If you're looking for a YA story that will leave you smiling, pick up In the Spotlight! I loved the protagonist Hannah as soon as I met her. She's a girl I think many teens can identify with. And her leading man Josh is a total sweetie who will capture your heart. Their relationship develops at a believable pace and has all the cute and awkward moments you expect from teen relationships.
I'm looking forward to more of Botts' work!

I would actually like to give this book 4.5 stars but SW doesn't allow that. I honestly wasn't overly wowed with this book. I found it a bit predictable and even a little cliched at times (even the MC points out the cliches at one point). But I did meet a group of characters who were all 110% genuine to me. Everyone had a unique voice, unique problems and depth. Grandma cracked me up (and scared me a little - amateur night - yikes!). I know Kyle was a jerk from the beginning and didn't understand how Hannah couldn't see it. Every time she wondered about Josh, I asked myself how she couldn't know - and had *I* been like that in high school? (to which I almost always answered yes.)
Even while the plot was predictable, this book was a fun read. I would love to read more from Ms. Botts and definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a light, fun YA contemporary read.
