Teen SRC 2019 – Accidental Superstar by Marianne Levy

Accidental Superstar

Accidental Superstar by Marianne Levy

I wasn’t so sure if this was a teen book or not, but I borrowed it anyway, because, well, the cover looked cool. Yeah, yeah. I know, don’t judge a book by it’s cover, but I just had to know what this book was about. Which I did, eventually. And it wasn’t as glamorous as I thought it’d be. It was actually, honestly speaking, quite uneventful. But, I didn’t mind too much.

Basically this book is about a girl named Katie Cox. She mostly spends her time hiding out in the shadows. But this all changes when a video of her singing goes viral. Katie receives a bunch of record deals, including a recording contract. But Katie doesn’t find fame to be all that perfect.

So, at first, Katie seemed like a pretty down-to-earth kind of girl who likes to make music and stuff, but as I continued to read, I kinda hated Katie. She turned into some bratty high-school kid. But then, at the end, Katie was this sweet, innocent girl again. All in all, I think this book is…well…interesting-ish. 🤷‍♀️

Teen SRC 2019 – Take a Bow by Elizabeth Eulberg

Okay. So, because I trust you guys (mostly), I have decided that you guys should know what’s been up with me. Here goes nothing: I got an AVM.

And, FYI, I’m not gonna spend my precious time explaining what that is. You have Google. Use it.

Now. Enough about me. Let’s talk books. Take a Bow is truly a book I’ll read again and again, and never get tired of it. This book has 4 main characters: Emme, Sophie, Carter, and Ethan. All 4 of them are students at this fancy performing arts school, where being famous is the overall goal. But for Emme, Carter, and Ethan, that’s not who they aspire to be. Ethan starts falling for Emme, while Carter seems to have vicious difficulties of his own, including his controlling girlfriend Sophie. While Ethan, Carter, and Emme prefer to stay in the shadows, Sophie would stop at nothing to become a star. Even if it means betraying her best friend, Emme.

Honestly, when I finished the book, I wanted to crawl inside and hug all the characters a trillion times! This book was so adorably funny, I definitely recommend you read it!
