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."

Like the first book, there are so many twists and turns and I can't wait now for the next book.

In this brilliant sequel to Starstruck, Shukert's finely drawn characters evolve as they face ever complex, but always believable situations.

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

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.

Format: Hardcover
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!

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!

When I finished this book, I was torn as to wether or not it was better than/ worse than/ or the same as Starstruck. In the end I decided it is in some ways superior, in some ways not quite as good, but overall still a 5 (or maybe more like 4.5).

The first book was more focussed on Margo. This, I think was meant be to Amanda heavy, but it was a bit more balanced than Starstruck in the time it gave the different girls.

It is basically Mean Girls or Gossip Girl set in the golden age of Hollywood. The meanness is perhaps more subtle but selfishness is always happening here.

Relationship dramas amid family dramas against studio drama. It’s all drama all of the time for these girls. Even when they are at the top of their game they find some reason to envy their friends (and enemies).

Several important events happen in this book - maybe too much as some of it ends up a little rushed. Still this isn one of the rare times when I don’t mind a series. A series that leaves you with cliffhangers. These types of books have been my #1 book pet peeve for awhile. Here, it feels right. Like some ongoing soap opera with so many plots that you need more than one book to get it all in. If it goes on too long, it does run the risk of feeling stale (there's only so many twists you can give to Hollywood Starlets in the 30s), but for now I’m all in.
