Can Dreams Come True?
Krysten Lindsay Hager
Genre: YA Contemporary Fiction
Release Date: March 20th 2018
Cecily has always had a huge crush on singer Andrew Holiday and she wants to be an actress, so she tags along when her friend auditions for his new video. However, the director isn’t looking for an actress, but rather the girl next door—and so is Andrew. Cecily gets a part in the video and all of Andrew’s attention on the set. Her friend begins to see red and Cecily’s boyfriend is seeing green—as in major jealousy. A misunderstanding leaves Cecily and her boyfriend on the outs and Andrew hopes to pick up the pieces as he’s looking for someone more stable in his life than the models he’s dated. Soon Cecily begins to realize Andrew understands her more than her small-town boyfriend—but can her perfect love match really be her favorite rock star?
This is a “Rock Star Romance” but a cute, clean, teen version that will appeal to younger readers.
It’s well written and Cecily is a sweet, relatable character. Your typical “girl-next-door” type who actually listens to her parents and follows a moral compass. It’s a very sweet love story and if you like this sort of thing, then I think you will enjoy it. And moms out there… You can safely recommend this one to your kids 😉
I enjoy Krysten’s books but in this case, I think the story was a little too cute for me (personal taste and all that) so it does affect in my overall rating but as I said it’s more about preference than anything else.
Rating… 3.5 Stars
