Number of pages: 257
I think out of the whole series this one was the most disappointing. As an ending to a series it was very open ended. Through the entire book we see how Mac struggles to keep up her friendships with the Inner Circle while still maintaining her friendships.
With Emily, she is onset with her constantly and the leading actor, Davey, that Emily has had a crush on forever, starts to crush on Mac. Mac doesn’t want to hurt Emily but really likes Davey too. In this way, she says she is going to try to avoid Davey but in actuality, she spends a lot of time with him! (She’s a little hypocritical which I didn’t like)
Mac also gets Becks into the Dixie Gals (a campaign for surfing), but ultimately ignores her friend and rarely helps her out because she’s so buys helping Emily on set. Becks befriends the other Dixie Gals, and they seem nice but there’s a twist at the end of the story that makes your heart really go out to Becks.
Finally, Coco. Coco is still trying to get out of her mothers superstar spotlight and she tries to perform her music in little known coffee shops so that people won’t recognize her. However, this doesn’t work and she goes undercover to attempt to see what people really think of her before they already judge her for simply being her mothers daughter.
The book was a little dry. I wished there had been more details about Emily on set, Coco performing, and Becks surfing and hanging out with the Dixie Gals. In the first couple of books I really liked Mac but she was so dull in this third installment. I needed some action! And I sadly never got it. Like I said before there was also a lot of open ended questions and problems that were never resolved from the first two books and I definitely felt there could have been one more book.
If I was rating this book I would give it 2 out of 5 stars but the series itself was a 4 out of 5 for me. Check it out for some easy reading!
See you soon!
