Hani and Ishu's Guide to Fake Dating | Adiba Jaigirdar
4 posts | 4 read | 5 to read
Everyone likes Humaira "Hani" Khanshes easy going and one of the most popular girls at school. But when she comes out to her friends as bisexual, they invalidate her identity, saying she cant be bi if shes only dated guys. Panicked, Hani blurts out that shes in a relationship...with a girl her friends absolutely hateIshita "Ishu" Dey. Ishu is the complete opposite of Hani. Shes an academic overachiever who hopes that becoming head girl will set her on the right track for college. But Ishita agrees to help Hani, if Hani will help her become more popular so that she stands a chance of being elected head girl. Despite their mutually beneficial pact, they start developing real feelings for each other. But relationships are complicated, and some people will do anything to stop two Bengali girls from achieving happily ever after.

Been in a heavy reading slump since April ish, but I can feel my reading mojo coming back now, finally!💃
Went for a walk while it was still damp and there was the occasional droplet on the air after a heavy downpour to avoid all the bugs so I could focus on my audio - really enjoying it about 30% in!

Good parts: sweet, adorable characters + great plotting. But…I walked away from this book feeling lonely & sad. Yes, the MCs have each other & that‘s great. But one MC who doesn‘t have any friends ends up also having a strained relationship with her family. The other, while having a good relationship with her family, ends up losing all her friends. All for very justified reasons! But I ended up feeling like Brown girls just can‘t win. 😕. ★★★☆☆.

Adiba Jaigirdar writes LGBTQ YA fiction like no other. I'm always completely drawn into her characters & stories. When Hani needs to prove her bisexuality to her friends, she blurts out Ishu's name. The only problem? They're not even friends, whatever people may think about them as the only two Bengali girls at school. But it turns out Ishu needs help becoming more likeable to win Head Girl. And so the guide to fake dating begins.

5 stars / ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Really enjoyed this. Reminded me of The Only Black Girls in town as it looked at how having one person like you at school is not much different from being the only one. And of course with added fake dating! Listened to the audio, narrators were both great.
