From Goodreads:

No one has ever believed that Mo and Annie are just friends. How can a guy and a girl really be best friends?

Then the summer before senior year, Moโ€™s father loses his job, and by extension his work visa. Instantly, life for Annie and Mo crumbles. Although Mo has lived in America for most of his life, heโ€™ll be forced to move to Jordan. The prospect of leaving his home is devastating, and returning to a world where he no longer belongs terrifies him.

Desperate to save him, Annie proposes they tell a colossal lieโ€”that they are in love. Mo agrees because marrying Annie is the only way he can stay. Annie just wants to keep her best friend, but what happens when it becomes a choice between saving Mo and her own chance at real love?

Why I Can’t Wait: This sounds like a beautiful story of friendship and love with a lot of real factors involving immigration laws and such that I’ve never encountered in a read before. I look forward to reading it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    EEE I am so excited for The Vow. The love story sounds so sweet and that cover is so simplistic yet adorable!

    This sounds pretty good but I have one issue in that the guy is obviously muslim and I don’t feel comfortable reading scenes of a muslim guy making out or whatever when it is against his religion.. sorry for going all serious on this subject ๐Ÿ˜›
