Teen TV celebrities Jenna and Jonah (real names, Charlie Tracker and Fielding Withers) make more money in a month than most people do in a lifetime. They can't stand to be in the same room as each other, but to boost the TV ratings their agents make them a 'real life' couple. Then the deception is uncovered by the paparazzi, and Charlie and Fielding have to disappear to weather the media storm. It's not until they're far off the grid of the Hollywood circuit that they realise there's more to each of them than shiny hair and a winning smile.

My Thoughts

After reading The Kindest Thing, this book was a light, quick fun read giving an insight into the lives of two teens that act in a family network show, the story started of quite exaggerated and i was thinking that it was a bit over the top. I was not sure if it was my cuppa tea , but then the story line takes a different direction and we get to know the real teens behind the celebrity facade.

The romance between Charlie (who plays Jenna in the show) and Fielding (who plays Jonah) was quite entertaining and funny at times but very predictable and there were parts that i felt dragged out or went on a tandem. This book would definitely be a great fun read for a young teenager and while it did entertain me i thought it was a bit young for me, i am 31 so i like something a bit more challenging.
