Overall, I liked this book. I love the attention it brings to the mental health and struggles of famous musicians, actors, etc. I didn't really like Roxie, but I felt sorry for her. I don't agree with what Joshua did whatsoever, but I do understand his intentions. I think it would have been beneficial to everyone had he gone about it in a different way, though. I didn't like the ending; it felt pointless to turn things around so suddenly, and quite frankly, it felt rushed. I believe if the ending had been sadder it would have been better. ( )

A book for teenagers, coming of age in a world that is focused on fame in the entertainment industry and the toll it takes on rising stars, their friends and family. Connect this with first true love, and you have a good read told from the perspective not of the star but of his girl friend waiting on the side line. ( )

So being honest I'm not sure how I feel about this book. It does have a feeling of a book I have read before this one.
On another note I'm sure a lot of "stars" can relate. This book is about a teen that loves music. Gets signed by big guys and falls into the pressure stardom gives you. He cant handle it and doesn't like it and is very unhappy with his life. He finds a way to solve it but hes not sure if it's what he wanted. I wont be a spoiler so I'll leave it at that. ( )

I was sent this book by the publisher. My ratings and reviews will be my own personal opinions and are in no way influenced by publishers or authors who may have sent me books to review.

I have not heard anyone talking about this book. Before agreeing to review this, I looked it up on Goodreads. The first thing I saw was this was the perfect read for the Justin Bieber era (which is not me). Do not let that stop you from picking this up though. I read the premise and still wanted to give this a try as it sounded like something I would enjoy. As I started reading, I was thinking this was going to be your typical YA Rockstar romance. I was wrong and in the best kind of way.

This is a story about fame, social media, love, loss, and so much more. There is also a little mystery thrown in to make it stand out even more. There was just something about the writing and the story that was memorizing. I cannot really explain it. I just loved the direction this was taking as you learn more about Joshua through the eyes of his best friend/girlfriend Roxie. You not only learn about Joshua and his breakthrough into the entertainment world, but about their childhood and his path to and after fame. My heart really broke as I read about their story and the demons we all hide from the outside world.

The mystery is much different than I thought it was going to be. You actually do not have a mystery around what happened at first, but more of why it happened. I wish the second half of the book focused more on the mystery. I lost interest once it started to follow Tyler, the brother of Joshua. It does all come together in the end though. I got really excited once the mystery started back up again. I would give the first half of this story 5 stars. The middle half started to take a direction I did not enjoy as much, but it was still good.

I read this in one sitting and is perfect if you are looking for a quick read. It is very fast paced and just under 300 pages. I would have liked a little more at the end and wanted more of Roxie and Joshua.

Overall, I ended up enjoying this more than I thought I would. I definitely recommend it as I do think it brings something different to the YA world. I will be picking up the other book by the author soon! ( )
