Lacey Barnes has dreamt of being in a movie for as long as she can remember. However, while her dream did include working alongside the hottest actor in Hollywood, it didn't involve having to finish up her senior year of high school at the same time she was getting her big break. Although that is nothing compared to Donavan, the straight-laced student her father hires to tutor her, who is a full-on nightmare.
Lacey Barnes always dreamed of being an actress, and get an opportunity to star in a movie during her senior year. But life in the spotlight isn't as picture perfect as Lacey imagined. She has trouble bonding with her costars, her father hires Donavan Lake to tutor her, somewhere along the way she loses her acting mojo.

I think the story was written quite maturely and I loved the blossoming romance between Lacey and Donavan.

I really like Kasie West books. They are great to recommend to high school students that like a clean, light, romantic vibe with a little drama and mystery. When seventeen-year-old Lacey Barnes get to act in a zombie movie with famous actor, Grant, something just does not click. As Lacey tries to get the "click" to work on the set, she is also subjected to sabotage, dealing with an interfering father, and a nerdy, cute tutor. Light, fun, quick read that leaves that gives one the "awww" feeling.

A cute romance that happens mostly on a movie set and a good choice if you're in the mood for a light read.
