About the book
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?

It's easy to forget how fickle teenage and young adult love and relationships can be. Here today, gone tomorrow. Bodies pulsing with hormones and emotions with underdeveloped brains hurrying to catch up with the aforementioned. You never quite experience love, lust and heartache ever again the way you do during the formative years.

Cecily Taylor loves her boyfriend, but she has a fan crush on celebrity and singer Andrew Holiday. So when he turns up in town to film a music video she decides to tag along with a classmate who wants to audition.

She and Andrew get on like a house on fire, perhaps because she isn't pretending to be something she isn't. She is just plain old Cecily, which is what appeals to Andrew. She doesn't pretend to be interested or to listen. She is sincere and her reactions are honest.

Meanwhile her boyfriend is being shady, which makes her jealous and insecure. It also makes her question the friendships she has.

It's a drama-filled YA read with a great message about being enough for someone by just being yourself - no matter who they are.

Hager gives readers jealousy, anger, disappointment, anxiety, betrayal, fluttering butterflies, love, hope and most importantly the message about believing in yourself. If everyone wanted the same type of partner then the world would be a very one-sided and lonely place. There is a place for all of us and usually a person or two, perhaps even more.
