Famous in a Small Town – Published 2019
“For Sophie, small town life has never felt small. With her four best friends—loving, infuriating, and all she could ever ask for—she can weather any storm. But when Sophie’s beloved Acadia High School marching band is selected to march in the upcoming Rose Parade, it’s her job to get them all the way to LA. Her plan? To persuade country singer Megan Pleasant, their Midwestern town’s only claim to fame, to come back to Acadia to headline a fundraising festival.
The only problem is that Megan has very publicly sworn never to return.
What ensues is a journey filled with long-kept secrets, hidden heartbreaks, and revelations that could change everything—along with a possible fifth best friend: a new guy with a magnetic smile and secrets of his own.” – Goodreads
WHAT I LIKED
Back to back Emma Mills books and I just ordered her newest one to start this weekend. Her writing is so, so funny! I love “low stress reads”, stories of young love, and a sarcastic main character.
August. Equally as witty and totally adorable.
Sophie’s friend group is the funniest and cutest bunch of nerds ever! WWYSE is hilarious. Their group chat, alternate universe, humor and quirks are so lovable, and I want another book with them.
Did NOT see that coming with the texting that was happening throughout the book. Whoa.
Has anyone read this one? I laughed SO hard when a certain someone knocked on the door near the end. So, so, hard.
WHAT I DID NOT LIKE
While it gave purpose to the plot of the story, it seems pretty crazy that the responsibility of fundraising for such an hour and opportunity fell solely on the shoulders of the teenage participants.
