Age Group: Young Adult
When teenage movie star Graham Larkin accidentally sends small town girl Ellie O'Neill an email about his pet pig, the two seventeen-year-olds strike up a witty and unforgettable correspondence, discussing everything under the sun, except for their names or backgrounds.
Then Graham finds out that Ellie's Maine hometown is the perfect location for his latest film, and he decides to take their relationship from online to in-person. But can a star as famous as Graham really start a relationship with an ordinary girl like Ellie? And why does Ellie want to avoid the media's spotlight at all costs?
My thoughts on it:
You know those books that just make you feel all giddy and happy, and kind of make your heart hurt a little bit - in a good way. This is one of them. The story is so cute and fluffy, and I found I got through it very quickly once I started reading it. It's all about a normal girl that starts e-mailing with an actor, and it is very cliche, but I still liked it, because it is what I needed when I read it. I needed something light and cute, and that is what you get with this book. It is chick lit., so it won't be the most amazing literature ever, but it will be cute and uplifting.
I've read a book by Jennifer E. Smith before (review here), and that was just as cute, so I now expect lots of great, cute reads from her, and will definitely come back for more.
My favorite parts of this novel were the parts in which you see Ellie and Graham's e-mails that they send each other, I could have read a whole book with just their e-mails because they were so cute and funny, and while the plot might not have been the greatest at some points, I did find that the e-mails (that is added before each chapter) really added to the story and made be enjoy the book more. I would recommend this if your looking for a light, fun and girly read.
