Synopsis:

I’m Mackenzie Wellesley, and I’ve spent my life avoiding the spotlight. But that was four million hits ago…

Blame it on that grade school ballet recital, when I tripped and pulled the curtain down, only to reveal my father kissing my dance instructor. At Smith High, I’m doing a pretty good job of being the awkward freshman people only notice when they need help with homework. Until I send a burly football player flying with my massive backpack, and make a disastrous–not to mention unwelcome–attempt at CPR. Just when I think it’s time for home schooling, the whole fiasco explodes on Youtube. And then the strangest thing happens. Suddenly, I’m the latest sensation, sucked into a whirlwind of rock stars, paparazzi, and free designer clothes. I even catch the eye of the most popular guy at school. That’s when life gets really interesting… 

Review:

Mackenzie had a normal life. She tutored a hockey star, helped anyone with homework, oh, and she’s a klutz.

An unfortunate incident happened and it just so been Mackenzie’s luck that it got filmed and put on Youtube.

Now pushed into internet stardom Mackenzie is trying to navigate how to be famous and not lose herself completely in the fame.

Mackenzie was hard for me to like in a way. She had a quirk and she tended to babble. After halfway through the babble started to get annoying. Some of the things that happened it the book didn’t overall feel like the story was connecting.

I didn’t quite feel the connection of Logan and Mackenzie. Or Mackenzie with anyone really.

I liked the plot. Just wish it was more detail in certain areas.
