Ugh I can t believe I actually read this book It was pretty bad but I had to give it a second star because I will admit that I couldn t stop reading the first half Then I had to force myself to finish the second half Death of a Dreamer once the storyline got completely ridiculous First I couldn t stand the main character Gwendolyn aka Dough is fullf self loathing which while perhaps not completely unrealistic for some teens got really The Beloved Scoundrel old really fast I felt like the constant self deprecation and ridiculous rantsn how fat and disgusting she is went Downcanyon: A Naturalist Explores the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon on way too long and her disbelief that anyone could care about her becausef her appearance was exhausting Anyway the main reason Dough is in such a tizzy about her weight is because her boyfriend whom she has not seen for years Wish is moving back to NJ after spending several years in CA When Wish arrives back to their coastal community everyone seems to be under his spell and Dough can t figure Il Barça out why such a handsome and charismatic guy would want anything to do with herI thought I was going to like this book because I thought WIsh was going to like Dough regardlessf her appearance and as I was reading the first half before Wish arrived home I was eager to see how he would accept Italian Phrase Book or reject Dough But here s where it got crazy the story takes a crazy supernatural turn which seemed totally unnecessary and flatut ridiculous to me Plus it just confirmed that Dough was correct that nobody gorgeous and charming like Wish would actually really love her for her I don t want to explain the supernatural side to this story because if despite my warning that this book is a waste Lovesong (Green Creek of time someone still wants to read it you should get to be shocked by the ridiculousnessf it all for yourself I picked up Starstruck because I loved Cyn s previous books Fairy Tale and Sleepless and I was not disappointed The story is light but carries depth and the supernatural element enjoyable and not The Countess overplayed The humor was impeccable and the timing spotn Dough was such an engaging character and her reactions to different situations were completely realistic Simply put I loved it Wish did get Gully Dirt: On Exposing the Klan, Raising a Hog, and Escaping the South on my nerves a few times but what guy doesn t Again an engaging and realistic character Oh and SPOILER ALERT if a seuel is released I a totally rooting for Christian as Dough s new boyfriend Definitely my favorite character in the novel All in all a fun and uick read worth the time spent Starstruck by Cyn Balog left me cold I was not at all impressed with this mediocre storySynopsis Gwendolyn Dough X doesn t think she has much going for her she carries a few extra pounds her family struggles with their small bakery in a town fullf millionaires and the Kelttiläistarinoita other kids at her New

the fact that Gwen known by family as Dough is absolutely miserable throughout the course Exhalation of the story She hates her body She constantly compares herself to her younger thinner sister Evie She consoles herself with endless donuts from her mom s bakery She is ignored at school and the thing is she just takes it Seriously she nevernce stands up for herself never Galileo once tries to make

miserable Wish is hot good looking and all the girls at school are already drooling Oglinda salvata over his Facebook profile Gwenn the ther hand is heavy hides herself in Hanes sweatshirts and likes donuts Seriously there is a difference between being self deprecating about ne s weight and being totally miserable and depressed Gwen crosses that line for me She could not think Nemico ofne thing she really liked about herself and she had no clue why Wish would want to stay with her after seeing her again Throughout the course f the book she kept expecting him to break up with her initiating that conversation a few times herself She had literally no self esteem that I could see Believe

Minati would lighten the story for me but I just found him as boring as Gwen was He was mediocre to say the least Not to mention the whole Luminati thing didn t really start until half way through ur book The first half was just Gwen complaining about her weight comparing herself to almost every thin girl in school stuffing her face with all the donuts that crossed her path and wondering why Wish doesn t break up with her from the first moment he lays his eyes n her I found the whole thing stressfulSadly I just couldn t get into this ne I tried to like Gwen and there were moments when she made
