Book Summary: 

Kristen Morgan’s blog is about to get her into trouble. Deep trouble. Online, she is known as “Stargazer” from the popular Stargazing from Nowhere blog, while in real life she is a regular fifteen-year-old high school student. This online anonymity is quite liberating, allowing her to be completely honest with her readers. Through a twist of fate, Rising Tide, the band she has bashed the most online, ends up in her small town, which sends Kristen into an excited panic. To continue gathering fresh material for her blog, she poses as a Rising Tide fan. After sneaking into the band’s private party, she comes face to face with the band’s drummer, Michael Stevens, who happens to be even more gorgeous in person than she cares to admit. Something unexpected also happens to her when she meets him: she becomes giddy, nervous, and inarticulate, leading Kristen to realize that her interest in Michael has nothing to do with her blog, but everything to do with her heart. As Kristen and Michael grow closer, does she have to make a choice between blog or boyfriend…Or is the choice made for her?


I liked the concept of this story as I grew up as a teenager in a very small town where everyone knew everyone else.  If blogs had been as big back in my teenage years, I can totally see me being just like the main character blogging about something I was passionate about.  Now the possibility of a big rock band hanging out in my small town, that probably would never happen; though we did have a local country singer and my mom knew his parents, so that was pretty cool.   I did find the story line to be predictable, but sometimes that is difficult to avoid.  I am excited that there is a real Stargazing from Nowhere blog that one can visit and an entire website to interact with.  There is also talk of a sequel, so if you want a fun, quick read while you are at the beach, this would probably fit the bill. 

Rating: 4 Stars – Great Book

Content:  good clean teenage book
