On Career Shadow Day when Maya sarcastically says, “I want to become a pop star,” and gets paired with the famous Jesse Scott, she should be thrilled. But the last thing Maya wants is to be reminded of how music broke her heart.

Jesse rose to fame at a young age and has no real friends. Maya and Jesse might be just what the other needs, but can they open up enough to become real friends—or even something more?

Hundred Oaks is back and it's not just about sports anymore. 

Maya has been in control of her life ever since, until she met Jesse Scott, the country superstar everyone's been talking about. The characters came from different worlds, different beliefs in life, but at the end of the day, music drew them together.

At a young age, their passion for fulfilling their dreams is heartwarming, that they are willing to do everything to reach their goals.

It is a story of a typical American family who encounters a lot of struggles in life, and a story of a vulnerable celebrity who just wants a chance with his family

My only wish with this book is that there should be more swoon worthy scenes between Maya and Jesse.

PS. Fuck Nate and Hannah

Growing up in Tennessee, Miranda Kenneally dreamed of becoming an Atlanta Brave, a country singer (cliché!), or a UN interpreter. Instead she writes, and works for the State Department in Washington, D.C., where George W. Bush once used her shoulder as an armrest. Miranda loves Twitter, Star Trek and her husband.
