heartbreakerscover60316-mediumGenre: Young Adult

“When I met Oliver Perry, I had no clue he was the lead singer for The Heartbreakers. And he had no idea that I was the only girl in the world who hated his music.”

Stella will do anything for her sick sister, Cara—even stand in line for an autographed Heartbreakers CD…for four hours. She’s totally winning best birthday gift this year. At least she met a cute boy with soft brown hair and gorgeous blue eyes while getting her caffeine fix. Too bad she’ll never see him again.

Except, Stella’s life has suddenly turned into a cheesy love song. Because Starbucks Boy is Oliver Perry – lead singer for the Heartbreakers. And even after she calls his music crap, Oliver still gives Stella his phone number. And whispers quotes from her favorite Disney movie in her ear. OMG, what is her life?

But how can Stella even think about being with Oliver – dating and laughing and pulling pranks with the band – when her sister could be dying of cancer?


This was a really enjoyable YA Read. Immerse yourself in the crazy, prank filled, complicated world of the hugely popular boy band – The Heartbreakers. When Stella stops into a coffee shop, one early morning, she has no idea she’s just met one of the most popular singers in the world. Not just any singer, though. This singer is her triplet sisters FAVOURITE singer in the whole wide world!

Oliver Perry is the lead singer of The Heartbreakers, and when he meets Stella for the first time, there is an undeniable chemistry that passes between them. It’s just a shame he’ll never see her again. What ensues is a heart warming story of Stella and her journey of self-discovery. She has to deal with making grown-up decisions, and ensuring her sister (who is sick with Cancer), doesn’t miss out on the life she’s meant to lead.

Oliver provides his own amount of secrets, and grown up decision making that needs to happen, creating a really great coming of age story.

This story is brilliant for those YA fans, and anyone who may love 1D or 5SOS! You’ll want to be in Stella’s shoes as she hangs out with the biggest boy band in the world!

Book Review: Date with a Rockstar by Sarah Gagnon

Genre: Young Adult

Only one girl will win the cash prize…and a chance at love with Jeremy Bane. Monet isn’t just another lust-struck teenager trying to win the heart of Rock God Jeremy Bane–she needs the prize money from his new reality show to cure her illness.  Monet has Fluxem, a contagious disease that’s spread through saliva. It’s completely curable if you have enough money, which she and her single mother don’t. Now that she’s on the show, Monet has to work harder to keep her Fluxem hidden. She only has to keep the secret long enough to woo Jeremy Bane so he picks her as the winner. She doesn’t even care about the love part; the prize alone will change her life. But the real Jeremy Bane is nothing like she imagined. Monet finds herself fighting against feelings that make her want to give in to her attraction and Jeremy’s attempts for a kiss. The further she goes in the competition, the more impossible it becomes to resist him–and when the producers turn the tables and start digging up dirt on the contestants, Monet fears her secret will be revealed before she’s ready and ruin everything. The only way to win Jeremy’s heart is to tell him the truth, but confessing her disease could cost her the competition, the prize money, and him.


Fantastic YA debut novel from Sarah Gagnon. She has truly nailed the YA market with this one. This book was a delightful read and I can’t wait to share it with the world. Not only is this a great “Rock star” read that deviates from the typical Rock star type books, but it is set in the future! The story revolves around a teenage girl (she’s 17) who suffers from a curable disease. Unfortunately she can’t afford the cure. In order to get the money, she decides to try her luck on a reality series with a teen heartthrob, Jeremy Bane. Think Justin Bieberesque type guy (but probably nicer!!?!!). There is so much in this book that will keep the reader hooked to the story. It’s like the Bachelor for teens, in the future, with a Rock star! I loved the flawed character of Monet, and how the relationship she develops with the main character isn’t cliché. Their chemistry is subtle and is really comfortable. There is truly so much happening, and with lots of little twists and turns this book is sure to keep the YA reader intrigued and turning the pages into the early morning.
