In this modern-day love story, Girl likes Boy, Girl takes photo of Boy and posts it online, Boy becomes accidentally insta-famous. And what starts out as an innocent joke spirals into a whirlwind adventure that could change both their lives—and their hearts—forever. But are fame and love worth the price?
This book really didn’t do much for me. Yeah, it was cute and I wanted Rachel and Kyle to get together, but at the same time I really didn’t care that much. I was like “oh, okay this is happening. Wonderful. Have a good life.”
Honestly the whole time I was reading this book I was thinking “Alex from Target” (remember him?). The story didn’t feel all that original, the characters were kind of flat, and it felt like there was a lot of drama thrown in just to fill space. Half of the stuff that happened was just unnecessary and didn’t add anything to the story.
A lot of stuff in this book also just felt forced. I didn’t really love any of the characters. They were boring. The story was predictable. Everything was just kind of “eh.”
If you follow my reviews, you probably know that I am not the biggest contemporary fan. I decided to pick up this book because the premise sounded cute, and because I’ve been having some luck with the last few contemps I read. But sadly this one just did not do it for me.
If you are into YA contemporary romance, maybe this book is for you. Maybe you’ll have more fun with it than I did. The story was definitely cute, and there was nothing “wrong” with it… it just really wasn’t for me.
I am going to give #famous two out of five hearts.
