I like that mental health was a central topic of the book since there is a strong stigma about speaking of mental health today that shouldn’t exist. Which, um, never happens. A must-read for today’s celebrity-obsessed generation.

The best pint-sized paparazzo out there, Jo loves shooting the stars, and she certainly doesn’t mind doing whatever it takes to get that one perfect picture.

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! Her ethical struggles and life story were so interesting. Their srars made their current feelings much more plausible.

You have a great character who life is about to change through simply seeing things from a whole other view. Wrong, She feels awful about invading this young man’s privacy, but she needs the money. Writing from my own perspective, this is a very convincing father-child dynamic and was very well done.


For sure, this book did not disappoint me. That is until this job. But Zo Jo wants more. While having a hard time getting into one book to the point where I didn’t read for about 3 days. If you are in need of a good, cute, clean book, this is the book for you!

The Book Addicted Girl: Shooting Stars by Allison Rushby

It will blow morals and compass away, but will buy her her dream. It’s a quick read from a debut author, and I’m looking forward to what Rushby gives us next. The story is pretty interesting while Jo’s on her mission. There were so many little twists and then suddenly the biggest twists which definitely shocked me. I really adore how with each new chapter, Jo view is changed from what she thought she knew. She is able to get into places that no one else can by pretending to be a young girl looking for her mom, or a young girl playing on her Ipod.

She has to spy on the super hot singer Ned Hartnett.

He’s Ned Harnett’s brother Jake. The best pint-sized photographer of them all.

There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Josephine Foster or Zo Jo. Maybe not today or tomorrow, but soon. It turned out shootinb be more than I expected.


Shooting Stars : Allison Rushby :

It reminded me of an old fashioned gumshoe shootiny trying to crack a case wide open – “There wasn’t a code of conduct and some people liked to play rough. I really like her.

Shhooting says she needs money so many times throughout the book, but I don’t get it. I reccommend it – it’s brilliant! Getting past that, I etars the book, and many of the characters, including her roommate and Ned. Jo is such a fun character. The minor characters played a bigger part than what I thought. I am now very sure the streets of LA are teeming with tiny little wheeling and dealing paparazzi, god love ’em.

And all of them were just so real, so well-padded-out!

Shooting Stars

I actually did not see the big twist coming — at all. Trivia About Shooting Stars. Aside from the papparazi- and photography-stuff, she doesn’t have much of a personality. There were parts of this book that had me laughing out loud and parts where I was silently cheering for Jo and trying to tell her what to do!
