Book Description

Emma's not sure that LA's for her, but when she accompanies her sister Jane to an audition, a chance meeting with a teen TV star starts to change her new sunshine lifestyle for the better... But what about Oscar, so far her only friend in LA, who's turning out NOT to be the idiot she thought he was?

Soon Emma begins to find herself torn between two boys and reconsidering her entire future.

Maybe LA's not that bad after all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Light, fluffy, and fun to read June 20, 2012
Emma Hearts LA was an adorable, quick read. A perfect little treat for long summer afternoons on the beach. While it's not exactly a book that will change your life, it's most definitely an enjoyable, charming book with a simple but solid plot line, and characters that you'll adore. I honestly did not expect to like it that much, heck - I did not expect to like it all! - but I couldn't help falling under its charm. In the end, this book proved do be really fun and entertaining, and although I did have a few problems with it, they were small and easy to overlook thanks to this book's undeniable sweetness and readability.

If you had a chance to read Keris Stainton's previous book, Jessie Hearts NYC, you probably remember Emma, Jessie's best friend. You'll be pleased to know that Emma now gets her very own story, and what a story it is! The book kicks off with Emma arriving in Los Angeles, where her brilliant astro-physicist mom was offered a new job. Emma's not very thrilled about the move overseas (reluctant to leave her friends and father behind), but there isn't much she can do about it, the decision has been made. Shortly after arriving in the US, Emma realizes that LA isn't as bad as she thought. In fact, it's every teenage girl's dream destination - filled with sunny beaches, celebrities, vibrant night life, hot guys, beautiful tourist attractions and plenty of new possibilities. Reunited with her nerdy childhood friend, Oscar, Emma quickly adapts to the new surroundings. She's also very pleased to see that Oscar is no longer the awkward, annoying kid he used be. He's a blush-worthy, attractive, confident young man, and one that seems to be interested in Emma in a romantic way. And he's not the only one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great read from Keris Stainton June 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I simply couldn't wait for my hard copy of this book to be mailed to me from Amazon so I downloaded it onto my Kindle while I was on holiday. I finished reading it yesterday and it was gorgeous; a funny and sweet read. Just as she did in her previous two books, Keris Stainton does that marvellous thing with authentic dialogue again. If I was a teenaged girl, I'd want to be BFF's with Emma and would have a massive crush on Oscar. But most of all, I'd want the chance to visit LA like Emma and see everything Emma sees and do everything Emma does.

This is a lovely young adult read which you'll finish with a smile on your face and a warm fuzzy feeling inside. I'll be buying this as presents for my friends with teenagers.
