    1. My Thoughts: We are introduced to Jenna and Jonah who are television stars. Of course that isn't their real names. The chapters go back and forth between Charlie Tucker (Jenna) and Fielding Withers (Jonah). We get to see things from each perspective. They are on screen next-door neighbors, friends, and off screen fake lovers. They have a big fan base! They basically always have to put on a show for the paparazzi, get snaps of them together for magazines, and liven up the hype of their show. They [...]


    2. This might as well have been a DNF for me but I managed to get through the majority of this book without developing a headache from the non-sense of acting. If anything in this corny book was true, it was that actors--or people in general, really--are made up of many people and that sums up who they are. As actors they not only have to characterize themselves with a new persona but let a piece of themselves be that person in order to portray any sort of bond between the fictional and the visual. [...]


    3. Okay, so here's the thing: I loved the premise, but the actual story fell a little flat for me.I actually think the book tried to be more complicated than it needed to be. Very early in the story (before pg 50), the main characters' ruse is exposed and they immediately have to go into problem-solving mode. I think it would have been a better idea to give readers a chance to see the two characters' lives, not only as a fake couple but also as young, on-their-own stars, before pulling the rug out [...]


    4. I gave this book a try, despite its predictable synopsis, because, hey, who doesn’t enjoy a he-said/she-said formula romance every once in a while, if it’s done well? Unfortunately, JENNA AND JONAH’S FAUXMANCE was a solid miss for me. Clunky writing, undeveloped characters with minimal chemistry, and an ambitious but failed conclusion all contributed.Let’s talk about the characters first. YA has seen its fair share of Hollywood teen divas. Charlie and Fielding failed at being distinct or [...]


    5. This book was so much more than I thought it was going to be. It was beautiful and insightful. I would honestly recommend it,Over & Out, T xx


    6. I wanted to love this book and since, usually, it doesn't take much for a book to make me happy, I really thought I would. But I really, really didn't. I had to finish this book in one sitting because I feared that if I put it down I would never go back to it. There was very little about this book that didn't annoy the hell out of me. The transitions between each point of view sucked because they were completely nonexistent. I felt like I was losing a huge part of the story between each chapter [...]


    7. Jenna & Jonah are the characters Charlie & Fielding (real name: Aaron) portray. They are stars, famous Hollywood stars.d they’re a couple. Real couple on cam, fake off cam. It’s a light and fun read that will surely make you laugh out loud and make your heart tingle on the latter part of the story. Something happened that made the both of them realize they really like each other. When they let their guards down and pride aside, they can be two serious people who not only live to make [...]


    8. So, in browsing through the blogosphere, I’ve seen Jenna & Jonah’s Fauxmance by Brendan Halpin and Emily Franklin take a bit of flack. Now, my question concerning that is just what did you expect out of a book with a bright pink cover? Surely, you didn’t expect anything along the lines of Tolstoy? Personally, I quite liked Jenna & Jonah’s Fauxmance but I also did not have any unrealistic expectations out of it.Read the rest of my review here


    9. Charlie Tracker and Fielding Withers are teen-pop sensations. They are enjoying a fourth season of their popular family sing-along show, ‘Jenna and Jonah’ and each has a tidy nest egg fortune to take them into their dotage. But their fame and fortune all hinge on one little itty bitty lie – that they are as in love off-screen as they are on-screen.Charlie and Fielding have been playing their dual-roles of Jenna and Jonah, with the added drama of their ‘loved-up’ real-life personas, thr [...]



    10. 2 starsAs a full disclosure, I picked up this tiny little book at Boekenfestijn, for around €2 or so. It's not exactly like I had high hopes or something. I thought it would be a light, fluffy contemporary, probably of the guilty pleasure variety. I mean, teen celebrities who have an on-screen and off-screen romance but secretly hate each other? Sign me up! In the end though, it really wasn't all that.What was I hoping for from this book? Banter, obviously. Barely contained resentment as the t [...]


    11. This was a 2.5 star book. And the problem isn't even the story. There was so much potential working with a cute situation between two childhood actors pretending to be in a real romantic relationship. The problem was the writing and character development. It was bad enough that even the cute story couldn't salvage the subpar writing - and I started dreaming of ways to write that in my review. Yes, I am a dork.Anyway, Charlie and Fielding(Aaron, by the end) are co-stars of the family hit drama, [...]


    12. This book was a light, fun and frothy read which was also extremely entertaining. It's quite a short book and I finished it in one evening but it certainly fed my guilty love of celebrity gossip!Charlie and Fielding are two American teenagers who happen to star in a hit TV show where they play the characters of 'Jenna and Jonah'. To boost ratings and to ensure interest in the show, they pretend that they're boyfriend and girlfriend, even though in real life they can't actually stand each other. [...]


    13. I have to admit, I'm kind of a sucker for the "fake it til you make it" romance, so I found the premise promising. And the light, bantery voices of the two protagonists (the viewpoint alternates each chapter, and I believe each author exclusively wrote one voice) are engaging and exactly the kind of popcorn fun I was looking for after a rough day at work.But oh, this book is such a mess. I do not think that the authors actually read each other's chapters, to start. It's like they sat down, came [...]


    14. JENNA AND JONAH'S FAUXMANCE, by Emily Franklin and Brendan Halpin, is an absolutely charming and romantic book that is based on a teen tv-show couple. 'Jenna' and 'Jonah' are the teen stars of a show that children and adults alike are facinated with. Their on-screen romance lead to fans encroaching on their real life romance that paparazzi and tabloids exploit. To keep the show and their jobs, Charlie and Fielding keep the rouse alive until a rumor threatens their livelyhood and their fauxmance. [...]


