Overview

One kiss will change Marti's summer . . . forever.

Marti

Marti just wants a normal life. After dealing with her irresponsible rock-legend father and absentee mother, she only wants some peace . . . and fun. And that includes a summer at an exclusive arts camp.

Adam

For Adam, a normal life is not possible—not when he is the lead guitarist in a rock band with his brothers. So he's thrilled to finally have an opportunity to disguise himself and live like a normal teenager at summer camp.

And when Adam meets Marti, sparks fly. Between romantic bonfires and stolen kisses, they are inseparable.

Then Marti discovers who Adam truly is, and her world is turned upside down. Ever since her father nearly ruined her life, she vowed never to fall for a rocker. But when tragedy strikes, Marti is forced to look within. And she discovers that maybe falling in love with a rock star is not so crazy after all.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Bonita Herold
Sixteen-year-old Adam never gets any say in where he and his brothers will perform, when they'll interview, or even where they'll live. It's not surprising that he wants to escape life as a teen idol. He convinces his mom that attending a two-week photography camp is a good idea, and he talks his brother Peter into shaving off his luxurious locks so he can go incognito. Marti, who lives with her grandmother rather than her narcissistic rock-star father or drug-addled mother, attends the same camp. She's beautiful, he's handsome, and there's an immediate attraction. But sparks fly when Marti finds out that Adam isn't who he claims to be. Will they work out their differences? Even if they can, how will they ever see each other when they live on opposite sides of the country? One calamity after another strikes home in this action-packed romance. As book two in the "Jamieson Collection" series, it definitely holds its own. Teenage girls will devour both books, ready and willing for more. Reviewer: Bonita Herold
School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—These titles follow the lives of teen heartthrobs in a family rock band. In Rock and a Hard Place, Peter, the lead singer, falls for Libby, a girl he meets at a nature preserve. Their relationship evolves, but tragic circumstances put Libby in a group home and the couple must find a way to stay together. In Snapshot, Adam, the guitarist, meets Marti at photography camp. They must face the death of Marti's grandmother, a pregnancy scare, and a few near-death injuries. Both books are told in alternating points of view between the two main characters. There are many similarities in plot and female characterization between the two books: both girls are creative, artsy blondes who come from strikingly different backgrounds than the charmed rock stars. Both girls also deal with troubling home lives, complete with absent or unfit parents. The eldest Jamieson attempts to spoil each younger brother's relationship for the sake of the band, and each boy storms off, only to eventually get what he wants. Girls looking for romance and light realistic fiction will show the most interest in these titles.—Adrienne L. Strock, Chicago Public Library

Meet the Author

Angie Stanton never planned on writing books—she wanted to be a Rockette. However, growing up in rural America with her brothers' 4-H pigs as pets, she found that dance didn't quite work out. Instead, she became an avid daydreamer. After years of perfecting stories in her head, she began to write them down, and the rest is history. When not writing, she loves watching natural disaster movies, going to Broadway musicals, and dipping French fries in chocolate shakes. She lives in Madison, Wisconsin.

    No review can capture the enthralling and consuming emotions that you experience when reading this book, period.

    I'm 18 years old, one of the most picky readers by far, and its currently 1:31 in the morning.
    I started reading this book 3 hours ago, and 10 pages in, I already new 800 pages was not going to be enough. I legitimately could not put this book down until it was finished.
    Books like these are the reason I love reading.
    The connection you're able to make with these characters is unreal.
    I was brought to tears; not only by sadness but by happiness as well.
    I encourage anyone, whether you consider reading to be part of you or something you'd rather die than do, to read this book.

    I can't even begin to put into words the raw emotion and absolute brilliance contained in this book, and I do beg you to give this a read; therefore I will leave you with this:

    I don't write reviews, nor would I stay up till two in the morning to write one with such massive content, so let me ask you this:
    What is it that you're reading right now, who wrote it, and was that not a lengthy review?

    Amazing book! I loved the plot, all the twists and turns constantly kept my interest, glad about the happy end and I hope, that there will be a book about Garrett - he needs some feisty and infuriating girl to teach him a lesson for all his behaviour and make him a better person! Compliments to Angie Stanton for one more awesome book, and though Dream Chaser is my absolute favourite, Jamieson brothers' saga is definitely a must-read!!! Highly recommended!

    I read The first Jamieson book "Rock & a Hard Place&quo

    I read The first Jamieson book "Rock & a Hard Place" before I read this, & If you didn't like the first one, still read this one. I liked it way better than the other one.
    I read a lot and I almost never get into a book as much as I did this one.
    I did not stop reading until the book was finished.
    Literally could NOT put the book down. I sat there & read every last page of the book.
    I could connect with the characters, & I was laughing, crying, & frustrated along with the characters.
    I loved how the story was written, with the point of view from Adam (or AJ) & then also how it would switch to the view of Marti. This doesn't even capture how much I loved this book. Defiantly one of my favorites. Would tell anyone to read it!

