Here is Audrey, she is a junior in High School, preparing for SAT's and learning, that her boyfriend is so... How can I say this? Yes he is so not interested in her. All he talks about is his band and his band and oh yes his band. So she does what every smart girl would do, she breaks up with him. Evan, her boyfriend, gets angry and writes a song about her. And than everything went out of control. Not only Evan and his band got famous, no all of a sudden Audrey is famous too. That made her life really, really...! Well she got singled out in school, takes classes in the principals office because paparazzi are shooting pictures of her in the classrooms. People at school sell information about her to the tabloids. Her best friend Victoria is enjoying all the attentions to much. She is trying to get free stuff and backstage passes for concerts, she really try's to make the most of the situation. Most of the time I thought that Audrey needs a new bestie.
The relationship with her new boyfriend isn't going so well. It is hard to read all about your Love-life in all the magazines and being watched and judged from the whole nation. I love, love, love James he is such a sweetie.
So lift your ass and go to your book-dealer or to your computer and get a copy.
Thanks to Goodreads for recommending that book to me. It was awesome. (less)

She is tall, blond with blue eyes, popular in school and a welcome guest at every Party. Like her sisters, she is a model and that very successful. With her you would like to change your life. But is that really so?
Her mother has depressions Her sister is anorexic Her best friend Sophie hates her And the whole school thinks she slept with Sophie’s boyfriend.
Isolated from all her friends, only Owen is talking to her. He is tall, muscular, mysterious and dangerous. He intimidates her, but he also helps her to get her life back.
This is a story about family and friendship.
Sarah Dessen creates her figures very carefully; you can tell that she puts a lot of time and effort into them. They feel very real and I can easily identify with them.
In this story, she jumps between past and present, so you get the answers bit by bit.
What happened between Annabel and Will (Sophie’s boyfriend)? Is there a chance for Annabel and Owen? What about the friendship between Annabel and Sophie?
I was forced to speculate wildly and could not put it down. With one bit it was swallowed.
There are passages where I had to smile, especially if Owens sister appears, but all in all this book gave me a lot to think. Dessen is dealing playfully with many serious issues without playing them down.
My conclusion: I’m really glad that my schooldays are long behind me.
I can highly recommend this book, for me it was a reference of Sarah Dessen’s work. After I finished this one, I order every single book from her. (less)
