Everyone at Hundred Oaks High knows that career mentoring day is a joke. So when Maya Henry said she wanted to be a rock star, she never imagined she’d get to shadow *the* Jesse Scott, Nashville’s teen idol.
But spending the day with Jesse is far from a dream come true. He’s as gorgeous as his music, but seeing all that he’s accomplished is just a reminder of everything Maya’s lost: her trust, her boyfriend, their band, and any chance to play the music she craves. Not to mention that Jesse’s pushy and opinionated. He made it on his own, and he thinks Maya’s playing back up to other people’s dreams. Does she have what it takes to follow her heart—and go solo?
Here we are! We’ve made it to the big-time!
I ADORED this book. I always thought that I could pick up any Miranda Kenneally book and expect a sweet story with an undercurrent of sporty goodness. I am GLAD to see that Kenneally has more stories in her repertoire as well. Jesse’s Girl is a refreshing change of pace. This story still fit like a warm, snuggly glove though — I think that’s because it still follows the same themes (FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS!). Kenneally writes from the heart about things she knows personally, and it shows. Now all we need is a story about someone who wants to go into politics, or perhaps becomes an interpreter for the United Nations!! Don’t let us down here!
At any rate, Jesse is witty and hilarious. I would SO swoon over him if he were a real celebrity. He has amazing chemistry with Maya! And a bunch of the supporting characters were great too. I’m glad we got to see a school principal from a more “human” perspective. Everyone is a person!
One issue — that outfit in the cover is SO not Maya. Also, if Sam Henry is a real blonde, why does Maya have to be a bleached blonde?!
