Book Summary:

Standing up for what you believe in is hard for any teenager in the battleground known as high school. It’s even harder in the world of Hollywood, which is where sixteen-year-old June Laurie dreams of being. Thanks to the constant training from her agent/grandmother and the support of her best friend Joseph, June is positive she’s ready. But is an innocent little Mormon girl like June ever really ready to be cast as the love interest for the country’s hottest star, Lukas Leighton? When June lands a role in Hollywood’s most popular crime drama, Forensic Faculty, she finds herself caught off-guard by the fast-paced world of tabloids and paparazzi, and swept off her feet by her gorgeous co-star. Now June must decide what she’s willing to give up to achieve the title of Hollywood starlet—or more importantly, what’s too sacred to lose.

This was so cute!  I love stories like this one.  Finding June is teen LDS fiction that held plenty of adult crossover appeal. Those familiar with the LDS culture & terms could read this without complaint because it wasn’t preachy.  There was a nice mix of humor and romance and it’s a really quick read.  I recommend it to those who enjoy clean young adult romance.

Finding June is the first book in a series but it wrapped up without a cliffhanger.  Yes I want to read the next one but I wasn’t left with that dreaded I can’t believe the author is going to end the book right there and make us wait forever to find out what happens next feeling.
