Book Review

Last August, I gave a review of my favorite new book series, "Weddings by Bella."  Janice Thompson has produced another entertaining book, "Stars Collide", Back Stage Pass Series #1.

Kat and Scott are tv show stars on a show called "Stars Collide". Kat's grandmother, a famous star from the glory days of Hollywood, also plays on the show. Grandma appears to have the early onset of Alzheimer's disease. She mixes reality with fantasy of the show, and talks to the paparazzi. OY!

Although I enjoyed this book, characters lacked the depth that the characters had in the Bella series. There were funny moments and teary moments, like in Bella, but the characters seemed a bit shallow and "too good", with the exception of one child.

Hopefully if this becomes a series, the characters will be more real and we will get to know them better.
