Review: My Unscripted Life by Lauren Morrill



Book Blurb

Perfect for fans of Jennifer E. Smith and Huntley Fitzpatrick, you'll love this funny and sweet contemporary romance about a Southern girl ready for a ho-hum summer until she meets the boy of her dreams who happens to be an international pop star.

Sometimes love stories go off script.

Another sultry Georgia summer is about to get a lot hotter. Dee Wilkie is still licking her wounds after getting rejected by the precollege fine arts program of her dreams. But if she'd gone away, she wouldn't have been around to say yes to an unbelievable opportunity: working on the set of a movie filming in her small Southern town that just happens to be starring Milo Ritter, the famous pop star Dee (along with the rest of the world) has had a crush since eighth grade.

It's not like Dee will be sharing any screen time with Milo—she's just a lowly PA. And Milo is so disappointingly rude that Dee is eager to stay far away from him. Except after a few chance meetings, she begins to wonder if just maybe there's a reason for his offensive attitude, and if there's more to Milo than his good looks and above-it-all Hollywood pedigree. Can a relationship with a guy like Milo ever work out for a girl like Dee? Never say never. . .

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Dee Wilkie is complaining about the worst summer she is about to have.  Her best friend will be gone and she was rejected from the art program she wanted to attend.  However that all changes when a stranger approaches her for directions.  He invites her to be a PA on the set of the movie he is directing.  The star is Milo Ritter.  Dee has had a celebrity crush on Milo since middle school.
She decides to work on the movie set where she is placed in the props department getting to use her artistry in a new way.  She also comes face to face with her crush.  She is shocked speechless when it happens.  Then he comes off completely different from what she thought he would.
Her friend warns her away from him knowing that only heartache can result.  Dee is unsure what to do until Milo shows her who he really is.
I loved this book.  It is a cute story.  The characters were realistic and the situations believable.  The movie set was a cool touch because I had no idea what a behind the scenes view is like.  It was fascinating to read about a member of the crew.  I also liked how Dee dreaded her summer at first, then one moment changes everything.

The message is quite positive.  Keep your dreams even though life may change directions.  Dee was able to learn something new about herself and find a new direction for her art.  Milo also needed a new direction.  He is confusing but I like how he eventually comes around.  I like how the author portrayed him and the relationship he had with Dee.  I give it a 4 out of 5.
