Lily loves music, or at least she used to. Now playing the piano is her life and she's missing out on all the normal stuff. When her friends come back from spring break, each with hair highlights and talking about boys, Lily knows something's changed within their group. She feels like an outcast and she rebels against her teacher and her parents.
They come up with a solution where Lily will play keyboard in her piano teacher's nephew's band for a month to regain her passion for music. The catch? She's crushing over Rafe, the nephew, and mentioned to her friends that they're dating. Now her friends want to meet him and all kinds of lies are flying out of her mouth. How can she balance everything in her life and show off her coolness?
The BOYFRIEND TRICK offers an outlook on passion, being different while fitting in, and the crazy world of boys.
