About (Summit Books):
He’s mean, he’s rude, he gets on her nerves and he’s the love of her life.
It all starts when 17-year-old Athena Dizon unwittingly plays a trick on resident heartthrob and bad boy, Kenji de los Reyes. All of a sudden, she finds herself pretending-unwillingly at that-to be his girlfriend to make his ex jealous.
Now, not only does she have to deal with dirty looks from girls in school who want Kenji for themselves, but her supposed boyfriend is getting on her nerves. He’s hotheaded, never seems to agree with her on anything-and everything about him screams “gangster.” Has Athena gotten herself into more trouble than she can handle? Or has she actually found herself a boy she can call hers-“gangster” be damned?
I love the way the story gradually unfolds… and how the drama started blending in with the cheerful flow of events. I’ll be giving SDTG a thumbs up sign because it’s very well written and so emotionally charged. I didn’t want to put it down even when it started turning into a Fly High and A Millionaire’s First Love (which got mentioned in the book btw) kind of thing. The book was off with a good start and I don’t see why I shouldn’t go on reading. True enough, I’m not surprised it really swept the Pinoy K Generation by storm.
SDTG was given a 16+ rating by the way, but it’s not associated it with the “S” word. No obscenities infused, maybe just a bit of precaution for the younger readers, whose parents wouldn’t want to make their kids think it’s ok to cut classes or party during weekdays just because they feel like it. I appreciate the effort of the publisher for promoting that.
Soon, I’ll read the unabridged version of SDTG. I’ll come up with a lot of comparisons I know… but for the moment I want to keep this spoiler proof for you guys!
