I adored this book!! Thistle is such a fantastic main character--I loved her fierce devotion to her dad (even though their relationship is messy and full of resentment) and the moral dilemmas the story examines are so compelling. I felt so sorry for certain characters while kind of hating them at the same time, which is such a hard balance to achieve!

The romance aspect was really well done and there are some seriously swoony scenes! I especially loved the excerpts from Lemonade Skies. It was so

Thank you so much to Edelweiss for this ARC! I saw this book being compared to Rainbow Rowell’s work, and I did not waste time to immerse myself in this intricate and honest world. It was a roller coaster from start to finish, with tension mounting from the very first page.

We are introduced to Thistle as she has just released the second book of her Lemonade Skies trilogy. She is a passionate, nerdy, and selfless girl with a huge secret: she is not the true author of her best-sellers. Her mother

A DRC was provided by Edelweiss in exchange for a fair and honest review.

We've all had our fandom moments where enjoyment, identification, love and ownership issues with a beloved book intersect to teeter a reader on the brink of weirdness and beyond. A Rowell, a King, a Martin and a Rowling all know the highs and lows of being the sort of contemporary author who attracts a readership following that puts the fan in fanatical. Thistle Tate knows this journey well since she is the all too popular

Although I DNF'd this book, I would recommend it to others, particularly those interested in cozy mysteries and YA romance. This book explores both a publishing world intrigue, as well as the story of a teenage girl coming to terms with having lost her mother at a young age. The plotline is interesting and unique. Where this story lost me was the romance novel tropes and the heterosexuality to the exclusion of other types of love interest. That said, it is a great, light summer read, especially ...more

This book was what I thought it would be, and yet not at the same time. It was an interesting idea and I think it was executed well by the author, but it wasn't...amazing. It was GOOD, but not mind blowing.

Thanks to Edelweiss for the ARC!
