Sixteen-year-old school girl Zali Luna has just been cast in her first Very Big Movie. But while going to Sydney and working with her gorgeous, world famous co-star Oliver Lamond is a dream come, Zali also has a very big problem. She's pretty sure that she's the only sixteen-year-old girl in the world who hasn't been kissed, and soon she's going to have to kiss Oliver on screen. Zali's determined to get some kissing practice in before the big day, but there's her malicious rival, child star Emma Small to contend with, and then there's Harry, who may have feelings for Zali that go deeper than just friendship.
Have you dear ladies ever had a moment in your life where you wish for that fairytale, prince charming-happily-ever-after-inducing kiss? Had you even daydreamed that it's going to be with (insert actors/musicians/band you've had crushes on and you are currently planning your wedding right this instant).
Well, get out of the daydream and start planning because the first ever 16 year old who gets a chance to get her first kiss given to her by her all-time crush, the famous actor, Oliver Lamond and that is none other than Zali Luna.
What I like about Zali is that she is very relatable. Mind, I am no longer a sixteen-year old girl (yeah, I admit it) but reading Zali Luna's story brings back those tingly vibes we get when we see or we are with our crushes. And, the ways it's certified that you've got a crush on someone:
☑ You just can't can't can't get rid of the silly butterflies you've eaten whenever your around them. Where do the butterflies come from anyway and what business do they have in your tummy right?
☑ You just smile, laugh, try to think of the best lines and answers when you're talking to them to the point that you forget what you're actually talking about.
☑ You become really REALLY clumsy for no reason. I guess the wires are trippin' on you that day.
☑ You try to get someone else's attention so that your crush would notice you. (and sometimes that's your best guy buddy--for her, it's Harry)
☑ When in fact, it's not actually the movie star that makes the butterflies go loco, it's the guy (AKA THE RIGHT GUY FOR YOU) you try to practice on for the FIRST KISS OF YOUR LIFETIME.
☑ Oh, and also be prepared for that snarky rival of yours who's out to get you (but is she really?)
Zali Luna is a very lighthearted YA novel. If you're into daydreaming about that hot actor, the boy band and that awesome musician you've always got dibs on with your friends, this is an awesome book for you. Zali Luna makes the ordinary extraordinary as Zali gets the ultimate adventure (and fairy-tale worthy first kiss) of her lifetime.
