The classic story of a small town nobody pulled into a life of fame is not new, but Kim Culbertson tells this version well. Carter and her friends are delightfully quirky characters and the town of Little charmed me enough to consider moving immediately. Adam Jakes is intriguing as well, with his stereotypical Hollywood narcissism that hides a kinder and more complex person. Culbertson also creatively embellishes this classic story by including star gazing metaphors and profound lessons about friendship, service, and life decisions. What I expected to be a fluffy romance was actually an endearing story of a strong girl finding her place in the world. Carter Moon's entertaining experience is perfect for teens trying to define their future.
