Synopsis via Goodreads
Cash Carter is the young, world famous lead actor of the hit television Wiz Kids. When four fans jokingly invite him on a cross-country road trip, they are shocked that he actually takes them up on it. Chased by paparazzi and hounded by reporters, this unlikely crew takes off on a journey of a lifetime–but along the way they discover that the star they love has deep secrets he’s been keeping. What they come to learn about the life of the mysterious person they thought they knew will teach them about the power of empathy and the unbreakable bond of true friendship
I was so excited to get my hands on this! It did not disappoint! I have been seeing so many mixed reviews for this but I really enjoyed it!
Our main characters all have their own personal stories going on throughout this book. Colfer did a great job of letting each of them have their own voice. I could always tell who was who during the dialogue. I found the characters to be very likable. This is one hell of a diverse group and I love that. There is someone for everyone in this book.
We have Cash Carter super star who seems to be turning bad boy I loved him and the dynamic he brought to the group! Our four friends Topher, Sam, Joey and Mo feel as though their friendship exists only because of Cashes show Wiz Kids. They think without it they have nothing in common, because of this they are keeping very big secrets from each other. The appearance of Cash is going to change everything they thought they knew and also change them.
This book truly shows you the meaning of not ever knowing whats going on inside the people the around you. You may think that you know someone, maybe you think they have everything together and know who they want to be. Maybe you wish you were more like them. Only to find out they are just as crazy as you trying to figure life out one step at a time.
Though some moments and situations seemed a little predictable it was still a fun fast read. It never slowed down or made you bored. THE END was so worth everything. I did see it coming about half way through but honestly not even mad about it! The tears, the happy, the friends, the sad, it was PERFECT. If you loved Chris Colfer’s first YA book this one will not disappoint. Great fun, friend power, fluffy read! 4 stars!
