-- My Thoughts --
Livvie is just your average teenage girl. The one who avoids attention and prefers to stay off the high school radar. But when, in one of her classes, an intriguing assignment comes up. Livvie is thrilled to be part of the paparazzi group. The class is divided into three parts: The Celebrities (the ones who should get used to being followed), The Tabloids (the ones whom the paparazzi bring photos to), and The Paparazzi (the ones who stalk the celebrities).Having to work with the cute, charming Chas as a tabloid is definitely fun. But when reality and acts mix and a simple project turns into chaos what should you do? Find out more in this awesome high school tale, The Paparazzi Project...
The first thing that captured me in this book was the idea of the assignment. Because, in my school, we are only 8 students in class. The SAME 8 students share the same classes, and our number is too small to
do these kinds of assignments so it was intriguing to read about it. The characters were nothing special but that did not bother me.
The little romance between Livvie and Chas was cute, teenage crushes and I liked that. I am kinda tired of the I-would-die-without-you, deep-within-the-heart romances in other books. What I didn't like though, was Livvie's choices. They were stupid and I cannot give much away without giving spoilers so you gotta read it for yourself.
This book was enjoyable and realistic. But it had its bad moments, which fortunately, were not many. You gotta read this book for yourself to find out if it is indeed, your cup of dark chocolate (or coffee, or tea, whatever you fancy)
