BLOG TOUR STOP For Will the Real Abi Saunders Please Stand Up?
BLOG TOUR STOP for:
TITLE: Will the Real Abi Saunders Please Stand Up?
AUTHOR: Sara Hantz
I enjoy reading novels that act out some of the "real" life situations that I would have liked to have happen to me.
Granted, I am not a kickboxer (not even close) but I have always wanted to know what it would be like to somehow get thrown into the world of celebrity, without actually having to act, sing or anything like that and this book does a fantastic job of showing us just how an ordinary girl can find herself wrap up into a world that is overwhelming and so obviously not real.
Author Hantz portrays her main character as a down to earth girl who reluctantly finds herself the "double" for the it actress of the moment. Although she doesn't want to be in that place, she quickly gets engulfed and this is where the story line turns very interesting to me.
Becoming a diva, pushing away friends Liv and Matt and starting to buy your own press, these are the steps that Abi suddenly goes through, without even really noticing it (in the beginning) until she realizes just what she is doing and just how much the world she is now in is sucking the life out of her.
I admit, there is no new ground covered here, but the story is quick, fun and engaging which made this book a great read.
