Publisher's Summary

A deliciously charming novel about finding true love...and yourself. Nothing ever happens in Little, California. Which is just the way 17-year-old Carter Moon likes it. But when Hollywood arrives to film a movie starring former child star-turned public relations mess Adam Jakes, everything changes. Utterly annoyed, Carter feels like the only girl not buying what Hollywood's selling. Then Carter gets an offer she can't refuse: Play the part of Adam's girlfriend while he's in Little, to improve his public image, and take home a hefty paycheck, which her family desperately needs. So instead of a summer hanging out with friends and working, Carter begrudgingly poses for the tabloids but soon finds that Adam isn't who she thought. Worse yet, she might actually be falling for him. As they grow closer, their relationship walks a blurry line between what's real and what's fake, and Carter must open her eyes to the scariest of unexplored worlds - her future. Can Carter figure out what she wants out of life and get the boy? Or are there no Hollywood endings in real life?

Long winded, teenagers acting like 30 year olds

I found myself losing concentration quite often. Very long winded. Going in to deep consents about Everything. Ending was lacking when the whole rest of the book was too in-depth . This is not a fun easy read.

So Enjoyable! Read it or listen to it or both.

What made the experience of listening to Catch a Falling Star the most enjoyable?

Beautifully captures the quiet moments and the truths we tell to strangers, or in unguarded moments. This story is insightful, heartwarming, and smile generating. It is a wonderful story to read or listen to or both. It may be classified as YA, but it can be enjoyed by all ages. Listen to it, share it, and talk about it!

What other book might you compare Catch a Falling Star to and why?

Kim's other books Songs for a Teenage Nomad and Instructions for a Broken Heart are both wonderful reads that have not been made available in audio format. So I was so excited when Catch a Falling Star became available.

Have you listened to any of Erin Spencer and Andrew Eiden ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but they did a wonderful job reading this story.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
