Close to Famous

There is something about this kind of book that doesn't give me high hopes about it's contents. It's definitely the way it looks but I can't really explain what. To tell ya'll the truth, the only reason why I even read it is because I was craving cupcakes at the time and the ones on the cover look sweeeett! I'm glad I did. I don't usually read this kind of books. The most important difference was probably that the narrator is a kid - about to start seventh grade. This got me confused because I wasn't expecting it. It bothered me at first that Foster was acting like a kid... and then I realized that she is a kid. It stopped bothering me then. It is a truly inspiring story. Foster and everyone whom she meets at her new town are dreamers, and they learn to stand up for what they believe, what they want. A lesson that we all most get through are heads in order to enjoy life. A really easy read, took me only a couple of hours. Can't wait to bake the Vanilla cupcakes. I would have liked a little more character development but overall, the book was well written. Although, I must say that the whole escaped convict thing was very unrealistic. I can forgive it though because it was funny (in a way) and I wasn't expecting something amazing. Read it if you have time, but it won't kill you if you don't.
