Shooting Stars by Allison Rushby

Synopsis (from Goodreads)

Pages: 272
Publisher: Walker
Published on: 28th of Febuary 2012

Meet Josephine Foster, or Zo Jo as she’s called in the biz. The best pint-sized photographer of them all, Jo doesn’t mind doing what it takes to get that perfect shot, until she’s sent on an undercover assignment to shoot Ned Hartnett—teen superstar and the only celebrity who’s ever been kind to her—at an exclusive rehabilitation retreat in Boston. The money will be enough to pay for Jo’s dream: real photography classes, and maybe even quitting her paparazzi gig for good. Everyone wants to know what Ned’s in for. But Jo certainly doesn’t know what she’s in for: falling in love with Ned was never supposed to be part of her assignment.

What I Have to Say

This book was amazing. I honesly didn't expect it to be as good as it was, which is why I should never let first impressions of a book sway my judgement xD

I've never really thought about the paparrazi as anything more than a bunch of people who bother celebrities and take their pictures. This really gives an insight into their point of view. Why they do it, how they think about it. I'm not saying that it's good, but there are some really good arguments made in this book. 

Jo was a really cool character too. I feel in love with her really quickly! She just had such an interesting voice and it was easy to  sympathise with her. She was also really funny! My sort of humour I think.^^

The best thing I think about it though was  how real it felt, which is especially impressive considering the plot. 

I really recommened this book!
