Kat says: This is an enjoyable coming of age YA story. How many of us have fantasized about becoming BFFs with a celebrity we admire? For Cherry it actually happens, but feelings get in the away. A sweet story.
Cherry Forbes’s last summer at home starts off like a daydream. The screenwriter for her favorite cult show is house-sitting for Cherry’s best yardwork customer, and she’s brought her girlfriend — Helen, the actress Cherry’s been crushing on all winter.
Helen wants someone to show her around town while Tricia works, and she’d rather let Cherry drive the Corvette than drive in a strange place. Better yet, when too many people start to recognize her, Helen needs Cherry to run interference.
With so much going so right, if Cherry starts to think maybe the biggest daydream of all might come true — Helen and her together, forever … well, who can blame her?
But the initial pain of having her advances rejected turns to deep writhing embarrassment as Cherry realizes she’s managed to protect Helen from all the raving fans but one.
