And suddenly, in a whirlwind of Tweets, IMs, texts, and phone calls, Josie finds herself in the middle of a flirtatious friendship that has the potential for complete harmony.

The story tells of a fangirl falling in love with a pop star, and what real-life fangirl doesn’t dream of doing that?

It is probably the quickest I have finished a book in a year. A pretty good, quick read. I picked this up because there’s another book with the same title coming out in the fall, and this caught my eye while searching.

But don’t let all fangiel that stop you, because between the moments I wanted to bang my head against the wall because of the huge stereotypes in this book there is When I first picked up this book it looked amazingly interesting.

And suddenly, in a whirlwind of Tweets, IMs, texts, and phone calls, Josie finds herself in the middle of a flirtatious friendship that has the potential for complete harmony.

In what could have been an escapist fantasy romp, E! Ken Baker did an amazing job creating this story, and putting me it.

He likes her lyrics, they text and whatnot. I will now share something as a writer I feel: Written By Brittan Fangirl is a fun read with meaningful undertones. I’m used to reading about more cerebral, sophisticated teens in YA, but the truth is, I’ve spent enough time on Twitter that the ones here rang just as true to me. When Ashely meets Peter for winning she tells about taking Josie’s song, so Josie also gets to meet Peter. She loves to write songs, hang out with her best friends Ashley and Christopher, and obsess over her favorite singer, Peter Maxx.

The romance was also far too rushed to be at all relatable or believable. He wants a normal girl and she wants to write songs. An almost-fifteen fourteen, but I mean messages her on twitter Peter is a superstar would wants a normal life.

When Josie’s best friend’s betrayal unexpectedly brings the two together, will they be able to create a baer that will conquer the flashbulbs, fame, and tabloid drama? I couldn’t lose myself in the story because I kept rolling me eyes at the ridiculous speech patterns.

Great book with great mean I found this book when I was watching E!

And here it is in the form of a rambling rant: How can two stupid kids this coming from a teenage girl who have only communicated by texting possibly know that they are soul mates?

And I like that. I felt like I was Josie the whole time I read this book. Normally, I am a sucker for any book, movie, or tv show that centers around the music industry or performing arts school, but those expectations went down the drain By page 8 where the first acronym appeared. Girls, ages 11 to 15 Personal Critique: As a result, they got too much at one point. Even if Josie may completely, totally, and unequivocally be his biggest I loved how the story line was about a modern day pop star’s struggle with fame and an ordinary girl’s hopes and dreams.

Also, while I understand the use of text speak here, it still drove me nuts. Review quote “[A] heart-racing, behind-the-music story of love and being true to oneself. Books that make up stories about things that you want to experience but probably won’t ever happen, are the kind that can make you smile.

Very good and intense. May 03, K Whatsherface rated it it was ok Shelves: It isn’t great literature, but it is an interesting read.
