" A feel-good story . . . we all deserve great reads like this "
Star Beck is super-duper megastar famous. She rocks literally every night in concert for thousands of cheering fans. But the pop star life tour buses, fauxmances, size 0 minis is getting a little old. Star can t help wondering what it would be like to be a regular girl without paparazzi trailing her every move, and without people being nice just because, well, she's Star Beck. And when she discovers that her mom has been lying to her for years about something very important, Star decides to find out what the world beyond her stage is like after all.
In the blink of an emerald green eye, Star finds herself . . . buying a car. Eating cheeseburgers. Swapping her stilettos for flip-flops. Getting a job that doesn t require dancing, winking, or mall appearances. And falling for the cutest, realest boy she's ever met.
