Book Review of Starstruck by Jenny McLachlan
Pearl is used to being the center of attention and has the school musical’s lead role in the bag and gets to kiss Jake Flower. Suddenly, new-girl Hoshi arrives and steals her part, friends and Jake’s affections.
This book is a cute, light read. The language is simple and easy to understand and you really understand the mean-girl perspective through the protagonist Pearl. This book is geared towards girls eight and up, therefore it was hard for me to fall in love with the book due to its simplistic nature.
I rate this book 4 stars out of 5. I would recommend it to young girls in need of a sweet love story.
