Editorial Reviews

Review

Kirkus Reviews, December 15, 2013:
"Their interwoven narratives of Hollywood in the 1930s have more twists and turns than Mulholland Drive. Secrets abound, and enough is held back to ensure that the next volume will have plenty left to reveal. This sizzling sequel definitely delivers the goods: think Valley of the Dolls meets Gossip Girl."

Love Me is the second book, after Starstruck,.
and I may be biased, but the characters and the story that extended after Starstruck, makes me
wonder how long I am going to have to wait for number 3.
If you have ever dreamed of making it in Hollywood, or just love the drama, and mystique and fantasy that
goes into making movies, then this is a book you really should read.

In this brilliant sequel to Starstruck, Shukert's finely drawn characters evolve as they face ever complex, but always believable situations. There are no one-dimensional heroes or villains in this book -- like all of us, these people are a mix of qualities bringing their conflicts, ambitions, pettiness, and nobility to a elegantly detailed world of late 1930s Hollywood and a world also in conflict. In the process, the author has created not only a compelling story that keeps the reader absorbed far into the night, but has added to the growing state of the art of YA literature, appealing to all ages. The readers who lose themselves for a while in this place and time with these characters will be richly rewarded.

I read Love Me just after finishing another YA series. The contrast was noticeable. Love Me uses such more complex writing & character development. I found myself turning page-after-page excited to know what would happen next. Living in LA, I love the old-Hollywood setting and how well the book is researched. I cannot wait to find out what happens to the love stories, families and characters in the next book!

Two-second recap:
In Love Me, Rachel Shukert continues to entice and entertain readers with the glitzy, golden age Hollywood she first introduced readers to in Starstruck.

Memorable story lines and beautifully well-rounded characters make this a book that cannot be missed.

***

Intro:

I should probably preface this review by saying: I'm a pretty big fangirl of Rachel's writing. She won me over last year with her seriously amazing Starstruck, and I've been dying to read the sequel.

So when Random House kindly sent me an ARC, I was over the moon. And when I started reading, and realized that Shukert had kicked her (already seriously fantastic) writing skills, up an even higher notch, I was pretty darned overjoyed.

In Love Me, Shukert subtly shifts the focus of the book from teen starlet/ingenue Margo of Starstruck, to focus more on secondary characters, Gabby and Amanda. Both girls are suffering the price of continuing to climb the ladder of fame. Gabby is depending more and more on pills to get through the day, while Amanda begins to put herself in serious financial and emotional holes, to try and win back Harry's love.

While Margo's professional life is definitely glowing in comparison to both Amanda and Gabby, her personal life is equally as confusing. Her relationship with Dane, just isn't quite what it seems…

Shukert definitely doesn't hold back with her sophomore YA book. She beautifully illustrates the continuing backgrounds and challenges of the three young women that we met in Starstruck, rounding out their ongoing lives in the studio system with the type of writing and elaborate details that fully immerse readers into Shukert's fictional Hollywood.

After finishing Startstruck, I was anxious for the next one! This one did not disappoint. Our favorite characters are back, and as interesting as ever. This book takes you on a roller coaster and should not be missed. Now I just need the next book!

Format: Hardcover
Normally when I pick up books that include the words "Hollywood" and "drama" in them, I automatically dismiss them as fictional tabloids disguised as literature, like Gossip Girl or The A-List. But then I read this book and it astounded me. I am the pickiest of all readers, but this broke my book ratings scale. The plot was perfectly orchestrated- it tugged at every possible heartstring with each earnest sentence, made me love and sympathize with the characters, and then shocked me so deeply I had to go back and reread a few chapters to make sure I wasn't imagining things.

The characters were so easy to relate to because of their complicated problems caused by an inability to articulate simple feelings. With so many characters, it's often that their personas get lost within the story, but this wasn't the case for this book. Every identity was so individual and so strongly defined that I never had to check to see which character it was.

This book was beautifully crafted and most definitely the creme de la creme. I'll have to make a special spot on my shelf for this- maybe even add a mini crown to show this book's superiority. Or would Margo Sterling dismiss that as gaudy? I'm fairly sure even Gabby Preston would. Oh well. This book is good enough for me to risk the disfavor of two of Hollywood's biggest starlets.
