My Feelings:


Her whole life, Alexia Garcia has been told that she looks just like pop star Kari Kingsley, and one day when Alexia’s photo filters through the Internet, she’s offered a job to be Kari’s double. This would seem like the opportunity of a lifetime, but Alexia’s mother has always warned her against celebrities.

Rebelliously, Alexia flies off to L.A. and gets immersed in a celebrity life. Not only does she have to get used to getting anything she wants, she romances the hottest lead singer on the charts, and finds out that her own father is a singing legend. Through it all, Alexia must stay true to herself, which is hard to do when you are pretending to be somebody else!

My Review:
When you ask teenage girls what they dream about, a lot of them would say a celebrity life, full of glitz, glamour and designer clothes. A life in the spotlight. They don’t think about the drama, the pressure and the media that comes along with it. Neither does first.

Alexia’s character was really sweet and you could tell that she wanted only the best for others and herself. She was also very independent, smart and very grounded. A character that a lot of girls can relate too.

This book is filled with drama and it makes you want to read it even faster than you already are. Questions keep popping in your mind when she makes the wrong decision over and over again while trying to be true to herself. Is there going to be a happy ending for Alexia? Can love survive the lies?

I have to say that the writing is very good. It was easy to read and the characters were well developed. The comments of the grandmother were hilarious. They made me laugh several times very loud.

This book is the first one that I read written by Janette Rallison and I loved it. I took a look at her website and it made me add some more to my growing list of books.

All in all, I adored the book and I believe it’s perfect for the summer. It’s easy, light, fun and heart-warming. A story that makes you fall in love with the characters and hope for a happy ending.

I've been wondering what bloggers think of this book but I haven't seen any reviews of it except for yours. Sounds like a great summer read! Kind of similar to Meg Cabot's recent series, too. Thanks for the review!

Awesome review! I read this one a couple of months ago and loved it a lot. Also, if you're looking for more books to read by this author, you should add Just One Wish to your list. It's such a great book as well.
