Seventeen-year-old Kat Hartland loathes Unrequited, the world's biggest boy band. Is she the only girl in Sydney who can't be bothered with perfect-looking Angus Marsden?

Give her 5 Seconds of Summer. Now.

Or maybe the seriously-hot med student who rescued her on a train—and who could be Douglas Booth's twin! Perfect formal partner, much?

But when Kat comes face to face with Angus Marsden himself, things start to get complicated. Very. Throw in a deranged female popstar, final exams, a part in the musical and a mum who just doesn't get it—and where is her best friend?

When did life get so crazy? Kat's just an ordinary schoolgirl.

Isn't she?


My Review:
This book is written in a way that it follows different people around. It goes between Angus, Joel, Sarah, Lucy, and Kat. It was nice to be able to follow the different takes on everything and kind of understand everything between all the different heads. It would have been even more confusing if we didn't get that look. There is SOOO much that goes on between the people that it was written in a way that worked for the book.

Kat is in high school and wants to follow music for her career but is scared because she knows her mom won't support it. She gets by with singing at school musicals and calls it that. It isn't until she meets McDreamy on the train and started to write about the pull he has on her just from that one meet. Little did she know even after the train she would catch the eye of famous boyband, Angus Marsden. Just when she thinks she understands the world of boybands and music, she learns that maybe they are just normal guys, which one will she choose?

I liked Joel. He seemed really sweet and even with the ending I was glad that he tried through everything going on. He never gave up even when that would have been the easy way out. I felt a pull towards him at first but ended up switching teams about halfway through the book. I was shocked by this. I don't think I've ever changed teams once I get onto one!

Angus gives off the cocky vibe that he can get anyone because of who he is. When he sees Kat ignoring his concert and him, he is set off balance. His goal becomes finding this girl, but what do you do when even being famous can't help you find her? As the book goes on you get to know him even more and that is the reason I switched teams. I got to watch how he really thinks and the actions he goes through for Kat. It was so sweet, he did so much for her and took the chance of going down with her.

There is a lot of love as well as confusion in this book. One minute someone doesn't want something, the next they do. It happens all throughout the book with different characters. This annoyed me a little. It felt like you were thrown around a little bit. As I enjoyed the different character point of views, I also felt like the switching of POVs was a little more smooth. I felt they were choppy at times and sometimes I had to really try to figure out who's POV I was in at the moment.

The ending is also part of the reason I had to drop a star. You follow them all around pretty much waiting for answers and one of them kind of fell to the side for a bit. You didn't know if they got together or not. The last final chapter also made me a little angry because I thought I was going to read something and not get closure, but luckily I did get closure, I just wish I got more of it. With the way the book was written, just because something happened at one time doesn't mean it would stay that way. Curve balls were thrown constantly.

I still really enjoyed the book. I loved getting inside all their heads and watching all the romance blossom....or fizzle depending on which one was trying to happen at a time. It was a nice light read that easily drags you through the pages and keeps you reading until the end.
