"Shooting Stars" (a famous, glowing Lexi review)

Hello, loves!

Ever wanted to stalk a celeb? Like, you wonder how those people have the money and equipment and time to actually follow this person around? I couldn't imagine. (Well, Johnny Depp, okay, maybe...) Then there are paparazzi. Like Lady Gaga's song: "...I'm your biggest fan / I'll follow you until you love me / Papa-Paparazzi..." (Yes, I totally worked Lady Gaga into a review, lol.) Those people at least get paid for it.

Okay, anyways, this novel is about how far somebody would go to get a shot of a celeb... Shooting Stars by Allison Rushby.

Summary, thanks to the good folks at Goodreads: "Meet Josephine Foster, or Zo Jo as she’s called in the biz. The best pint-sized photographer of them all, Jo doesn’t mind doing what it takes to get that perfect shot, until she’s sent on an undercover assignment to shoot Ned Hartnett—teen superstar and the only celebrity who’s ever been kind to her—at an exclusive rehabilitation retreat in Boston. The money will be enough to pay for Jo’s dream: real photography classes, and maybe even quitting her paparazzi gig for good. Everyone wants to know what Ned’s in for. But Jo certainly doesn't know what she’s in for: falling in love with Ned was never supposed to be part of her assignment."

Basically, this novel is very interesting, and will keep you on the edge of your seat the entire time. You'll be surprised how realistic the characters are, and how this story could honestly happen. It would be rather easy to set up this job, actually.

The characters were truly interesting, and this novel shows that not everybody leading a sunshine-looking life is happy or without issues. The situations and slow reveal of a bigger picture are all very well done. The scenes were very realistic, and sensory. You could just feel everything and picture every scene.

It's a great book that is a fun read, so I definitely recommend it.