    I've been a bookworm for many years already and I've turn into a very picky reader. Not many books can capture my interests but after reading this book, I fell in love with it. I have read this book over and over for a few times already and I can not seem to lose any amount of interest in it.

    Very good

    At the time I didn't know this was book two in a series and read this one first. Really it did good on its own but I still went back and read book one. In the end I really liked this one. Sweet story about a guy that wants to protect girl he is falling in love with and a girl trying to survive the life she's been given.

    Cute Book - 3.5 Stars Snapshot is the second book in Angie Stant

    Cute Book - 3.5 Stars
    Snapshot is the second book in Angie Stanton’s "The Jamieson Collection."  Rock and a Hard Place was a really cute YA read that I enjoyed.   This book also deals with the “rock star” theme, which is what drew me to the series to begin with.  In this story, the female protagonist, Marti Hunter, wants nothing to do with rock and roll and in fact hates it because of how it has affected her family.  The male main lead, Adam Jamieson, is a guitar player ready for a break and is looking forward to leaving his identity behind to become normal for a few weeks.  When these two meet, instant love results, mixed with drama, but the relationship and the romance is really cute.  Despite all the drama, the story ends well, as did Rock and a Hard Place, but Snapshot has more humor than the first book.  This is another fun and sweet YA read and something that teens would enjoy.

    Since I enjoyed the first book so much, I didn¿t hesitate in pic

    Since I enjoyed the first book so much, I didn’t hesitate in picking up the second book. It is clear that all the Jamieson Brothers have a clear voice. But for me, this story didn’t hit me as hard as I thought it would.

    Characters: My problem with this book was the characters. For me, there wasn’t much intimate moments where the reader can really get into the characters shoes. Instead both Adam and Marti began their relationship with half-truths, and never really getting to the bottom of things. They allowed others people or stuff to do the revealing for them. However, after reading the first book, you can tell that each brother has their own personality that makes them unique. They each have their moments that brings the brothers together yet sets them apart. Some are more mature than others. Nevertheless, they are always they for each other.

    Love: Because of the lies that were told, their love felt a bit rushed. One moment they are yelling at each other and the next their making goo-goo eyes. Rushing their love disappoints me. I love romance. And I hope that they would have precious moments to themselves that i can enjoy. It’s why I adore contemporaries so much.

    Drama: One good thing this book does contain is a great amount of drama within themselves and family. Both come from musical families with siblings, so they have a better understanding of each other. (I mean, they are so similar there was no reason to lie in the first place but whatever) still, these two definitely connect on levels with each other. The family aspect in this book I adore. There aren’t much YA books that use family as a strong hold. Bravo!

    Overall, I enjoyed this book. Snapshot takes the reader into an original but different Jamieson brother. Compelling with drama and great family dynamics, Snapshot refocuses on making mistakes and falling in love. With effective real issues that any reader could relate to, Snapshot is great.

    Adam Jamieson just wanted to experience just little bit of a nor

    Adam Jamieson just wanted to experience just little bit of a normal life. Being the lead guitarist for the “in” rock band makes that very difficult. Adam decides to cut off his legendary locks and disguise himself as a normal photography student at summer camp. He never expected he'd meet the girl of his dreams.

    Marti Hunter has always wanted a normal life but as a rock legends daughter with an addictive mother, her only rescue was her grandmother. Marti has series issues with the rock star life and has had nothing to do with her rock star father or her waste of a mother. Scrapping by Marti and her grandmother save enough money to send her to summer camp to study photography. 

    When Adam and Marti meet their relationship is explosive and that is before Marti discovers who Adam truly is... 

    I really enjoyed Snapshot. Angie Stanton writes realistic characters in heart melting situations, pulling you in and keeping you till the end. I was completely taken by the last third of this book, for the sake of no spoilers...I'm going to leave it at that. 

    Warning: this book contains hot rock stars, powerful young women, heart hurting moments, witches in 5” stilettos, skinny dipping and belly laughing situations. 

    I received Snapshot from HarperTeen in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication September 24, 2013.

    What I Liked: I think Adam is my favorite Jamieson bother. He's

    What I Liked: I think Adam is my favorite Jamieson bother. He's the perfect blend of snarky and sweet and I enjoyed the easy banter between he and Marti despite feeling like they jumped into a relationship way too fast. This companion to Rock and a Hard Place has more steam than it's predecessor and some of the choices Adam and Marti make had me sighing in frustration, but they are teenagers and teenagers are stupid sometimes. (I know, I used to be one.)

    Angie Stanton doesn't let Adam and Marti get away unscathed, however, she holds them accountable, and makes them face the consequences. There is one scene in particular where Adam's mother puts him in his place and I wished I could have slapped her a high five!

    It was nice to get a glimpse of what was going on with Peter and Libby especially after the way A Rock and a Hard Place ended.

    What Left Me Wanting More: I am not a fan of Garrett at all.

    Final Verdict: Makes a great companion to Rock and a Hard Place.
