Of course, before properly reviewing Ordinary World, I had to read the base novel to find out Andi’s backstory—and I’m so glad I did.
As a teacher in the writing program at Brooklyn University, Andrea ‘Andi’ Cutrone is confident and classy. As a relationship-saavy girl in the city…not so much. When she meets Devin, a male escort whose clientele includes most of her colleagues, Andi gives him a proposition like he’s never heard before.
Faking It is a wonderful mix of personal discovery, friendship dynamics, romantic relationships, and literary theory. Yes, that’s right: Intelligent Chicklit (who knew?!).
Written in Andi’s voice, these lessons—both of life and of literature—are exciting. They are not stodgy or stale at all. This book is an amazing combination of the easy “beachy” reading that we all love, and deeper intellectual prose that challenges us to pay attention and learn!
Faking It expertly fed both sides of my own mentality—romantic AND pedantic! I highly recommend this book to everyone, and especially to those with sensibilities like mine, who are looking for a little lecture with their lovestory ;)
Stay tuned for a full review of Ordinary World!
