This is a cute contemporary romance. I was glad that it wasn’t all about Abby trying to become famous or entirely music focused. When you meet Abby she is already famous and the story is about her life, not her music. She is a very likable character and not an egocentric pop star at all. However, she is surrounded by HORRIBLE people (her mother included!). You feel so badly for Abby’s situation. I loved Sophie as well. She was a great character. This book is pretty fast paced for the most part and there is a LOT that happens.
What I wasn’t crazy about: The last few chapters were odd for me. The book had moved along with so much drama and danger, then when the threat is over, the book really slowed for me. I kept thinking someone else major was going to happen, but it didn’t. It isn’t a bad ending by any means, it just didn’t seem to fit with the rest of the book. However, maybe thats just me!
