“It took her a long time to get accustomed to it because she was really into the tomboy thing and was resistant to too much glamour. I think there was part of her that didn’t want that sort of attention, because somewhere down inside she thought she wouldn’t be taken seriously. She wanted to come off a little tougher, like, I’m not this bubblegum girl. I think it was a good choice because it left her room to grow.

Then, all of a sudden, she turned into a woman overnight. I remember when we were getting ready for that the MTV awards show, and she wore the yellow and black Cavalli dress. It was the first time she’d really worn something couture, like a full-on gown. When she walked out I teared up and she asked me, What’s wrong with you, and I said, You’re a grown woman!”

can everyone stop acting like “strong female characters who are badass and can still be feminine!!!!” is somehow revolutionary…. i wanna see strong tomboy female characters, strong butch female characters, female characters saving the day with hairy armpits and dirty sneakers and ugly cargo shorts. of course feminine strong female characters are great bc theyre still strong female characters, but praising their femininity in particular is so odd when female characters have only ever been feminine, theyre expected to be and not accepted otherwise

once i saw people get pissy that a lot of people considered buttercup from the powerpuff girls a trans boy because its saying that all tomboys are equivalent to men or smth and its toxic and i get it but like

a lot of transmasculine people are read a tomboys when theyre little, yknow? i personally identified wth buttercup and i didnt know buttercup was supposed to be a girl for years. shes a tomboy, but i felt a deeper connection to her other than the tomboy thing

im older now and understand my gender identity and seeing the trans boy buttercup stuff made me feel really nice but like apparently trans boy buttercup is too toxic to feature on this site who CARES it perfectly fits the self discovery trail for a lot of trans masc people

Sometimes I have very immature thoughts when I see comments under videos and things with Amber and a male idol and these females are like “oh it’s okay. It’s just Amber” like she’s no threat. Like she’s not a woman. Certainly not a woman a male idol could be attracted to.

I want to reply in all caps something like “SHE’S BEAUTIFUL AND I HOPE SHE’S BANGING ALL YOUR BIASES!” But that’s not what Jesus would do. So I just thumbs down their comments.

The fake relationship trope is certainly one of our favorites here, and one that’s hard to come across in published YA novels. So, we’ve complied a list of some of our favorites and well known books with fake dating, and we hope you enjoy!

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before #1) by Jenny Han

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is the story of Lara Jean, who has never openly admitted her crushes, but instead wrote each boy a letter about how she felt, sealed it, and hid it in a box under her bed. But one day Lara Jean discovers that somehow her secret box of letters has been mailed, causing all her crushes from her past to confront her about the letters: her first kiss, the boy from summer camp, even her sister’s ex-boyfriend, Josh. As she learns to deal with her past loves face to face, Lara Jean discovers that something good may come out of these letters after all.

The problem is that days after prom, it’s not the real Bradley she’s thinking about, but the stand-in. The one whose name she doesn’t even know. But tracking him down doesn’t mean they’re done faking a relationship. Gia owes him a favor and his sister intends to see that he collects: his ex-girlfriend’s graduation party—three hours, zero commitment, a few white lies.

Just when Gia begins to wonder if she could turn her fake boyfriend into a real one, Bradley comes waltzing back into her life, exposing her lie, and threatening to destroy her friendships and her new-found relationship.

And she hates it. With just one year left to change her rank, she devises a plan to become the first type by homecoming, and she sets her sights on the perfect date—Justin Carter, Fairfield Academy’s biggest hottie and most notorious player.

With 57 days until the dance, Aly launches Operation Sex Appeal and sheds her tomboy image. The only thing left is for Justin actually to notice her. Enter best friend Brandon Taylor, the school’s second biggest hottie, and now Aly’s pretend boyfriend. With his help, elevating from “funny friend” to “tempting vixen” is only a matter of time.

But when everything goes according to plan, the inevitable “break up” leaves their friendship in shambles, and Aly and Brandon with feelings they can’t explain. And the fake couple discovers pretending can sometimes cost you the one thing you never expected to want.

But when she hears a rumor that he hooked up with her she gives him a choice: be her boyfriend for a month to show other guys that she’s dateable—despite her overprotective and very intimidating brothers—or deal with the angry, cage-fighting boyfriend of the girl he actually did hook up with.

Bryce didn’t know the other Haley even had a boyfriend. He was just trying to get his ex off his back. And now, not only is he being blackmailed, he’s being blackmailed by an honor student. His new “girlfriend” has two three-legged dogs, her father mows grass at the country club, and she's…well, difficult. And different.
