Summary: Liana Marie is a celebrity in the Hollywood world that most people fantasize about. While others fantasize she just wants to learn how to deal with it. She doesn’t know who she truly is. She has been in the business for all she can remember. Liana doesn’t know if she is the characters she plays or the Liana she truly is. On top of all this she is in love with her best friend, Manuel. She wants to express her feeling towards him but just can’t because she is afraid of what will come. Not to mention that she is about to graduate from her high school that she attends between the movies she makes.
My Review: Let me start off by saying how much I love this book! I mean loved it! Still can’t get over it. Every emotion that she goes through I went with her. When she was upset or angry I was too! When all she wanted to do was cry I did too! Even when she was filled with over joy I was too! I know weird but that was how great the writing was.
Liana is a seventeen year old who just wants to be a normal teenager, not the movie starlet Marie. The Hollywood business knows her as Marie, while her true family and friends call her Liana, or Lia. What I loved about this character was that it was not just Hollywood fame problems; it was the same problems that most teenage girls go through.
I loved Manuel as well. He is the best, best friend ever. He always wants to protect Liana and truly loves her as well. He drops anything and every thing just to be with her. Yet they both won’t come out with there feelings toward each other. Or will they? Mmm, I guess you have to read the book to find out.
Another great thing about this book was how many plot twists there were. I mean a lot of plot twists that made me want to throw this book across the room but couldn’t because I had to turn the page to find out what happened next. As soon as thought that finally Liana can be happy some twist happens.
Carla J. Hanna’s book is so great and I can’t wait for the second one to this series. I mean like I need to read the second book now! That is how good the first one was! Read it! I promise you won’t regret it.
