Synopsis: (from Goodreads)
Casey Snow is grounded for life... or at least until she leaves for college.
After driving her car into the side of her parents’ garage, Casey is stuck filing papers in her mom’s office during the day, and confined to her house on the weekends. Worst of all, she’s not allowed to see her favorite band, Moving Neutral—whose lead guitarist, Blake Parker, just might be the love of Casey’s life.
But with her best friend’s help, Casey comes up with a plan to sneak out of her house for the concert. And as she’s standing in line at a coffee shop near the show, everything changes. Because behind her is Blake Parker, ready to sweep her away for the best summer of her life.
To be honest, when I think of this book I think of it like a wish fulfillment or fantasy situation. I mean, the whole randomly bumping in your favourite singer and falling in love and going on tour with him? It’s the plot of a zillion fanfics out there. It’s incredibly unlikely to happen, and yet... so much fun to read about. ‘Moving Neutral’ was predictable at times, but it definitely kept me reading.
I would have liked to have gotten more scenes of Casey and Blake falling for each other -- more getting to know Blake instead of just hearing second hand about how awesome he is. That’s my only real complaint about the book, though. I think this is one of those books that speak for themselves. You know what you're getting when you choose to read the book, and it delivers on those expectations. It’s a book that isn’t at all realistic, yet it’s completely fun. It’s like candy in a book form, if that makes sense. If you’re looking for that fun, frothy type of contemporary read then this is definitely a great book for you.
Pretty good; I think it's nice that it's simple, and I like the B&W.
