A deliciously charming novel about finding true love . . . and yourself.

Nothing ever happens in Little, CA. Which is just the way Carter Moon likes it. But when Hollywood arrives to film a movie starring former child star turned PR mess Adam Jakes, everything changes. Carter's town becomes a giant glittery set and, much to her annoyance, everyone is starry-eyed for Adam. Carter seems to be the only girl not falling all over herself to get a glimpse of him. Which apparently makes her perfect for the secret offer of a lifetime: playing the role of Adam's girlfriend while he's in town, to improve his public image, in exchange for a hefty paycheck. Her family really needs the money and so Carters agrees. But it turns out Adam isn't at all who she thought he was. As they grow closer, their relationship walks a blurry line between what's real and what's fake, and Carter must open her eyes to the scariest of unexplored worlds - her future. Can Carter figure out what she wants out of life AND get the guy? Or are there no Hollywood endings in real life?

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

From Catch a Falling Star:

At a small turn of the path, we came to a fountain under a trellis flowering with fuchsia blooms. Adam laced his fingers with mine, sending a warm jolt through me. I tried to listen to what he was saying, but suddenly I felt soaked in sadness.

Adam noticed, leaned into me a bit, and whispered, "You okay?" I could hear cameras behind us, like tiny dogs nipping at our heels.

I nodded, hoping to shed this feeling, so foreign to me. "I'm fine. Just tired . . ."

Truth was, I was sad because none of this was real. And that was suddenly a huge problem.

Because I really liked this guy, the version of him that broke through his cloud cover once in a while.

I had expected to tolerate the tantrums of a brash, selfish movie star for a few weeks, smile, grit my teeth, and quietly count my cash, help my brother out, ease my parents' stress. Adam wasn't supposed to have flashes of cute and smart and interesting. He wasn't supposed to make me feel like this. Like I could float away into the sky.

Only in the movies, right?
