A one-word summary of this book by author Janette Rallison: Fabulous!
Sixteen-year-old Jessica is a Hollywood star wannabe. When a real-live Hollywood star's son, Jordan, moves into her town, she can't help but seize the opportunity to use his connections to keep her almost-cut school play in production. The problem: she promised him she wouldn't tell anyone who his father was. Jordan is the new kid in school, and he's only told Jessica his real identity. Now all the school knows, and any hopes Jordan had of laying low and making real friends are dashed, along with his blossoming relationship with Jessica. Jessica is desperate for forgiveness, but as the school play rolls on, forgiveness seems less and less likely to come.
This book was a load of laughs from beginning to end. The opening night of the play, Westside Story, which the kids are forced to water down to gang-free political correctness, is I think the funniest scene I may have ever read in a book. I laughed so hard, there were tears in my eyes. Seriously. This is a fun, fast-paced, totally hilarious read. Two thumbs way up.
