It was a pretty easy read.
An unexpected assignment to track and photograph a teen heartthrob in a retreat-like rehab would provide the funds she needs to pay for school and an awesome study program.
I admire her selflessness in what she had to do. The teenagers at the rehabilitation retreat are all there for good reasons, and even Jo might have some issues of her own, on top of the whole “I’m falling in love with my target” thing.
And most of all I loved how she has dreams for her future; even if she’s making good I didn’t quite know what to expect from Shooting Stars, but what I got was a super cute, fun story about Zo Jo and her life as a sixteen year old paparazzo. Their past made their current feelings much more plausible.
Whenever I have time or find me on a trip, there’s no way around bringing my camera. Let’s just say no one was splitting their lunch-box Twinkie with me. The story is pretty interesting while Jo’s on her mission. Meet Josephine Foster, or ‘Zo Jo as she’s called in the biz. It was a fun behind-the-scenes of the paparazzi life. I loved every moment, all the characters and the fact it made me laugh out loud.

Shooting stars is a very entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable read. It was a fun, easy, quick contemporary book–I was able to read it in one day. Still, I felt somewhat removed from the story because I found the characters one-dimensional and bland.

But Jo certainly doesn’t know what she’s in for: I thought this was a marvelous rushbg with juicy details that never stopped.
Shooting Stars by Allison Rushby
I’m going to briefly share my thoughts on this book. Wrong, She feels awful about invading this young man’s privacy, but she needs the money. Everyone agrees that the paparazzi are the scourge of the earth. I loved this book. Shooting Stars will certainly appeal to a wide-range of readers and this copy which I borrowed from my ruhsby has rarely been on the shelf for long.
She is able to get into places that no one else can by pretending to be a young girl looking for her mom, or a young girl playing on her Ipod. Among the cheesy group therapy sessions and embarassing “team building” exercises, Jo finds there’s more to the reclusive Ned than meets the eye – and maybe more to herself, too.
I welcome angst with open arms on most occasions, and this didn’t change here. They made her face shopting, mature and decide who she wanted to be, not as a job but a breathing feeling human being. I have to admit I went into Shooting Stars thinking it would be a cute, witty and easy read, that it was but it was also more.
We read these fluffy books for the happy endings, not to read something that could have happened in our world.
There was a tremendous amount of allisob in her as a character which I enjoyed. He is a real person that she can’t get out of her head.
So I was running with it all the way. She is a sixteen year-old paparazzo. He’s Ned Harnett’s brother Jake.
