Am I the only one who thinks it's strange when teenagers call themselves "teens?"  It sounds kind of square and fake to me, but I didn't let that influence my opinion of this novel.

High schooler Jenny Greenly is just going about her life, being the mayonnaise on the sandwich they call high school, writing for her school paper and singing in the show choir, when her life is turned upside down by teen heartthrob Luke Striker, who has come to her school undercover to prepare for a movie role. And the school wants her to show him around!

Aw, this was such a cute novel!  I enjoyed every minute of it.  It's definitely not realistic, but it's what every girl in high school daydreams of - having good friends, affecting positive change, and not to mention a hot, male, teenage celebrity dropping into their high school.  On the other hand, it wasn't entirely predictable either.  You might be thinking that Jenny and Luke fall in love and have a romance, but that's actually not the case at all.  There's really not much else to say except Meg Cabot has done it again, er, she did it in 2004 when she wrote this book.  Which is probably why she mentions Lindsay Lohan as taking on an acting role, because we all know that doesn't happen so much anymore...

It's on my shelf if you want it!
