In Over Her Head: Lights, Camera, Anxiety (The Cecily Taylor Series Book 2) Kindle Edition
Cecily feels like she has it all: great best friends, the beginnings of a career as a model/actress, and she's dating her favorite singer, Andrew Holiday. Then Cecily's best friend Lila begins to ditch her every time Lila's boyfriend calls. Cecily feels lost, but she and Andrew begin connecting more and she's never been in a relationship where she felt so understood. Andrew even begins to confide in her about his anxiety. Soon Cecily experiences her own anxiety on a magazine photo shoot, but she manages to impress the magazine staff. Just when it seems like all her dreams are coming true, everything comes crashing down when a photo of Andrew with another girl appears online. He swears nothing happened, but Cecily is crushed. She feels like she's lost two of the people closest to her.
Was her perfect relationship real or was she in over her head?

Cecily and Andrew are now an official couple and I love these two characters giving me swoon. Cecily gets an awesome opportunity in New York with Andrew's help, and she blows the job out of the water. Cecily is obviously very talented. However, just when you think life is going great, some bumps in the road challenges this budding relationship. I love that Hager writes characters with depth and emotional growth that is relatable and realistic. The cast of characters are also a joy to read about as well, even those characters that I was not really fond of.
Overall, I found that the series was a great read that I thoroughly enjoyed for the characters, dialogue and all the angst you come to expect in a YA read. I enjoyed the story lines, the drama, the relationships and growth of the characters and how they handled the issues that come their way. Glad I had the opportunity to read this series. Highly entertaining and I loved it.
In this installment, Cecily is officially—albeit secretly, at his request—in a steady relationship with her famous musician crush, and now boyfriend, Andrew Holiday. The couple texts and video chats almost daily while Andrew is on the road, and they confide in each other when it comes to their problems. Namely, Cecily is having issues at school with her best friend Lila and Andrew has difficulty with anxiety. Andrew pulls some strings and gets Cecily a job for a photo spread in New York and while it initially comes off as somewhat nepotic, Cecily blows everyone away with her very natural, very real talent. Unfortunately, Cecily's moment of feeling on top of the world is fleeting. A photo of Andrew with another girl sitting a little too comfortably on his lap emerges, and Cecily makes some impulsive and naive choices that further threaten her happiness.
In Over Her Head has all of the teenage emotion, angst, and drama required in its genre, with Krysten Lindsay Hager writing in a fame wildcard with the relationship between Cecily and Andrew, and Cecily's career objectives. Cecily is pretty level-headed for her age when put up against characters like Lila (who I just really did not like from the word go), Harlow (the rich, popular girl), and Tanna (who changes boyfriends like they're underwear). Cecily's friend Allie is the straight-shooting, book-smart, old-soul that talks sense into Cecily when nobody else is able to get through. Bonus points to Hager for sidestepping the usual 'famous girls are all horrible' tropes by making Scarlett and Isla both very friendly...that was refreshing...and let's face it: Cecily needed a bit of kindness from unexpected places in both of those instances. There are moments of Hager injecting tongue-in-cheek humor (“This was my life and not some YA book heroine’s.”) and I think teenagers and younger readers on the YA genre spectrum will enjoy following Cecily through her highs and lows.
Cecily is now famous with her acting and modelling but getting used to the celebrity life especially being so young in the middle of this crazy world but she still has one constant with Andrew. He is the only person who seems to get her, although one night may change that forever.
Andrew is living the dream, a great career and a beautiful girlfriend but one night may ruin his life as he knows it when he is photographed with a woman on his shoulder but even when he tries to deny it and is at a loss how this has happen, his whole world seems to be spiralling out of control.
This is a great addition to the series and brings the life of Cecily back into the forefront, the chemistry between the two main characters is off the pages and with the surprises along the way this story will have you gripped. I loved the young angst and that Cecily although has a lot of pressure on her at a young age is dealing with growing up in the media with growing up full stop.
The story was well written and the second characters added to the story brilliantly and I want a Grandma like Cecily as she was probably my favourite character in the series. I can't wait to read more books by this author.
