I must admit I loved Poppy's boy drama, especially because it isn't mine. Both of the guys in her life have their good and bad qualities. Cam is the ex and throughout the story readers can see that he still feels something for Poppy, whether friendship or something more...you'll just have to read and see. Then there is Ty the super talented and sexy rock star who loved her song. He is nice and seems to sincerely like Poppy, but there is always the question of if he really likes her or just her song. Add to that the troubles that come with being a celebrity boyfriend on tour and Ty and Poppy are in for a bumpy ride.
There is a host of other characters, but my favorite by far was Poo Bum the dog! I loved his stinky doggy self and the comedic relief he added to the story. The only characters that I wasn't too impressed with were Mads and Vanya. Mads seemed to do a complete 180 and Vanya had all but disappeared by the end of the book. . Last and most pickiest was some of the phrases seemed a little off...almost British. Perhaps it was just me. I definitely can't wait until the sequel comes out. I give this book a 4 STAR rating!
And I have to say, I like how it handled those more serious issues. Poppy wasn't perfect by any means, she made a lot of mistakes and some crazy bad choices but there were always consequences for those mistakes. Some good and some bad and I really liked that about this book. I liked that it felt real even if that meant getting a lot of teenage angst and all the chaos that comes with growing up along the way.
I did enjoy this read but I wish the characters would have been a little more fleshed out. Their personalities and even physical description were lacking. We only got small glimpses here and there about what they looked like and how they all knew each other. How long they had been friends. We get the idea that they had known each other forever but that was about it. We never even get to learn how old Poppy's brother and sister are in the story.
Even with the lack of description, this was still a good read and one that I am glad I read. I didn't foresee all the events that took place and I definitely didn't predict who Poppy would end up with in the end, which is always a good thing.
I would definitely check out the sequel when it is released.I give this one 3 to 3.5 Stars!
Though I liked the story, I couldn't actually make myself believe it was something realistic. YouTube sensation meets random guy on the bus who just so happens to be in a band and next thing you know they are covering her latest song and get signed by a major record label. Ty, the random guy and future boyfriend, goes from being in school to all the sudden being done and ready to travel all over the country.
The standards of a regular girl dating a rockstar happen in this story. He's being flooded by girls nonstop and tabloids are plastering photos of him and other girls all over making Poppy insecure and worried that Ty's cheating on her.
My main complaint as an adult reading young adult fiction are annoying teenage characters with an author who doesn't really know how teenagers are. This book had it's fair share of annoying characters, but luckily they were annoying characters who still acted like teenagers do today and were probably supposed to be a bit annoying.
