CATCH A FALLING STAR by Kim CulbertsonHitting the shelves on April 29, 2014 from Scholastic PressBook Description:A deliciously charming novel about finding true love . . . and yourself.
Nothing ever happens in Little, CA. Which is just the way Carter Moon likes it. But when Hollywood arrives to film a movie starring former child star turned PR mess Adam Jakes, everything changes. Carter's town becomes a giant glittery set and, much to her annoyance, everyone is starry-eyed for Adam. Carter seems to be the only girl not falling all over herself to get a glimpse of him. Which apparently makes her perfect for the secret offer of a lifetime: playing the role of Adam's girlfriend while he's in town, to improve his public image, in exchange for a hefty paycheck. Her family really needs the money and so Carters agrees. But it turns out Adam isn't at all who she thought he was. As they grow closer, their relationship walks a blurry line between what's real and what's fake, and Carter must open her eyes to the scariest of unexplored worlds - her future. Can Carter figure out what she wants out of life AND get the guy? Or are there no Hollywood endings in real life?
There are two types of romance that I have a serious soft spot for...the first is sports romances, and the second is romances with celebrities (in a way, I guess athletes count as celebrities, too :P). I have a tendency to day dream, so I just really enjoy the idea of an everyday main character meeting somebody famous. :P Even without the celebrity aspect, I think that Catch a Falling Star sounds fantastic! As a small town girl, I'm also always a fan of exciting things happening in other small towns, and I have a feeling that I'm going to relate to the main character of this book, Carter, extremely well! I seriously can't wait to get a copy of this book in my hands! :D
