Perfect for fans of Sarah Dessen, Jenny Han, and Susane Colasanti, Angie Stanton’s swoon-worthy romance–about an ordinary girl and a young rock star–will keep readers on the edge of their seats . . . and leave them wanting more.
In an instant, Libby’s life went from picture-perfect to a nightmare. After surviving a terrible car accident, Libby is abandoned by her father and left with her controlling aunt. A new town, a new school, no friends–Libby is utterly alone. But then she meets Peter.
The lead singer in a rock band with his brothers, Peter hates that his parents overly manage his life. Constantly surrounded by family, Peter just wants to get away. And when he meets Libby, he’s finally found the one person who just wants to be with him, not the rock star.
But while Peter battles his family’s growing interference in both his music and personal life, Libby struggles with her aunt, who turns nastier each day. And even though Libby and Peter desperately want to be together, their drastically different lives threaten to keep them apart forever.

Review by Twinsie Angie
Original Review HERE from December 2012 (Be kind. I had just started blogging and reviewing…LOL)
I was given this audio book from the author for an honest review.
I read this book when I first started blogging and 6 years later when the author offered an audio I jumped.
I enjoyed the narration of the story and the narrators voice was enjoyable to listen too. Sometimes a bad narrator can make a book not so enjoyable.
I still enjoyed this story like I did 6 years ago. I loved the theme of family and dreams plus wants and desires.
I am still not a huge YA reader, but the story of Libby and Peter did pull at me. I will say the entire time I am reading of Peter and his brother being rock stars I kept seeing the Jonas Brothers in my mind. LOL The story has deep themes and Libby will just slay you with her sweet and innocent persona.
I don’t get much time to “reread” but I am so glad I grabbed this audio when offered. I remembered loving this story and it hasn’t changed for me at all.
