    I really liked this Definitely the kind of Hollywood book I've been looking for And a 30's one FUNI liked that it didn't shy away from the negative aspects of Hollywood especially the ones in the 30's though I kind of wanted a little idealism too Which might've been solved if there were a conclusive ending I can't tell if the loose ends are left for a potential seuel or if I'm just demanding too much I mean I don't need everything

Two second recap As the first book in the start of a three part series Starstruck is everything a historical fiction YA reader could want in a book It s well written romantic and brings the glamour of the golden age of Hollywood to life Full reviewI grew up on a steady diet of films from the golden age of Hollywood eg Audrey Hepburn s My Fairy Lady Jimmy Stewart s Mr Smith Goes to Washington and BergmanBogart s Casablanca These films taught me about romance took me to far off places and helped me dream big So when I learned that Rachel Shukert had written a YA book about the time period I knew that this was something I had to read immediately Because really awesome starlets the glamour of the old studios YA winwin am I right I m thrilled to say that after reading Starstruck it s everything that a fan of the era and a fan of YA could want in a book What worked The characterizations As the primary protagonist Margaret later to be reborn as Margo is no wilting flower Yes she s lived a very sheltered life in Pasadena something Shukert illustrates very well with small details eg Margaret s housekeeper Margaret s nervousness when faced with the opposite sex but she s also no wilting flower At one point Margaret has to make an incredibly difficult decision involving her future hopes and aspirations She makes that decision without batting an eye It s a testament to Shukert s writing and characterization that the reader is instantly able to understand why Margaret s made the difficult choice The multi perspectives Shukert makes the extremely clever decision of telling the book through three young women at very different points of their Hollywood career By diving the story between Margaret Margo Gabby and Amanda Shukert keeps the narrative moving and avoids a common pitfall for seeking stardom stories like these exclusively focusing on the newcomeryoung ingenue which almost always results in the audience actively hating her Smash on NBC I m looking at you Also considering Shukert writes Smash recaps for Daily Vulture I m guessing this is something she actively kept in mind when writing The plotting Shukert does an excellent job in developing Margaretevolution from innocent schoolgirl to the new Hollywood It Girl in a logical believable way She provides enough detail and explanation for why Margaret is able to ascend so uickly and at no point does it feel unbelievable or larger than life As part of the plotting the mystery There s an ongoing mystery in the book and it keeps the reader guessing until the very end The eventual reveal is very heartbreaking and completely not what I expected On that note Shukert also incorporates some of the downsides of living a life in the Hollywood spotlight in a thoughtful respectful manner In the hands of another writer some of the plotlines incorporated could have easily veered into melodrama Smash still looking at you In Shukert s hands these plotlines make you reflec and honestly leave you actually sort of saddened at the price that some people must and are willing to pay for fameWhat didn t workThings to considerHonestly nothing Even my usual critiue that a multiple perspective storyline can often take away from overall character development eg Breathe doesn t apply here The only thing I d want Shukert to explore is Olive Moore s interest in Margaret It seemed a little out of left field but I m guessing there s going to be to come in the seuelsFinal verdict Starstruck lives up to its title it s a glamorous sparkling addition to historical YA books I would recommend the book for slightly older YA readers simply due to the content in the book However if you re dealing with a very mature young adult than by all means go for it
