Review: Now You See Her by Jacquelyn Mitchard

Summary from Goodreads

Hope has it all: brains, beauty, and acceptance at Starwood, a prestigious arts prep school. A mere sophomore, she has won the lead in Romeo and Juliet, beating out seniors for the role—seniors who have been in movies and on Broadway! And with handsome Logan as her Romeo onstage and off, her life couldn't be more perfect.
So why would this talented teen throw everything away? Why would she fake her own abduction? Hope wants to explain what really happened, and gradually the truth comes out: Maybe her life wasn't that perfect after all.
In her first novel for young adults, national bestselling author Jacquelyn Mitchard takes us into a world where appearance is everything, and nothing is exactly as it seems.

My Take
Well, I really didn't find this book enjoyable. It is basically about a spoiled girl named Hope who has everything, and throws it all away for love. for a good half of the book Hope goes on and on about how amazing her life is, and how she belittles others. Hope is an actress. She has everything. Smarts, Looks, and Talent. She throws it all away when she meets a boy named Logan Rose. Logan is an actress, and a few years older then Hope. She falls for him, and they both fake Hope's abduction. The book goes along to tell how this happens. However towards the end the book takes a drastic change and we find out something that is completely crazy (not spoiling!) The book is a fast passed read. I like how the book was written, I just don't like the story. But give it a try, id love to hear your opinions!

My Rating

2 out of 5 stars

  1. It's hard to make a reader care about a character with such obvious character flaws, especially if it takes a long time for the character to grow or change at all. I think I'll steer clear of this one and thanks for your review!
