It's all about the way you do the things you do

For some reason when I meet someone for the first time, I feel compelled to tell them this. “Hi, my name is Sadie Price. Yeah, great to meet you, too! People hate me.”

Taking the phrase 'The grass is always greener on the other side' to a whole new level "Accidental It Girl" by Libby Street [aka Sarah Bushweller and Emily S. Morris] deals with celebrity status and paparazzi. Sadie is a celebrity photographer who thinks that if she doesn't chase after her "targets" (the celebs) then she's can't be "one of those" types ... and she likes what she does. While celebrity Ethan Wyatt hates that the photographers follow him constantly .... so much so that after he arrives in the New Jersey airport (because he is planning on moving to New York) and meets Sadie ... then encounters her a few more times .. he makes a plan to get her back with her own medicine. Now with rumors spread to the nation about this new mysterious girl .... will Sadie be able to stand the pressure? Or will Ethan's plans backfire?

3.5 out of 5 stars!! The book started out VERY slow .... if I didn't pay for it then I might have stopped there but thankfully after finishing a quarter of the book ... it picked up and became really funny!! The story is mixed in with it's own tabloid feel to it. Definitely cute.

For more information on this book and/or on any of this duo's other books then please check out their website.
