Publisher's Summary

He needed a place to hide. She needed a friend. They never expected to fall in love. After a car accident - an event he considers a prank gone bad - jaded pop star Hunter Kennedy is forced to hide out with his aunt in small-town Colorado. He's supposed to rest, heal his scars, and attend high school in disguise until the press dies down. But he only wants to get back to work.
Worse, the girl who's been assigned to make him over into a geek is a major geek herself. Vere Roth is a chattering pixie - a blushing tornado and a complete social disaster. He's never met a girl who's never been kissed, believes in romance, and thinks Hunter's a "nice" guy.
Funny thing is...Hunter is nice around Vere because she's his first real friend. He also can't seem to stop sharing his secrets or keep her out of his heart. Knowing he'd never deserve a girl as sweet as Vere, he resigns himself to the friend zone and helps his new bestie with her own makeover.
She tortures him daily for guy advice on how to snag her lifelong crush: a guy Hunter thinks is totally wrong for Vere. And sadly he's taken note of Vere's stunning transformation.
When Vere asks her best friend for some kissing advice, Hunter can't resist.
And that's when things get out of control.
Anne Eliot is an Amazon top 100 best-selling young adult author. She writes sweet high school romances featuring book boyfriends you can't forget and, of course, those amazing first kisses.

even as teenagers

What made the experience of listening to Unmaking Hunter Kennedy the most enjoyable?

I liked how the narrators were able to still be convincing even when reading as teenagers.

They tone of voice was spot on throughout the book which can be difficult considering teens are so over the top

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene was when Dustin ((Hunter)) would talk with a lisp. And the conversations him and Ver use to have.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The moment where Hunter truly reveales how he was feeling the night that ultimately changed his life which lead to discussions on depression and suicide

Any additional comments?

Amazing book loved it from start to dlfinsih. Very realistic with a bit of a stretch at times. Loved that issues that teens truly face where touched upon.
