Map to the Stars by Jen Malone [ARC Review]

Goodreads Summary: Author Jen Malone draws on her real-life experiences as a movie studio publicist to bring you an insider peek at love, Hollywood-style. 

The California dream was supposed to give seventeen-year-old Annie Shelton a fresh start far removed from her dad’s unusual betrayal. But when things don’t go according to plan in La La Land, Annie’s mom snags a last-minute gig as makeup artist to a teen movie idol and finagles a spot for her daughter on his European promotional tour.

Down-to-earth Annie would rather fangirl architectural sights than an arrogant A-lister. That is, until behind-the-scenes Graham Cabot turns out to be more sweetly vulnerable than she could have imagined. 

Too bad falling for a poster boy isn’t all red carpets and star treatment, especially when you factor in obnoxious fans, an overprotective assistant, a stage mom/manager, and a beefy bodyguard.

But it isn’t until the paparazzi make an appearance that things get really sticky…
Honestly… I’m never been a big fan of books with Hollywood themes. *grin*
I think you changed that… well kinda.
I just realized that Hollywood-themed YA ones are waaaay cooler than those Adult ones.

*MC’s Corner* 

Note: Spoilers.

• I hate long YA Contemporary books. So this, being that short is a plus points. Though… ironically I kinda wanted more. (You can slap my face now.)

• I read the little biography of Jen Malone by the end of the book… and it says that she worked on Hollywood… so I think this make it next to believable.
There are some things/scenes in there that is… kinda hard to, you know, believe?
(I always check the “About the Author” part before I start reading a book… so thank God!

• THE THING IS… don’t date a celebrity unless you plan on becoming one. (LOL… as if I can find a celebrity that I can date. *high*)

• This book I recommend it for girls… I don’t think it’s for boys.
