At times, the characters are frustrating – Aileen feels simultaneously perfect, skittish, and indecisive, while Theo, one of the boy band members who plays a special role in the story, is a little hard to figure out with his mood swings – but you feel like you want to keep reading to see how things will be reconciled despite these frustrations. The degree to which all of the boys fawn over Aileen (who goes by Tinkerbell more and more as the book goes on) grates at times, but more so because of her reaction to the fawning rather than the fact that they adore her (especially because she seems to be in continuous and clueless disagreement with them over everything, including how attractive she is despite the fact that she sounds like a perfectly good looking girl by all descriptions). Despite how aggravating this can be, though, we understand that she reacts this way because of her upbringing and the fact that she seems to have been starved from romantic affection, which has lent her a false view of herself and incapable of accepting herself and “marketing” herself for how great she actually is. What redeems this is how genuinely the boys seem to care for her and how much she likes them. There’s an ease and natural flow to their friendships that we all crave, and it’s sweet to see it play out and to watch how they take care of each other even when tensions arise.
Overall, it’s a fun, quick read even when it gets frustrating, and you find yourself enjoying watching the shy, cautious girl who always does everything right start to become more assertive and aggressive and discovering her trying to take ownership over her life and her choices in her own way.
The boys who make up the band UK Crush have distinct personalities, and are likable as well.
The story takes place in Japan, which is wonderfully described.
Tani Hanes has a gift for writing. I can hardly believe this is her first novel!
