I've got another book review for you all today! I'm really enjoying reading at the moment and there just seems to be so many books that I want to read! I really enjoyed reading 'Anna and the Shy Guy' and I'm really interested in reading more by Suze Winegardner.
'Anna and the Shy Guy' is based around fictional band 'Seconds to Juliet' who are a group of teen pop sensations. However, one of them isn't who they say they are; Will Fray is actually Matt Fray, Will's twin brother, who is reluctantly filling in for Will while he's in rehab. Trouble is, hardly anyone knows this and it has to stay top secret... a hard feat when there's a sweet reporter called Anna hanging around who's desperate for a big scoop to get her off of the streets. What will Anna pick? A pay check that will make her eyes water or a boy who's slowly winning her over?
'Anna and the Shy Guy' covers the reality of homelessness and gives everyone a reminder that not everyone is blessed with a roof over their heads. It's such an empowering message because it shows that regardless of your situation, you can still get your big break and still make your dreams come true, as long as you work hard enough.
Of course, it's not all doom and gloom and there are some really cute, heart clenching moments that just make you want to squeal with happiness! Not only is Matt and Anna's relationship really sweet but also the friendship between Natasha and Anna is so strong right from the beginning. It shows that it really doesn't matter how long you've been friends or how long you've known each other, it's just nice to know that someone's got your back.
The only thing I thought it lacked was stories of the other boys in the band but I guess that what the other books in the series are for! I loved this book and thought it was a great teen romance novel and I would definitely recommend it to the boy band obsessed, romance lovers out there!
See you soon,
