4 stars - Great Read!

Meet Josephine Foster, or Zo Jo as she’s called in the biz. The best pint-sized photographer of them all, Jo doesn’t mind doing what it takes to get that perfect shot, until she’s sent on an undercover assignment to shoot Ned Hartnett—teen superstar and the only celebrity who’s ever been kind to her—at an exclusive rehabilitation retreat in Boston. The money will be enough to pay for Jo’s dream: real photography classes, and maybe even quitting her paparazzi gig for good. Everyone wants to know what Ned’s in for. But Jo certainly doesn’t know what she’s in for: falling in love with Ned was never supposed to be part of her assignment.


Shooting Stars was a quick and entertaining read. I didn't expect it to be so good but it definitely was. 

There weren't that many characters but the one's that were important, were good. Jo is a smart and highly talented girl. She's only 16 but she was able to be a pretty successful paparazzi. Throughout the book readers are able to watch her mature and figure out what she really wants to do with her life. Paparazzi or photography classes. Ned was a pretty interesting character as well and had a few secrets he was hiding. I enjoyed reading about him and finding out why he was at the retreat. There were some friends of Jo's that were supportive and entertaining as well.

I enjoyed the plot line and just watching the characters grow. The story wasn't heavy but was entertaining and light. A good read if your stuck in doors like I am. :) Again, it's a quick read but will keep you interested and wanting to reveal the characters secrets. There is also some romance that is fun and light. The characters and the story feels real. I definitely recommend checking this one out!
