Overview

Romance takes center stage in this rockin' love story from Susane Colasanti. Great for fans of Jenny Han and Sarah Dessen!
 
Sterling is crazy in love with Ethan. Not only is he the sweetest boy she’s ever met, but he's an incredibly talented guitarist, singer, and songwriter. And since forever, he’s believed he has what it takes to be a star.
 
When Ethan becomes an overnight sensation, he’s thrown head-first into the glam world of celebrity—and so is Sterling. Before she knows it, she’s attending red-carpet premieres, getting free designer clothes, and flying around the country to attend Ethan’s monumental sold-out concerts.
 
It’s a dream come true…but whose dream is Sterling living? And what do you do when “forever” comes to an end?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
02/24/2014
Colasanti (All I Need) returns with a superficial romance narrated by high school senior Sterling, who is head over heels for her musician boyfriend of one month: “Ethan Cross is the most gorgeous boy I’ve ever seen,” she explains. “And he picked me.” Sterling knows Ethan is a talented songwriter and performer, but she isn’t prepared for the changes in both their lives after Ethan’s band’s first single becomes a hit. Suddenly, Sterling is a celebrity girlfriend, wearing designer clothes, attending gala events, and staying at glam hotels. Soon, the downside of being on the edge of the limelight overshadows the fun and excitement: Sterling is plagued by false rumors and criticism from jealous fans, and Ethan becomes obsessed with gaining even more fame. Beyond the predictability of the plot, these teens’ romance feels like a nonstarter even before stardom becomes an issue. Naïve and judgmental, Sterling isn’t the sort of character who generates much goodwill (and self-involved Ethan isn’t any better). Both, unfortunately, come across more as the idea of lovestruck teenagers than actual people. Ages 12–up. (May)

04/01/2014
Gr 7–10—When Sterling's boyfriend Ethan makes it big with the release of his first album, he becomes an overnight teen heartthrob with a viral online presence. Sterling, too, is pulled into the whirlwind as she follows him on tour and is featured in top celebrity magazines. She is even gifted with designer swag to dress the part. While the limelight is initially appealing, the teen eventually realizes the cost of living off her boyfriend's fame and in his shadow—she is ignoring her own interests and aspirations. Although the writing is not overly sophisticated or original (Ethan is regularly described as "hot" and the protagonist's reaction to him as "melting"), new romance readers will find a safe initiation here. There is a subtle mention of a shared bed, but even the kisses quietly fade to black. For fans of the author, Elizabeth Eulberg, and Sarah Dessen.—Leah Krippner, Harlem High School, Machesney Park, IL

    1) I am so glad that you are here...It helps me realize how beautiful my world is. 2) Don't frown because you never know who might be falling in love with your smile. 3) Do you love me because I'm beautiful, or am I beautiful because you love me? 4) So dear I love him that with him, all deaths I could endure. Without him, live no life. 5) Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage. 6) You come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly. 7) If I could reach up and hold a star for every time you made me smile, I would have the whole night sky in the palm of my hand. 8) Love is friendship set on fire. 9) I miss you even more than I could have believed; and I was prepared to miss you a good deal. 10) In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything, and two minus one equals nothing. 11) Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own. 12) You're nothing short of my everything. &hearts Hope you enjoyed these.
