Dating Sarah Cooper By Siera Maley


A fluffy fun one. Friends-turned-lovers, coming-of-age and fake relationships: this book straddles many tropes with élan. Though it truly stretches suspension-of-disbelief with the basic reason for the two MCs to fake being a couple, it is just so cutely done that you flow with the whole thing.

Katie and Sarah are BFFs like forever. In a do-gooding moment, Katie reaches out to help Jake being bullied for being gay. Sarah comes over to Katie’s house and together they patch up Jake, who assumes they are a couple based on their interaction and invites them to his next school meeting. They agree little knowing that it is an LGBT group meeting that they’ve been invited to. Once there, Sarah somehow convinces herself that if she and Katie come out as a couple, the boy she has been hung up on for four years will somehow get interested in her, and she manages to get Katie on-board her hare-brained scheme.

The lighthearted way of writing and treatment of the story nevertheless covers some rather serious issues like peer reaction to gays; the bullying and hate that hitherto semi-popular kids are subjected to, dealing with confusion about one’s sexuality; taking the massive, scary step to cross from best friends to more.

The author has also achieved a rare feat: usually we like one MC more than the other. Even when we like both, one seems to have a little bit of a greater likeability factor. In this one, we like both the MCs equally. They are two completely different personalities but both are truly sweet. The author has also written the contexts for each MC so well that their behaviour seems to follow the right trajectory for them.

A quick, cute angst-free read that leaves you with a smile.
