind him and a basketball on the ground behind her. There is an extra sentence that says practice (dating) makes perfect.Her Good Side by Rebekah Weatherspoon

Sixteen-year-old Bethany Greene, though confident and self-assured, is what they call a late-bloomer. She’s never had a boyfriend, date, or first kiss. She’s determined to change that but after her crush turns her down cold for Homecoming–declaring her too inexperienced–and all her back-up ideas fall through, she cautiously agrees to go with her best friend’s boyfriend Jacob. A platonic date is better than no date, right? Until Saylor breaks up with said boyfriend.

Dumped twice in just two months, Jacob Yeun wonders if he’s the problem. After years hiding behind his camera and a shocking summer glow up, he wasn’t quite ready for all the attention or to be someone’s boyfriend. There are no guides for his particular circumstances, or for taking your ex’s best friend to the dance.

Why not make the best of an awkward situation? Bethany and Jacob decide to fake date for practice, building their confidence in matters of the heart.

And it works–guys are finally noticing Bethany. But things get complicated as their kissing sessions–for research of course!–start to feel real. This arrangement was supposed to help them in dating other people, but what if their perfect match is right in front of them? — Cover image and summary via Goodreads
