High school junior Jenny Greenley is so good at keeping secrets that she's the school newspaper's anonymous advice columnist. She's so good at it that, when hotter-than-hot Hollywood star Luke Striker comes to her small town to research a role, Jenny is the one in charge of keeping his identity under wraps. But Luke doesn't make it easy, and soon everyone—the town, the paparazzi, and the tabloids alike—know his secret...and Jenny is caught right in the middle of all the chaos.
After I finished How to Be Popular, I decided to continue with Meg Cabot and jump right into Teen Idol. I again listened to the audiobook, which was read by Elizabeth Moss and was 6 hours, 1 minute long.
- The story was cute, funny and witty. It was simple and easy-going, so it was enjoyable for my commutes to and from work.
- Jenny was a fun character, she was smart and referred to as mayonnaise because she got everyone to get along. I could really relate to that, I always seem to get along with everyone and it is easy to keep the peace. Actually there has been like one girl I used to work with that does not like me, and for no good reason, and it really still upsets me, even though I don’t see this girl ever! LOL.
- I felt like the setting for the story was a lot like How to be Popular, I kept wondering if it was even the same school because of the similarities. It was definitely true to the high school experience.
- Meg Cabot does a great job weaving themes into her stories without being preachy. I like that a lot.
- No big gripes, it was not an earth-shaking novel, just a good time all around.
