One Direction that I would fling it out of the window and vow never to read a book again. The second surprise won’t get me shot for spoiler-spilling I hope – stara story takes an unexpected serious turn and starts to explore some deeper issues that you wouldn’t necessarily expect from a book with such a light-hearted tone.
It’s just there’s really very little to it. He is a real person that she can’t get out of her head.

I liked how she doesn’t take herself too seriously, and how she’s not afraid to use some dirty tricks to get the best shots. I wish I could tell you this book is terrible, but it’s not. Lack of real conflict. And a magnificent main character. I have so much Asian pride over Jo being half-Japanese because Jo’s strong, funny, and clever. Well, I’m pleased to say that, thanks to a rather wonderful main character, I got over that particular hurdle pretty quickly.
Jo is a very engaging character. You will not be disappointed.
Which, um, never happens. Only one celebrity has ever been nice to her and that was Ned Hatchett. In this one, we have Josephine, a.
To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. It’s all sorts of cute and adorable and entertaining but still successfully tells an emotional story. Being short and small, she could sneak into places the older paps couldn’t get into. I truly enjoyed reading this one. Looking at everyone else’s flaws and embarrassing moments through her faux ipod camera, the tables are ironically turned on her when she accepts the job.
She doesn’t mind doing what it takes to get that perfect shot, until she’s sent on a major undercover assignment to shoot Ned Hartnett-teen superstar and the only celebrity who’s ever been kind to her-at an exclusive rehabilitation sllison. He’s Ned Harnett’s brother Jake. The best pint-sized photographer of them all.
Although, saying that, the ending does provide the reader and the character with a satisfactory sort of closure. The switch that caught me by surprised was a very good idea! Getting past that, I liked the book, and many of the characters, including her roommate and Ned. Have you ever imagined what the life of a paparazzo is really like – well you can find out all their juicy secrets here. I was sent an arc of this, but didn’t pay much attention to it And since nothing ever goes beyond some kissing, it is very appropriate for younger teens as well!
I have to say that I didn’t guess it at all but it made the second part of the story even more interesting as Jo has to try and find a solution for the mess she’s got herself into! From the first word to the last word I was so interested and it always made me want to read more. There’s something we find out about her towards the end of the book that cuold have made her a more interesting character, but that issue is never really explored.

That’s exactly how Zo Jo Josephine’s business name feels. Mr Hartnett would be played by Zac Efron. And all of them were just so real, so well-padded-out!
While having a hard time getting into one book to the point where I didn’t read for about 3 days. There are some crazy plot twists I never would have seen coming, and there’s lots of layers to the story. No trivia or quizzes yet.
