Book Review: Jesse's Girl by Miranda Kenneally

Maya loves music more than anything, so when career day comes around she asks to be a musician. Her expectation is to be stuck in the music department at Wal-Mart, so it comes as a surprise that she ends up at a Jesse Scott concert at the Grand Ole Opry, backstage to see if he will let her shadow him.

Jesse Scott, the country superstar musician who won Wannabe Superstar when he was 10, and is so not Maya's type, She prefers 80's rock, but she can't deny he's cute, and a rock star, and even though they don't quite hit it off, Jesse agrees to let her shadow him for the day.

In a day that pays homage to the great 80's movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Jessie and Maya go off schedule earning her a few weeks of dentition, and him a new friend. With a shared love of music and fast cars, Maya finds her self attracted to Jesse. However, the fact that she was just rejected by the guy she liked, and kicked out of the band she formed, it's hard to trust him. Even if he is "Jesse Scott". Plus, Jesse has trust issues of his own, and how can he be sure if Maya only likes him for him for his connections?

True to Miranda Kenneally style, Jesse's Girl is a fun fast read that will have you falling in love with the characters. Maya is the sassy younger sister of Sam Henry from Catching Jordan, and other Hundred Acres characters pop up as well. Recommended fore summer readers looking for a bit of romance, and music!

I'll see you @ the library!
