#AlexFromTarget meets queer Prince Charming in this glittering romcom following a teen music prodigy and the handsome socialite who unwittingly turns him into an internet sensation.In a dingy Los Angeles club late one night, Cameron and Nate meet and find they have much more in common than their love of an obscure indie band. But when Nate learns that Cameron is the heir to a record label, the very one that destroyed his father's life, he runs away as fast as he can. The only evidence of their brief but intense connection is a blurry photo Cameron snaps of Nate's Sharpie-decorated Chuck Taylors as he flees. Considering that Cameron is a real life Prince Charming--he's handsome, famous, and rich--it's only fitting that he sets out to find the owner of the Sharpied shoes. Cameron's twin sister, a model and socialite, posts the picture of Nate's shoes on Instagram to her legions of fans with the caption, "Anyone know the gorgeous owner of these shoes? My hottie brother is looking for him." The internet just about breaks with the news of a modern fairy tale and the two become entwined in each other's lives in this sparkling story about the power of music, the demons that haunt us, and the flutterings of first real love....

She has a way of writing a happy-ending, light-feeling story while still tackling larger issues with sincerity. Obviously the romance is the focal point of the plot, but another level always exists to the narrative that shines equally as bright.

This was darling. I loved the music discussions, whether about great existing bands or the way playing makes you feel, and the characters are so darn loveable! Completely enjoyed this one.
Actual rating 3.5
This was a cute, deeply music-loving book. I appreciate how none of the parents and step-parents in this Cinderella-type tale are wicked, or ill-intentioned at all, even when they're not great. And I like how there aren't fairy godmothers who show up to fix things and disappear, but consistently supportive friends and siblings around the main characters. Really, the Cinderella part of the story is only the inciting incident, and it's very self-aware. The story after that, when the characters hav ...more
Aw, this book was so cute. I really, really loved Nate and Cameron. They were both so adorable and geeky.
The one problem I had with the book is a fault of my own. I have zero knowledge of music and there is a lot of music references and talk in this book. So, therefore, a lot of those parts went over my head. But the character and main story were good enough that I still loved the book.
I was happy about the lgbt representation in this book. I was pleasantly surprised about mental illness being ...more