    15. Charlie and Aaron(Fielding as a stage name) have their own show:Jenna & Jonah's How to Be a Rock Star(which reminds me awfully of Disney Channel). And they're dating, just like their TV characters. At least that's what everyone thinks. In reality, Charlie and Fielding HATE each other and they're just PRETENDING to date for show ratings. But then, a terrible rumor about Fielding's sexuality surfaces and his reputation--and cover--are at stake. Now, Charlie and Fielding have to disappear until [...]


    16. Reviewed by Cinnamon for TeensReadTooCharlie hates Fielding, and vice versa. What do you even expect? The two have been practically glued at the hip against their will for the last four years as promotion for their popular hit tween TV show Jenna & Jonah's How to Be a Rock Star. It isn't until the paparazzi pick up on a vicious rumor about the pair that they are forced to escape to an obscure beach house to ride out the publicity wave. Among the blessed quietness that accompanies obscurity, [...]


    17. Jenna and Jonah's Fauxmance offers a behind-the-scenes look at the lives of two insanely popular teen TV stars -- Charlie and Fielding -- who have been acting out a romance both on and off screen for the last four years. When their off-screen relationship is revealed as a front, the news throws both their careers and futures into a tailspin and forces the pair to figure out if there's any truth in their relationship at all. This sweet, fun novel that will be sure to delight fans of shows like iC [...]


    18. This book was really cute, I couldn't help but think of the tv show, "Sonny with a Chance," with the portrayal of teen stars in love while in the public eye.The story was told in alternating chapters told from each character's point of view. In the beginning, I found Jonah/Fielding?Aaron much more interesting, but Jenna/Charlie really started to grow on me. I was sympathizing with her by the end of the book.My favorite part was when they were hiding from the paparazzi at the beach house. I think [...]


    19. This light romantic teen comedy started out strong, with an amusing premise about the two stars of a popular tween TV show having to pretend they're in love to please the fans, but fell a little flat in the execution. The dual narration between the main characters was appealing at first, with enjoyably distinctive voices, but somehow this same storytelling device seemed to muddle the plot a bit towards the middle of the book. I felt that there was more telling than showing as each character muse [...]


    20. This is a really cute and fun book. While somewhat predictable, the fun is still getting to the conclusion and the characters learning about themselves. My son asked me this question this morning "I've heard that sometimes when a girl likes you, she will treat you mean, is that true?" That question sums this book up perfectly.Jenna and Jonah have been thrown together on their tv show for years and then into a fake relationship because it made the fans happy and drove up ratings. But truthfully t [...]


    21. This was a boy meets girl on the set of a sitcom; boy and girl pretend to be in love in the sitcom; agents have boy and girl pretend to be in love in "real" life; boy and girl lose their jobs on the sitcom; boy and girl are alone in a cabin and begin a true romance; boy and girl do summer theater and truly fall in love STORY.It was pretty fascinating to follow all the mix-ups but it makes you question how could anyone fall in love in Hollywood and make it last? Why does the media thrive on celeb [...]


    22. Not bad, but nothing remarkable. This has your typical love/hate relationship between the two main characters, Aaron and Charlie. Unfortunately I just couldn't bring myself to care about either of them all that much. The pressure from society as a teenage celebrity was portrayed well, but I think the emotions that the two main characters were feeling could've been explored more. Neither characters were very likeable and even though Aaron knew he was acting like a jerk, for some reason he continu [...]


    23. Well, this was different. Entering the lives of two tween stars hounded by the paparazzi and under the restraint of their family-friendly contracts, this little book gives us a glimpse into what it’s like to be a celebrity at such a young age and the pressures that come along with that. I wouldn’t call it a perfect read, but I did manage to get through it fairly quick. Still, I found that my enjoyment dipped in the second half, losing a lot of the spark that the two leads had in their earlie [...]


    24. I liked the characters, Charlie and Aaron, and I liked the concept and I even liked the different settings but I never believed that Charlie and Aaron actually liked one another let alone loved one another. I don't believe a time period of longer than 30 minutes went by without one of them saying something hurtful to the other and the last third of the book was spent ignoring each other as much as possible. Plus, I wanted something a bit more from the end, which read more like their cheesy Jenna [...]


    25. Loved this book. I think this book would be great for teens who are studying the play Much Ado About Nothing which is mentioned in the book. Love how the book plays with the Shakespeare ideas of disguises and people playing parts.This was so fun to read because the theater I work at is doing Much Ado About Nothing this fall and also because I have friends who have worked at Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Teens who love Shakespeare, theater and acting will really like this book


    26. A quick and easy book with an original plot that was kind of confusing. The transitions between chapters were confusing since the scenes didn't follow exactly after each other. Also, I did not particularly like Charlie's character, but then again, how can I relate to a girl who's been born into showbiz?


    27. What happens when your favorite celeb couple gets busted for faking their romance the whole time? Obvi!Imagine That! (Teen Summer Reading Program 2012) recommended bookAvailable from OCLS in print and eBook.


    28. Review TBCJenna & Jonah's Fauxmance is basically a behind-the-scenes look at If you were to take a behind-the-scenes look at a show like Hannah Montana or iCarly, this would be the book to bring it to life. Basically, we have a teen power couple who actually hate eachother because they've spent years faking their love for eachother on Jenna & Jonah's


    29. Jenna & Jonah's Fauxmance sounded cute and fun from the description so I downloaded a sample on my Nook. I liked the opening and finally found it at the library. Sadly after the first couple of chapters I was totally bored with the story line. I had no other book with me to read so I went ahead and finished it. Both Charlie and Fielding were annoying as heck. I could barely stand to read it when the chapter was from Charlie's point of view. Fielding was slightly better but not by much. The w [...]
