Jo is just your average teenager well if average is falling asleep at your desk during school as you were out snapping photos of the next big thing until the early hours the night before.
Jo gets sent to a retreat to work undercover taking pictures of huge teen star Ned Hartnett, once at the retreat what started out as just a job and a quick way into photography school actually turns into Jo finding herself and maybe just maybe she isn't cracked up to be a paparazzo.
I originally assumed that Shooting Stars would be a easy summery read, what I actually found was a story with a lot more depth and some serious themes running throughout.
I really warmed to Jo early on, she was likeable but also had a fun and unique voice. But she hasn't had an easy time, which isn't fully revealed until later in the story. I really liked the way she interacted with the supporting characters, especially Seth and Katrina who deserve a novel of their own.
Shooting Stars was a good coming of age tale and proves that you don't always have to follow in your parents footsteps and do what they want for them to be proud of you, definitely a good life lesson can be found here.
Shooting Stars is published by Walker and is out now.
A big thank you to the author who sent me a copy to review
