Waiting On: Catch a Falling Star by Kim Culbertson

Catch a Falling Star by Kim Culbertson
To be published: April 29, 2014 by Scholastic Press
Catch a Falling Star
A deliciously charming novel about finding true love . . . and yourself.

Nothing ever happens in Little, CA. Which is just the way Carter Moon likes it. But when Hollywood arrives to film a movie starring former child star turned PR mess Adam Jakes, everything changes. Carter's town becomes a giant glittery set and, much to her annoyance, everyone is starry-eyed for Adam. Carter seems to be the only girl not falling all over herself to get a glimpse of him. Which apparently makes her perfect for the secret offer of a lifetime: playing the role of Adam's girlfriend while he's in town, to improve his public image, in exchange for a hefty paycheck.

Her family really needs the money and so Carters agrees. But it turns out Adam isn't at all who she thought he was. As they grow closer, their relationship walks a blurry line between what's real and what's fake, and Carter must open her eyes to the scariest of unexplored worlds - her future. Can Carter figure out what she wants out of life AND get the guy? Or are there no Hollywood endings in real life? [goodreads]

When YA novels incorporate real life drama with drama of Hollywood, I think it has potential to create such a cute, fun read.  This one sounds like it would make a great beach read, or perhaps something to devour while you're in an airport, waiting for that vacation of yours to start.  Definitely added to my TBR list and will be checking out the closer it gets to summer.

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


  1. oooo I have been waiting for this too! I actually just put a hold on this at my library for when it comes out!

  2. This one does sound cute, I always like a light and fluffy read. Great pick! ~Pam

  3. I can only handle books that blur the star line with normalcy here and there. I usually like the ones that I read like this, but I can't read too many of them in a row. I guess because it feels so far fetched, but this does sound like a cute read. Nice choice!
